The Finalists for the 20th Anniversary of the RAW Comedy Quest

After 2 months of heats in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch involving upwards of 200 contestants a final short list of 11 rookies has been settled on for the Grand Final on Sat May 16th at Q Theatre in Auckland.

In alphabetical order the Grand Finalists are...



Jamaine Ross, James Roque & Pax Assadi

Creative yet relatable, and I left The Basement wanting to be friends with them in real life.
