Achilles New Zealand exists to provide people with any type of disability the opportunity to participate alongside able-bodied athletes in mainstream running events.
Join us for a fun Comedy Night evening to raise funds for the Achilles NZ team going to the 2015 New York Marathon.

Achilles NZ will have exclusive use of ‘The Classic’ on Queen St for a two hour comedy showcase featuring 4-5 of New Zealand’s best pro comedians on Thursday evening, 01 October.
The bar is open from 6.30pm, with bar snacks available (sushi, pizza, antipasto and more), and the show is expected to start at around 7.45pm.

Every Thursday at The Classic, NZ's home of live comedy, it is Pro Night - the original live comedy night that launched stand-up comedy in NZ over 20 years ago and it’s still the best night to see a combination of established headline acts along with rising stars and promising new faces.
So you can expect to laugh yourself silly – all in aid of raising funds for Achilles.

The Classic Comedy & Bar is located in the heart of Auckland`s entertainment precinct at 321 Queen St, just up from the Town Hall with easy parking available in the Civic Car Park under Aotea Square.

Please note: The premises are licensed and subject to all NZ liquor laws. Minimum age is 14 years and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. There is a strict NO BYO Alcohol policy.

And there will be a quick fire auction so come ready to bid on some great items. More details to follow...

Update: Three of our five professional comedians are now confirmed. The are:
Jamie Bowen - who is manic, relentless and above all else, funny.
Justine Smith - There's something about the way Justine delivers a line with just a flicker of her eyes that has been tearing up crowds for more than ten years.
James Nokise - NZ's favourite Samoan/Welsh stand-up comic. Voted 'Best Male Comedian' and 'Most Improved Comedian' in the 2013 NZ Comedy Guild Awards.
