The Classic Comedy Comeback

Attn Fans of The Classic – we need your help.

Save a seat at The Classic, for as little as $10, and help the home of live comedy come back after the Covid Crisis.

And, if you can donate the price of a seat today, we can exchange your donation for a Ticket to Laugh when we return to funny business as usual.

We have done all we can to hibernate during the crisis but costs already incurred for the, now, cancelled Comedy Festival that would have started this week combined with un-avoidable overheads plus the loss of income from our busiest month of the year has jeopardised our future.

We are not just a place of business but a community. A community of comedians including both the professionals and many rookies in training, our loyal staff, industry workers and supporters. Over 25 years The Classic has become a cornerstone of our industry. We have often fallen outside the criteria for most arts funding so the venue is very much self-made and, usually, self-supporting relying on you, the comedy goer.

Every seat you can save today with your donation will help us come back at the next level and beyond. Our leading headline comedians and rising stars are itching to get on stage with all the fresh comedy they have been creating during the lock-down.

So join us and support the Great Classic Comedy Comeback.

All donations can be made HERE through our ticketing partner, Eventfinda.

We will stay in touch so that all donations or presales can be exchanged for a Ticket to Laugh once we reopen for some funny business. This is optional if you live beyond Auckland but your donation is transferrable.
