Classic Comedy

Auckland is a beautiful city.  The thing about Auckland though is that it rains.  A lot.  So what is there to do on a rainy day?

Last weekend we went to The Classic Mocktober Labour Weekend New Pro Showcase.  The Classic comedy club is celebrating it's 20th birthday and has events throughout 'MOCKtober'.  The club is located on upper Queen Street in central Auckland and is laid out in an intimate cabaret style of stand up comedy clubs in the US.

The New Pro Showcase featured ten comedians who have recently graduated from amateur to pro and over a two hour slot we were treated to a diverse and hilarious show.  Hosted by the Fan Brigade who took the traditional Kiwi RSA club and turned it into the funniest song ever, the line-up included Ruby Esther, the winner of the 2017 Raw Comedy Quest in May 2017 among many talented others.

So the next time it rains, cheer yourselves up by going down to The Classic.
