NZ Comedy Festival & Parrotdog presents

Sunday Roast

Hosted by Tom Sainsbury

The 2024 NZ International Comedy Festival are partnering with Parrotdog Brewery and bringing back a favourite from 2023’s Visa Wellington On a Plate, by mashing together the beloved Sunday night feast with a tasty selection of comedians in a hilarious night of comedy like no other!

Tom Sainsbury hosts a night of stand-up and silliness with mates Courtney Dawson, Lesa MacLeod-Whiting, and Pax Assadi. All this nestled amongst a delicious two-course dinner and snacks created by Parrotdog’s chef:

Fries on arrival


Thyme & lemon brined roast chicken OR

Roasted eggplant for non-meat eaters (GF / VEGAN / NF) Garlic & rosemary potatoes,  Grilled broccolini, braised cabbage & gravy 


Chocolate gelato with chocolate crumb. (VEGAN / GF / NF)

*Food is prepared in a kitchen that may contain nuts and potential for cross contamination of nut/ soy/ egg/ gluten 

Plus your choice of iconic Parrotdog beer at its home in Lyall Bay. It’s a great chance to try our especially brewed Comedy Fest x Parrotdog collab LAUGHER beer.

Last year’s show featured stand up, pub quizzes, and formidable sculptures of Wellington icons made from wine gums… be there to get in on the creative shenanigans with Tom, Pax, Courtney & Lesa. A great excuse to get your mates together and enjoy scrumptious food, delicious beer, and more laughs than your typical family dinner.
