Video: Comedian Angela Barnes takes us on a tour of Auckland's waterfront

May 5, 2016 Theatre

New Zealand comedian Nic Sampson has lived in Auckland for 10 years, and in that time learned almost nothing about it. Thankfully, the NZ International Comedy Festival is upon us and some kindly visiting comedians have offered to help Nic out by giving him a tour of some of its most iconic places. His final stop? Auckland’s waterfront, guided by British comedian Angela Barnes. Well, as soon as she’s finished her drink…
