Our Acts…

The Undercover Show
Imagine an event where your dining experience is, shall we say…‘less than optimal'…where one waiter in particular just seems to ‘not want to be there'… Add in a swift, confident and slightly highly strung Maitre'd and you have the recipe for an entertaining night. The Undercover Show is Ward & Tutheridge's most-booked act, wowing audiences all over the country. The pair work the room, always leaving guests guessing at their genuineness, yet once the reveal happens at the end of the main meal, it's a hilarious musical comedy show that has audiences in stitches.
Opera, comedy, audience interaction, improvised song…it's all there in this magical act. And as an add-on, Ward & Tutheridge have the flexibility to facilitate awards ceremonies that follow on from the evening's entertainment, providing the total package as they have successfully done for clients such as BP Oil, Jani-King, Natural Products NZ, RNZ Coastguard – to name a few, in combining the show and MC package.
