Sam Smith and Robbie Ellis: Augmented Fourth (NZ International Comedy Festival)

SONY DSCIt’s a fact: there has never been a NZ musical comedy duo which has had major international success, toured all over the world, and had a spectacularly bitter breakup… until now… ahem.

This is the story of Augmented Fourth. Its rise from a school common room to the world’s biggest arenas seemed unstoppable, until the band split up in spectacular fashion. Reuniting for one last tour, will you be treated to the most thrilling concert of your lives, or a total meltdown?

Featuring the comedic and musical talents of Sam Smith and Robbie Ellis, Augmented Fourth promises drama, intrigue, musical genius, and more than a few puns.

You’ve seen them together in stand-up, sketch, Song Sale, musicals, Greek tragedy, improv, ska bands, barbershop quartets and bluegrass. Now see their debut feature show. Recommended for anybody who has ever listened to any music ever.
