Love a L8 Show on the weekend

Every Friday at 10pm its the Late-ful Eight! Eight comedians - Pro's busting out fresh ideas, rising stars and next big things - all in one big show. The ideal weekend alternative particularly when that 7:30 Show sells out.

The Classic Studio (Upstairs on the 1st Floor)

6:00 p.m. at The Classic Studio (Upstairs on the 1st Floor)

The first rule of book (fight) club is you don’t talk about book (fight) club…unless you use proper punctuation and grammar.

The Classic presents

El Jaguar's Book (Fight) Club
5 shows only / Upstairs in The Classic Studio (1st fl) 321 Queen St

Not your ordinary book club.

Former WWF masked wrestler El Jaguar returns to the NZICF with El Jaguar Book (Fight) Club.

Just like the title suggests, 8 randomly chosen (audience suggested) books enter the literati ThunderDome, and 1book leaves. It's like Highlander, but with books.

"....a great and experienced improvisor." Chortle

"...a rip roaring show of immense proportions....fearless comedy..." Theatreview
