The Good Oil - Comedy Debate

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Thu 15 Aug ’19, 7:30pm – 9:30pm


TSB Theatre - TSB Showplace, 92 Devon St West, New Plymouth


Adults Only


Winter Fest

Bringing a comedy kick to the traditional debate, strap in for a raucous night of head-to-head banter about offshore oil and gas exploration in Aotearoa. Expect a good amount of belly laughing as two teams of comedy pros and talking experts hash out this politically contentious and environmentally poignant topic.

The evening’s verbal warfare will be hosted by master orator Mark Sainsbury (Newshub, RadioLive). Ready to drill down deep are Pax Assadi (NZ Comedian of the Year nominee 2018), Michele A’Court (NZ Female Comedian of the Decade 2010), Jeremy Elwood (7 Days, 2008 Gag of the Year – NZ Comedy Guild Awards), Ginette McDonald (Lyn of Tawa, ONZM), Kura Forrester (The Breaker Upperers, What We Do In The Shadows) and Jesse Griffin (creator of country and western legend Wilson Dixon)”.

These wordy trouble makers will employ every ounce of intellect, bewitchery, nuance and comedy gold they possess to outwit their opponents. Whose rebuttals will fizzle out? Who will claim victory with a torch of glory high above their heads?.

And most importantly, will Sainsbury manage to keep these fiery contenders in line?
