Courtney made her comedic debut on the Classic stage in 2018 - after 30 years of testing material on her friends, whanau, random party goers, unsuspecting train conductors, long-suffering bar staff and the occasional police officer.
True to her self-deprecating brand of humour, it would make Courtney slightly uncomfortable to acknowledge that she was joint winner of the 2019 Raw Quest, and voted Best Newcomer in the 2019 Comedy Guild Awards, but true to her nature as a yarn/drama queen, after a drink or two and she’ll tell you all about it. As seen on TVNZ’s Laughs Unleashed and Māori TV’s Rags are Riches.
