OUR MISSION: To make people laugh.
HOW: By championing the art of comedy in all its forms as a recognised and integral part of the New Zealand arts sector.
WHAT: We create unique opportunities that promote and develop a sustainable and diverse comedy industry.

The New Zealand Comedy Trust is a not-for-profit charitable organisation. Since 1995, we’ve passionately showcased the most exciting comedians from both New Zealand and throughout the world at the annual NZ International Comedy Festival.

What you may not realise, is our team also works to support the wider comedy industry, with a specific focus on working with comedians to professionally develop their skills, network and establish themselves a career in comedy. To read more about our development initiatives, click here.
