There can be only one!
And a ‘runner up’.
Oh, and maybe some ‘highly commended’s’.

Who will stand-up and stake their claim for the title of the ‘funniest new face of the year’ decided in front of a panel of expert judges on Sat 16 May at the Q Theatre, 305 Queen St in Auckland?

Launched in 1995, the Raw Comedy Quest is New Zealand’s biggest comedy competition, with $2000 in prize money, the glory and promises of further work as a professional comedian to be won.

Since it began 20 years ago hundreds of Kiwi’s have made a stand at the Raw Comedy Quest, a highlight of the annual New Zealand International Comedy Festival. Some have gone on to enjoy continued success as part time and full time performers. Many others have discovered that all they are good for is a few jokes at the office party. But most importantly all of them have faced humankind’s greatest fear – ‘Public Speaking’, with the added expectation of being funny.

The heats for the 2015 Raw Comedy Quest kick off at The Classic on Mon March 2nd for 8 weeks, followed by semi-finals during the festival on Mon 27 April and Mon 4 May.

The Grand Final featuring up to 7 competitors from Auckland plus 2 from the Wellington and 1 from the Christchurch regional finals , kicks off at 9pm on Sat 16 May in the Rangatira room @ Q Theatre, 305 Queen St.
