Fresh faces from the 2017 Raw Comedy Quest

 2018 NZ International Comedy Festival

Ruby Esther & Maia Smith: Fully Grown Children

Ruby Esther (2017 RAW Comedy Quest Winner) and Maia Smith (Semi- finalist in 2017 RAW Comedy Quest) are fresh out of their childhood and desperately trying to claw their way back into it.

This hour-long show is 100% about themselves and their total lack of life experience explored through a mix of musician-free music and tales of their awkward antics.

"If these aspiring teens are anything to go by, the future of New Zealand's comedy scene is in good hands." - Theatreview
