Welcome to The Classic , NZ's home of live comedy, celebrating our 25th Anniversary Year in 2022.

COVID ORANGE UPDATE : Scanning & Vaccine Passes no longer required / Masks are optional but we still offer Exclusive Tables for your bubble and maintain all our excellent Hyper-Hygiene Protocols for your comfort and Safety.

We had to reboot the 2021 Raw Comedy Quest and now we are juggling new Covid RED protocols but every Saturday night from Feb 19th to Apr 30th we will be holding the heats for the 2022 Raw Comedy Quest - our search for the funniest new comedians of the year.

So if you think you're funny, or know someone who does, then stand-up this winter and have a crack at winning $2500 in prize money, offers of further professional work at The Classic and beyond and, most importantly, the Glory! Never underestimate The Glory of being the Funniest New Rookie of the Year.
It could be the start of something huge ... or not!

All you need is up to 6 minutes of your own original comedy act. Anything goes. Stand-up, music, sketch, improv, mime, solo, duo's, trio's or troupes.
