Backbeat Comedy is Auckland's greatest monthly line up show of hot local talent, exciting unannounced drop-ins and an unbeatable start to your weekend.

This week we have:
Alice Snedden
Head writer on Jono and Ben and Funny Girls and a 2016 RAW finalist. Alice's debut comedy festival show was awarded 5 stars and got her nominated for Best Newcomer. The Spinoff raved "Snedden kills her first hour."

James Roque
The Filipino-Kiwi who you'll recognise from the telly (7Days, Jono and Ben, AotearoHa), James is a honed millennial stand up comic with razor sharp insights and deadly timing. He's also one-third of the comedy trio that achieved viral success, Frickin' Dangerous Bro.

Lana Walters
One of the most exciting emerging acts on the New Zealand scene, Lana made the Grand Final of the RAW Comedy Quest 2016 and continues to get the biggest laughs on whatever show she features in. One to watch!

Melanie Bracewell
She's one of the best bits of The Project (Three) and familiar to any Radio Hauraki listener - Melanie Bracewell is quickly becoming a household name in NZ and for good reason - she's very bloody funny! She's a previous RAW winner and is well-known internationally for her incredible comedy social presence (200k+ followers on Tumblr can't be wrong).

Tim Batt (MC)
Host of TVNZ’s Banter, co-host of international smash podcast The Worst Idea of All Time and two-time Billy T nominee. According to Stuff.co.nz “He's clever and he's got something to say.”
