Comic friends help school

GARY McCormick and Tim Shadbolt will be bringing their comic talents to Sherenden and Districts School on April 4.

The friends have performed together for more than 30 years. At the peak of their persuasive powers, they still employ the face-to-face approach to challenging the nation’s problems.

They don’t take themselves too seriously and are proud to celebrate the kiwi within.

Tickets to the Barrel of Laughs show cost $50, which includes a light supper and a glass of wine. All proceeds go to the school. The show starts at 7.30 pm. Tickets are available from the school on 874 3738.
