The Best Foods Comedy Gala returns to Wellington for another side-splitting year, launching the 2020 NZ International Comedy Festival with Best Foods Mayo with a fast-paced night of top shelf comedy.
Leading the line-up for this year’s event are NZ’s favourite comedic export of recent years, Tape Face (NZ), The Chase’s Paul Sinha (UK) is back, award-winning Josie Long (UK) makes her long-awaited stand-up return, and wildly popular Kiwi duo The Fan Brigade bring their publicly and critically acclaimed musical comedy to the stage.
The winner of Best International Show at the 2016 Comedy Fest, Felicity Ward (AUS) will return to host this stellar night of comedy at The Opera House. But wait, there’s more – further acts to be announced!
Expect an all-star line-up featuring some of the best to launch this year’s Comedy Fest, packed into two and a half hours of rollicking good times.
Proceeds from the show will be invested by the NZ Comedy Trust into further development of the comedy industry.
