Tickets on sale now! Get in quick to secure the best seats!

Hosted by crowd favourite Arj Barker, this year’s Best Foods Comedy Gala launches the 2018 NZ International Comedy Festival with one hell of an illustrious night of comedy. 

Featuring a hilarious spread of talent at Wellington’s Opera House, this will be a super funny taster of who’s to come over the next three weeks.

Alongside Arj you’ll be treated to Irish comedy superstar Andrew Maxwell, American country-music legend Wilson Dixon, razor-witted Aussie Rhys Nicholson, spectacular comedy duo The Fan Brigade, with more acts to be announced.

Join us for a fast-paced event celebrating some of the world’s hottest gags and comedy stars. A rare opportunity to see so much talent in one room, this mouthwatering line-up is not to be missed!

Proceeds from this show will be invested by the New Zealand Comedy Trust into supporting the growth of our comedy industry in Aotearoa.
