Hard Cases is a weekly open mic, held downstairs at S&Ms, where local comics (and guests, when they're in town) come to test out new material, have a few drinks and just generally be hilarious. Hard Cases is built on the idea of giving anyone and everyone a chance to jump up and give it a go.

We have a different host up every night guiding you through the fun and we've had some superstars of comedy drop by to test new sets. You just never know what's going to happen at Hard Cases. 7pm is showtime so make sure you're settled in with a drink in hand for some big laughs!

When the show is all wrapped up, stick around and sing some karaoke upstairs with the comics and the best karaoke hosts in Wellington to finish off a perfect Thursday.

Show is koha. If you had a good time, then let us know with a donation.

The hosts this month:

February 2nd is co-hosted by JB Malthus & Severin Gourley.

*With his Winston Churchill-good looks and nerdy boy next door charm, JB Malthus is making small waves in the Wellington comedy scene. Ripples, really. A past performer at Short and Sweet festival, Fresh Bananas, and Blindset, he has been described as "humorous" and "on stage."

February 9th is hosted by Julz Burgisser.
*Get ready for some sass as Julz Burgisser hits the stage. She brings a quirky dark style to her sets. Keen to mock herself, she makes you laugh at life in all its challenges for single females in their 30's.

"Her witty outlook on her 30 something single/divorced life, made us laugh at the trials and tribulations of being a singleton in Wellington." - Art Murmurs
