2019 Acts included

  • Matt Stellingwerf is a fast rising star on the international comedy scene, and highly regarded by his peers. Matt has won four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, been nominated for several others, and was nominated as Best Newcomer at the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival. Hamilton-born and Wanganui-raised farmer's son and trained criminologist, an award-winning bar fly...and genuinely lovely guy, Matt Stellingwerf is a man of contradictions.

  • The Cotswolds Queen: Cerys Nelmes Ceyrs – a self-proclaimed ‘rough bird from the West Country’ – has taken the comedy scene by storm, with TV appearances and comedy gigs across the globe. Her observational and story-telling comedy is phenomenal. She is a leading mc on the comedy circuit, working for major UK clubs and UK charity events.

  • The Whirlwind Comedian: Steve Shanyaski  – Steve is a comedian at the top of his game. His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit, with the key to his act being his energy and silliness! He has performed his comedy throughout the world to audiences as diverse as bikers in a field to royalty in a theater – and invariably he goes down a storm!name"
