Backbeat Comedy

Backbeat Comedy is back for 2018!

Featuring New Zealand's best comedians and unannounced special guests, it's the best gig in town to catch the funniest kiwis around.

This month featuring James Roque, Lana Walters, Eli Matthewson, Paul Douglas, Tim Batt and more!

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 razer 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!

Eli Matthewson:
The self-described "gay comedian with the arms" is at the peak of his powers. Eli's a multi-award winning comedian, TV talent and hilarious podcaster (The Male Gayz). Stuff.co.nz called him a "must see" and The NZ Herald says he "nails every punchline".

Paul Douglas: Winner of the Breakthrough Comedian award at 2016 Comedy Guild Awards and had Comedy Out West "doubled over with laughter". Paul's a Hamilton-raised born story teller with a heart of gold and brilliant comedy mind.

Tim Batt (MC) is a multi-award nominee and winner for his stand up and is one half to the international hit podcast The Worst Idea of All Time. He has honed his stand up skills performing across NZ, Melbourne, Sydney, New York City and Los Angeles.
