"Two talented young men who are sure to go far. If you want laughs and magic then this is the show for you." – Chris Cox – The Award-Winning Mind Reader Who Can't Read Minds 

Many great comedy acts have emerged from Wellington City over the years, appearing on our local stages out of thin air. The act PANIC! takes this in a more literal sense, intertwining high class magic tricks with knee slapping humour, leaving audiences alarmed and charmed.

Kade Nightingale and Jeremy Rolston together have perfected their own unique ‘two in one' style of comedy and magic. These fresh young faces are taking on the Wellington performance scene with a bang and won't stop until you are on the edge of your seat! This year in the Wellington fringe, PANIC! is coming back for round two, this time gracing the stage of the mighty BATS Theatre.

Get involved and join Kade and Jeremy for a night of hilarity as they explore and display the ways we react when in PANIC!

10pm, Thurs 14th- Sat 16th February

"Jeremy and Kade have got be one of the most unique double acts around.  Jeremy seems to be an idiot but is in fact a brilliant comic and a master of magic. Kade is a kinetic whirlwind of mimicry and lateral thinking. These two are a throwback to double acts of the past. The new Laurel and Hardy only with magic."-Danny Mulheron , Acclaimed Actor, Writer and Director
