Fan Brigade

A musical comedy duo taking New Zealand comedy by storm

Director's Choice at the 2018 NZ International Comedy Festival

The Fan Brigade is a musical comedy duo taking New Zealand comedy by storm.

Their fast rise and reliably hilarious performances led to a sold out season of their award-winning 2016 show Ask the Fan Brigade. This was followed by another sold-out season in 2017 with Don’t Ask the Fan Brigade.
They were a hit sensation as part of the “best of the fest” NZ-wide tour, the Best Foods Mayo Best Comedy Show on Earth, and can be found ripping the sh*t out of their enemies on a comedy stage near you.

As seen on TV: The Project, NZ Comedy Gala, AotearoHA, 7 Days.
