NZ International Comedy Festival
The NZ International Comedy Festival is a highlight on the entertainment calendar. Its broad mainstream appeal has been demonstrated by consistently high audience attendance since it’s inception in 1993. Held simultaneously over three weeks in Auckland and Wellington during April & May each year, the Festival then takes to the road with the Comedy Convoy, touring to regional cities across New Zealand.
With an average ticket price of just over $26, the Festival is not only a hugely popular event, but also an extremely accessible one. With comedy performances ranging from stand up, sketch, improv, theatre, children's and musical comedy we aim to provide something for everyone to laugh at.
The Festival is a curated umbrella Festival, which means the performers and producers wishing to be a part of the programme must submit an application to the Festival. The Festival then selects the appropriate acts and programmes the venues accordingly.
If you are interested in performing at the Festival, applications will open in September, and then close in mid October (exact dates TBC). To ensure you're kept in the loop, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add you to our performers and producers email list.
