UPDATE: The Classic is unaffected by the weather and all shows will proceed this weekend.

Welcome to The Classic, NZ's home of live comedy, kicking off a brand New Year of Live Comedy.

Late & Live every Saturday night, from Jan 7th at 10pm the mic is open to all-comers keen to have a go at stand-up comedy. All you need is up to 6 minutes of your own original live comedy. Anything goes - stand-up, music, sketch, mime, magic ...anything you find funny.

Our guest Pro MC introduces up to 10 open mic rookies each week in a 90- minute frenzy of raw comedy.

Just one final gig in our Summer Raw season this coming Sat April 29 before we take a short break across the 2023 NZ International Comedy Festival. On Saturday nights at 10pm on May 13,20 & 27 we have the Classic Comedy Fest All-Stars L8 Edition featuring the stars of the Fest (see separate listing).

We will be back with the L8 Raw Open Mic on Sat June 3rd when we kick off the Heats for the 2023 Raw Comedy Quest - our annual search for the Funniest New Comedian of the Year.
