The Classic present the Open L8 : Raw Comedy Slam 2021

Every Saturday at 10:30pm in the 2021 NZ Comedy Festival , the home of live comedy goes D.I.Y. with an open mic for all-comers. Yes YOU!

Each Saturday night our guest Pro MC introduces up to 16 rookies in a fast paced action packed comedy battle. Can you become a Pro Comedian in just 3 weeks?

At the end of the Fest The Boss will be choosing one act to go ‘next level’ plus every Saturday night our panel of 'experts' will be picking winners including ;

The ‘People’s Choice’ - best act of the night based on the audience reaction

The ‘Best Bit’ - the most original show stopping bit of comedy - not necessarily the whole routine.

The ‘Best Song’ - funniest, most entertaining song of the night.

The Classic Tech’s 'Pick of the Night’ - might not be the people's choice. It might not be the judges choice. But The Classic Tech sees more comedy than anyone else in NZ so we are giving them a say in the matter.

The MC's 'Audience Faves' - Even the audience will win prizes just for being good sports. Cash, Bar Tabs & Tickets to Laugh to be won. Our MC will decide.

Only open to genuine rookies. No pro’s, no ring-ins.

Just 3 nights only - May 8th, 15th and 22nd.
