25 Shows Celebrating 25 Years

Comedy Festival First Release:
25 Shows Celebrating 25 Years

This April, the NZ International Comedy Festival powered by Flick Electric Co hits a quarter century, and it looks as though we’ve never needed comedy more. As others are closing borders, we are opening our arms to performers from all over the world. Here they are welcome to share with us their perspectives and observations whilst making us laugh. The laughing bit is super important.

So, here’s the first installment of 25 of them. Why 25? Because we’re 25, that’s the only real reason. It was fairly arbitrary. They’re not even in any particular order, as that’s like telling people which kid is your favourite.
