Tevita Manukia:
Sent here for schooling at 8 years old, Tevita grew up in a God fearing household that also happened to be a safe house for Tongan overstayers. Its in this environment his unique and very funny sense of humor was developed.
Voted Most Improved Comedian in 2010 by NZ Comedy Guild

PAX:
Hailed as the funniest Half Iranian half Pakistani comedian in New Zealand. Pax grew up in the land of the long white cloud, making his way through life as a brown and hairy young man in a mostly white and hairless world with the gift and/or mental illness of humour.
A finalist at the 2011 Raw Comedy quest and a regular all over the Auckland comedy circuit.
"Funny, charming but a little bit too racist." - His wife

Jamaine Ross
Jamaine is a born & bred Christchurchian who moved to Auckland in 2003. A move which has earned him the esteemed label of 'JAFA' among his hometown 'friends'. A label which doesn't bother him at all so he doesn't know why they always go on about it.
He first tried his hand at stand up comedy in 2009 at The Classic and entered the Raw Comedy Quest the following year where he was knocked out in the semi finals (probably due to his lack of facial hair but that's just speculation).
For 2 years he kept a low profile on the stand up scene, spending some of that time working with 2012 Billy T Award winner Guy Williams on TV3's The Jono Project, but most of the time growing a beard.
In 2012, he entered the Raw Comedy Quest again, and despite his mediocre looks, was able to win the whole thing by unanimous decision.
His comedy can best be described as 'indescribable' (Jamaine Ross) and 'funny' (Jamaine Ross). 7 Days star, Paul Ego also said something nice about him but he can't remember what it was.
"Jamaine Ross was brilliantly funny and performed some fantastically confident and smart material that proved him to be a star of the future." - Ingrid Grenar (creativesidekicking.com)

Anthony Wilson:
Anthony joined the comedy scene in early 2010 and since then has been gigging with the best of them. His unique, alternative, often risque style, mixed with a dark charisma and a mop-headed figure makes him a completely new type of performance to see. The sheer delivery of one-liners, seamlessly intertwined with stories, both true and those that he wishes were, makes him a lung-bursting laugh-out-loud comic.
"No one should be that good and that funny, that young. But he is."
"The riskiest young comedian in NZ"-Brendhan Lovegrove
"Anthony Wilson is definitely a talented comedian with a lot of potential." - The Dominion Post

David Oakes:
Originally from the North East of Scotland, David is a regular performer at the Classic Comedy Club in Auckland and the Auckland Comedy scene organizing and promoting comedy nights through his events company, “Comedy Capers”. A semi-finalist in the 2012 RAW comedy Quest and 2012 nz comedy guild best industry friend nominee, David is a clever witted story teller with a slightly warped view on life.
"Very Scottish and Very funny" - Brendhan Lovegrove (2011 NZ best male comedian)

This is sure to sell out so get in quick!
