Best Foods Comedy Gala drops stellar lineup for 2020

Prepare to enter a new decade of laughs as the Best Foods Comedy Gala bounces back with blockbuster nights of comedy from April through to May! The comedic feast is set to bring another star-studded bill of acclaimed comics to Auckland's Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre - Aotea Centre and Wellington's The Opera House.

The annual night of hilarity is hosted by acclaimed Australian comic, Felicity Ward. Last in Aotearoa for the 2016 Comedy Fest (where she won Best International Show), 'The Guilty Feminist' co-host makes a welcome return to our shores. She is set to bring her exuberant style and razor-sharp wit to lead a stacked lineup of talent from across the globe. Her stellar style will make sure you laugh, giggle, snort and snigger yourself through two and a half hours of the finest live comedy around!

First on the list of 2020 performers is Kiwi prop comic, Tape Face. He is returning home after wowing the world on 'America's Got Talent' and 'Britain's Got Talent: The Champions' with his enchanting character comedy that transcends the barriers of language and culture. Also included on the lineup is everyone's favourite performer Paul Sinha—he's back after falling in love with Aotearoa during his month-long visit for the Comedy Fest last year.

Aucklanders will be treated to sets from more 2019 fest favourites—stone-cold killer Aaron Chen comes bearing his new Director's Choice Award-winning set from 2019's Melbourne International Comedy Festival while local powerhouse-pop-duo Two Hearts (Laura Daniel and Joseph Moore) bring the house down with their original hits dripping in satire and irony.

Meanwhile, Wellington fans will see wildly popular Kiwi duo The Fan Brigade bring their critically-acclaimed musical comedy to serve sizzling hot takes to the Opera House. Joining them is award-winning Brit icon Josie Long who's making her long-awaited NZ return, having spent her recent years making a name for herself on radio and TV across the UK.

Laugh your heads off as you witness various acts from the world's wittiest standups, live this fall!
