Update: "We are incredibly sad to announce that this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival has been cancelled."
The Best Foods Comedy Gala returns to Auckland for another side-splitting year, launching the 2020 NZ International Comedy Festival with Best Foods Mayo with a fast-paced night of top shelf comedy.
Leading the line-up for this year’s event are NZ’s favourite comedic export of recent years, Tape Face (NZ), The Chase’s Paul Sinha (UK) is back, the award-winning Aaron Chen (AUS) makes his Best Foods Comedy Gala debut and local powerhouse-pop-duo Two Hearts (Laura Daniel and Joseph Moore) will bring the house down with their original hits dripping in satire and irony.
The winner of Best International Show at the 2016 Comedy Fest, Felicity Ward (AUS) will return to host this stellar night of comedy at the Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre. But wait, there’s more – further acts to be announced!
Expect an all-star line-up featuring some of the best to launch this year’s Comedy Fest, packed into two and a half hours of rollicking good times.
Proceeds from the show will be invested by the NZ Comedy Trust into further development of the comedy industry.
Please note: this show is filmed for broadcast for TVNZ. Latecomers may need to wait to be seated.
