New Zealand International Comedy Festival

The festival


The NZ International Comedy Festival is a highlight on the entertainment calendar. Its broad mainstream appeal has been demonstrated by consistently high audience attendance since it’s inception in 1993.

Held simultaneously over three weeks in Auckland and Wellington during April & May each year, the Festival then takes to the road with the Comedy Convoy, touring to regional cities across New Zealand.

With an average ticket price of just over $26, the Festival is not only a hugely popular event, but also an extremely accessible one. With comedy performances ranging from stand up, sketch, improv, theatre, children’s and musical comedy we aim to provide something for everyone to laugh at.
