Clean Comedy NZ presents Just Comedy. Part of the 2011 NZ International Comedy Festival.

It's not just about comedy. Why did the chicken cross the road? Because you went to a comedy show!

Join three of Australasia’s top clean comedians for the festival’s premier all ages family-friendly comedy event. But it’s not just about the laughs. $5 from every ticket will be donated to World Vision’s Smiles campaign, so you’ll not only be a part of a great night of top entertainment but you’ll also be sharing smiles around the world as you help fund chickens, goats, ducks and more.

“I’ve been involved with festival shows for years now and we’ve really built a good following,” says Dave Wiggins the show’s host. “I wanted to honour the people who have come to my shows by giving them something new this year. So I’ve decided to do two things. Bring over some great clean comics with fresh material and also find a way to make the show about more than just jokes and I think we’ve done it.”

Just Comedy is of course about more than just comedy. “The title is a play on the word justice,” explains Wiggins. “The show is not just about us having a laugh. It’s also about recognising that there are people in the world who are suffering from injustice but instead of feeling sad about it, this is a celebration of the hope that we can do something to make a difference. I’m excited about the idea of creating smiles here through our comedy and then sharing them around the world through giving back.”

But just because you’re giving to charity it doesn’t mean your getting a bad deal. Hosted by NZ’s top clean comedian Dave Wiggins the show will feature direct from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Adelaide’s Jason Pestel (Winner of Adelaide Comedy People’s Choice 2009) & Melbourne’s Michael Connell (“Stand up Prodigy…” – The Canberra Times). Don’t miss this unique event which will have you laughing on the outside and feeling good on the inside.
