In the first of our series of New Zealand International Comedy Festival 2014 video casts we met the Billy T nominees.
Billy T James changed the face of comedy in this country, and to celebrate his memory and achievements, the New Zealand Comedy Trust created the annual Billy T Award to support our up-and-coming comedians
The nominees for the 2014 Billy T Award will be judged on all aspects of their 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival show. The final performances and judging will take place at Last Laughs, on Sunday 18 May 2014.
