Topp Twins appear in 'Funny As' series

Funny As - the story of New Zealand comedy traces the history of New Zealand comedy through archive footage, and extensive interviews with local comedy talent.

Debuting on TVNZ 1 on Sunday 21 July, the five-part series explores how Kiwis "have used comedy to navigate decades of profound cultural change".

Funny As touches on everything from live and musical comedy, to pioneers of Kiwi screen humour (e.g. Fred Dagg, Lynn of Tawa) and the hit exports of later years (Flight of the Conchords, Rose Matafeo).

Making a huge contribution to the landscape of NZ comedy, The Topp Twins appear in Episode 1 which focuses on women in comedy, and Episode 4 which talks about musical comedy.

We can’t wait to tune in.
