In response to the ongoing and rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, last week the NZ International Comedy Festival made the heart-breaking decision to cancel the 2020 Festival.  

We’re pleased to let you know that at this stage the Best Foods Comedy Gala has just been postponed, and the Festival team are working on arrangements to confirm new dates in both Auckland and Wellington, later in the year. 

The Comedy Fest team are incredibly grateful for your patience and support during these challenging times.

An announcement of new dates will be made in the coming weeks, but please hold on to your tickets for now as all seats will be valid for the new dates. If your circumstances now require you to ask for a refund, please contact us here.

Please take care and look after yourselves, and we’ll be there for you with some laughs when it’s safe to do so.


The Best Foods Comedy Gala returns to Auckland for another side-splitting year, launching the 2020 NZ International Comedy Festival with Best Foods Mayo with a fast-paced night of top shelf comedy.  
Leading the line-up for this year’s event is NZ’s favourite comedic export of recent years, Tape Face (NZ)The Chase’s Paul Sinha (UK) is back; the award-winning Aaron Chen (AUS) makes his Best Foods Comedy Gala debut and local powerhouse-pop-duo Two Hearts (Laura Daniel and Joseph Moore) will bring the house down with their original hits dripping in satire and irony.
The winner of Best International Show at the 2016 Comedy Fest, Felicity Ward (AUS) will return to host this stellar night of comedy at the Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre. But wait, there’s more – further acts to be announced! 
Expect an all-star line-up featuring some of the best to launch this year’s Comedy Fest, packed into two-and-a-half hours of rollicking good times.
Proceeds from the show will be invested by the NZ Comedy Trust into further development of the comedy industry.
Please note: this show is filmed for broadcast for TVNZ.
