Welcome to The Classic - NZ's World class 'Home of Live Comedy' for over 25 years.
And our happy place
Every Friday and Saturday night at 7:30pm it's the main event of the week featuring our favourite headliners, along with the rising stars and the pick of our new faces. There is a fresh line-up every week which you can check the details of on our website if they are not already listed here.
These shows are regularly selling out in advance or have limited door sales - but we recommend our L8 Show at 10pm as an alternative.
Look who's talking in December;
Fri 22 Dec : Classic Xmas Wrap / Comedy Showcase with MC Alan McElroy, Vaughan King, John Carr, Ben MacGougan & Guests.
Fri 29 & Sat 30 Dec : The LAST LAUGHS of 2023 (See separate listing)
We're back in 2024 on Fri 5 & Sat 6 January.
The Classic is a world-class comedy club, according to all our international friends and customers. Fully licensed and seated cabaret-style with a full range of beverages and a snack menu.
This is the ideal night out for family, friends, the social network or your workmates or office party.
