Launched in 1995, the Raw Comedy Quest is New Zealand’s biggest comedy competition, with up to $2500 in prize money, the glory and promises of further work as a professional comedian to be won.
Since it began almost 30 years ago hundreds of Kiwi’s have made a stand at the Raw Comedy Quest. Some have gone on to enjoy continued success as part time and full time performers. Many others have discovered that all they are good for is a few jokes at the office party. But most importantly all of them have faced humankind’s greatest fear – ‘Public Speaking’, with the added expectation of being funny.
