Kaupapa | About

The best up and coming comics from around NZ, hosted by 2023 Billy T winner Abbey Howells!

It’s Spring! 

Lambs are being born, birds are chirping, and the best new comedians in Aotearoa are coming out of their burrows in their quest to become a 2024 Billy T Nominee! 

Hosted by 2023 Billy T Winner Abby Howells, the showcase will feature a bushel of the best up and coming comics from round the motu, plus it’s $15. That’s like a dollar a comic! Don’t miss your chance to be there and witness them bloom!

Yes we know they were coming out of their burrows and now they are blooming. We grew up in the city and we’re in Auckland. We don’t know what happens in spring. What is sun?

Proceeds from this event will support the New Zealand Comedy Trust, producers of the NZ International Comedy Festival, and continue their work supporting the development of the local comedy industry.
