The Best Foods Comedy Gala is back with an incredible lineup to kick off the 2021 New Zealand International Comedy Festival.

Expect big laughs from this fast-paced live show with bite-sized sets from some of Aotearoa’s comedy superstars.

Leading the lineup this year, our host is the multi award-winning Queen of NZ comedy, Justine Smith.

Joining Justine on the lineup is national treasure Ben Hurley of Have You Been Paying Attention? and 7 Days, alongside international Samoan comedy superstar, and half of the Laughing Samoan’s duo - Tofiga Fepulea'i; 2018 Fred Award Winner and online sensation Chris Parker; from TVNZ’s Taskmaster NZ and winner of the Billy T Award the awkward and always hilarious Angella Dravid.

Stay tuned for more absolute bangers to be announced soon and get in quick for tickets to this buffet of the best.

Note: Unlike other NZICF 2021 shows, the Best Foods Comedy Gala will be postponed to a later date if we are in Level 2 or above at the time of this show.

Tickets will automatically be transferred to the new show dates once they are confirmed. If you are unable to make the new date you will be able to request a full refund, including booking fee
