New Zealand Comedy Trust and Best Foods Mayo present


Tickets on sale now!

The Best Foods Comedy Gala returns to the Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre for 2021!

The Galas will launch the 2021 NZ Intl. Comedy Festival with a bang, and what better way to kick off than a line-up of some of NZ’s best comedians in one huge show!

In 2020 we brought you the cream of Aotearoa’s comedy crop including Urzila Carlson, Ben Hurley, Pax Assadi and even the Topp Twins – so what will 2021 hold? We’ll be revealing all in mid Feb, but now’s the time to secure the best seats in the house for this Kiwi comedy extravaganza!

Treat yourself to a night full of funnies and taste-test some of the top talent in this year's fest. 


Proceeds from this show will be invested by the NZ Comedy Trust into further development of the comedy industry.

Ensure you are purchasing genuine tickets direct from Ticketmaster.
