Six Comics. One Mic. No Mercy.

Comedians battle it out for supremacy and you get to decide who wins. The award-winning show is back for the 2015 New Zealand International Comedy Festival, with a fresh lineup of pro comedians each night.

This fast-paced format is a twist on the classic comedy lineup show. Performers are each given a five minutes of “safe time”, before being left at the mercy of their fellow comics.

Will they be kind or will they be cruel?
