Guy’s big ‘royal’ gig


Nelson’s comedy king is coming home.

Guy Williams will perform in Nelson for the first time in three years when he takes to the stage on Valentine’s Day.

Guy is best known for appearing on the Jono and Ben Show and will realise a childhood dream on Friday night.

“It’s my first time doing the legendary Theatre Royal.”

This has been a goal of Guy’s after growing up watching his younger sister and brother do youth theatre there.

In between the laughs, Guy says he is relishing the chance to come back home.

“This show is secretly also a chance to have a holiday in Nelson and catch up with family.”

However, they may not be in the audience come show time.

“My family, especially my parents, really hate my shows.”

Much to his parents delight, Guy is also bringing his siblings on stage.

“Hopefully, my younger sister Maria will be an opening act and I’m trying to talk my younger brother into doing it, too.”

Guy says he hopes to put on a political show that “doesn’t suck”.

“I know that sounds impossible and I can’t promise that I will achieve this amazing goal, but I’ll give it a good shake because we’ve all got to do something to fill in the time before we die.”

The show, which starts at 8pm, is ‘pay what you want’ – from $10 to $40.
