Gong: A new show

We’re not crossing Auckland’s borders for a holiday and we’re not stopping our comedy shows, instead we’re adding a new show “Gong“. Ten, count them, ten comedy shows this month. January continues our series of comedy in Potters Park, Oro Glen Eden returns and there will be a gig at Oro’s new Onehunga branch. Mr Wang’ doesn’t seem to be opening soon so we’ll just move their gig to Potters Park.


Every Thursday from 6:30 starting 13 January.

Fast and furious open mic comedy where the comedians fight to avoid being gonged off by 4 randomly selected audience members.

Think of it as comedy as a blood sport. Hilarious fun is expected. Event Link.

Performers can sign-up here.

We’re Back

After 8 long weeks, live comedy returns to New Zealand and we will be there to entertain you.

The Covid-19 response closed all bars and clubs in New Zealand between late March 2020 & ⅔ of the way through May. Including us.

We’ve been doing live streamed comedy on the Internet during the downtime but we are so looking forward to performing in a real bar & with a tiny bit of luck we’ll be on stage at Mr Wang’ bar, 250 Dominion Road 7:30 PM on 8 June. Event details.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
