The Search for NZ’s Best New Stand-up Talent Is On!
Nearly every Monday since The Classic Comedy Club opened in October 1997, the mic has been open for Rookies. Over 800 Raw Comedy shows featuring upwards of 1,500 ‘would be’ comedians. And a highlight of the Raw Comedy calendar is the annual Raw Comedy Quest - the search for the funniest new comedian of the year.
In 2017 the quest for the newest comedy talent will be going further afield to even more New Zealand locations from February to April culminating on May 18th with the Grand Final at Q Theatre, Auckland. Alongside the heats in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, with plans to extend heats into Hamilton, New Plymouth, Tauranga, Napier/Hastings, and possibly Dunedin.
The Classic bar & ticket office are open from 6.30pm.
We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before the show to ensure you get a good seat.
Latecomers are not guaranteed entry.
The Classic is a licensed bar requiring all minors (under 18) to be accompanied by their parent at all times. Entry will not be granted to unaccompanied minors, those without ID or intoxicated persons.
