For Comedians


For every show we attempt to book at least nine comedians and the MC. In addition we accept sign-ups on the night from people with no or almost no comedy experience.

Information for experienced comedians.

Information for new or almost new comedians.

Shows start at 6:30 sharp. Call time 6:15, If you’re going to arrive after 6:15, please let us know. We lose the light at sunset so we really need to keep to time.

Several days before the show we create a Facebook messenger group for each show. If you’re expecting to be in a show and aren’t added to one by the Friday before the show please message Julia to check.

If the weather is expected to be fine, the shows are in Potters Park, Corner of Dominion & Balmoral Roads. We will be at or as near as possible to the band rotunda close to the corner. If rain is expected, depending on how bad it is predicted to be, we will either be in Tahaki Reserve on Mt Eden Rd or the Cricket Pavilion in Auckland Domain. If the weather is predicted to be very bad, we will cancel. An announcement will be made in the messenger group at approximately 4 PM on the day of the show.

Please share the event to your Social Media comedy pages.

If anyone needs an escort to or from their car, let us know.

If you need to get a message to Julia or Tessa on the night of the show, e.g. running late or can’t come please post that here rather than by private message as we are often not carrying our phones during set-up and show time.

It is highly recommended that you stay at least 1 metre from people from outside your bubble. It is also recommended that you wear a mask when you are not performing. Please note that we recommend and don’t require these actions.

We will provide wireless & wired mics & stands as well as hand sanitiser & sanitising wipes for your use. A bin for disposing used wet wipes will be at the same place. If you don’t feel comfortable using our mic, you are welcome to either use your own or just talk loudly. We will have a speaker that accepts mics on a 6.3 mm (¼ inch) jack plug and our mic cable fits a standard XLR (3 pin) mic plug at the mic end and has a 6.3 mm plug at the other.
