Do it yourself in the festival!

Over the last ten years, The Classic has seen hundreds of new comedy faces come through its doors. Some survived to make it through to the Raw Comedy Quest Finals, and have continued to perform, establishing full time or part time careers on the local comedy scene.

Previous winners have included ‘That Indian Guy’ - TARUN MOHANBHAI, 2006 Billy T Comedy Award winner, CORI GONZALEZ-MACUER and 2007 Billy T Comedy Award Nominee, GRANT LOBBAN – THE TICKET GUY.

The mic is now ready to be passed again this year to a new breed of comedians. New Zealand’s premier new face comedy competition welcomes anybody who thinks that they are funny. Now is your chance to make a stand, earn ‘tens of dollars’ and stake your claim to a little bit of comedy glory.

The current season of Raw Comedy warm-ups up during March 07, with official heats for the Quest throughout the end of March and beginning of April. Semi-finals will be held on Sun 20 and Sun 27 May at The Classic with the Grand Final on Sun 4 May.

All you need to ‘do it yourself’ is 5 minutes of original comedy and the will to overcome mankind’s greatest fear – public speaking with the added expectation of being funny.

New Faces call Nigel Grant on 09 373 4321 to register.


Heats - Monday 24 and 31 March, 7 and 14 April at 8.00pm

Semifinal - Sunday April 20 and 27 at 7.00pm

Final - Sunday 4 May at 7.00pm
