These may still be ‘unprecedented times’, but a bit of laughter is the best medicine!* Prepare yourself for a homegrown spread of gourmet giggles at the Best Foods Christmas Comedy Gala, hosted by the hilarious Pax Assadi, on Saturday 7 November at The Civic.

A superstar of the Kiwi comedy scene - Urzila Carlson joins the line up! Since starting her comedy career 12 years ago, Urzila has shot to superstardom, with her own Netflix special Overqualified Loser, a slew of awards and last year she became the highest selling comedian ever at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (one of the biggest festivals in the world!). Her trademark deadpan humour and cheeky wit have won her fans around the globe. You don't want to miss this world-class act, live on stage this November.

Star of stage, screen and the airwaves, Guy Williams brings his deadpan humour to the Gala, alongside the insightful, sardonic and very, very clever star of Mean Mums Cori Gonzalez-Macuer. We’re stoked to welcome the host of our 2019 Last Laughs and youngest ever winner of the Fred Award Rhys Mathewson and our very first international guest, Australian comic Laura Davis! One of Aotearoa’s busiest comics, and co-host of NZ’s most successful podcast The Worst Idea of All Time, Tim Batt will be making an appearance, as will NZ comedy legend Tarun Mahanbhai. And rounding out the line up, sketch and improv comic turned stand up, Palmerston North’s very own Nick Gibb!

Plus we’ve got appearances from The Topp Twins, Ben Hurley, Justine Smith, Hayley Sproull, Two Hearts (Laura Daniel x Joseph Moore), Melanie Bracewell, James Nokise, Eli Matthewson, The Fan Brigade, James Roque, Donna Brookbanks, Paul Douglas and our fabulous host Pax Assadi!
And there it all is, 21 of Aotearoa’s best comedians, all in one stunning night at The Civic – it’s set to be NZ’s comedy’s biggest night of the year! Tickets are all sold out, but snag a spot on the waitlist and be the first to know about any last minute tickets!
