It’s an age-old question in comedy – how do performers manage to hone their works before embarking on their seasons during the NZ International Comedy Festival? Like fixing Rachel Hunter’s split ends, it doesn’t happen overnight.
 
So in the name of exploring comedy frontiers, comedians performing as part of the 2014 Festival will test their works on human guinea pigs with the all-new Comedy Lab. This is a chance for audiences to get a sneak peek into how the beast is formed.
 
For the comics, it’s a chance to test what flies and what dies on live humans that aren’t their flatmates (that’s you, faithful comedy fan).
 
LAB WORKER REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE:
An ability to laugh, finely tuned comedy ears, an enjoyment of comedic dissection, Bunsen Burner safety knowledge and basic writing skills that result in legible feedback to the jokesters themselves.

No cute and fluffy animals will be harmed for scientific reasons.
Audiences on the other hand…

And a NOW an additional Comedy Lab at The Basement Studio!
