There is something about the way Justine Smith is able to deliver a line with a flicker of the eyes that has been tearing up crowds for more than ten years. The Christchurch girl made good, Justine now lives in Auckland but at least its out west. She has won the Billy T Award in 2003 and the NZ Comedy Guild Best Female Comedian. Her solo shows, The Justine Smith Hour, Return Of The Jussi and Jussi Town have garnered critical acclaim and she is recognised for her appearances on the Comedy Gala, the AotearoHA series and as host of TV3s Divas.
If you were to try and define Justine as a lover or a fighter, youd have to say both. She is capable of tearing stirps off people on stage, and then buy them a drink after the show. A leading light of New Zealand Comedy, Justine is just as comfortable in a theatre or a local bar in the country. Simply one of our best.
