Boss Coffee Comedy Club tickets are on sale now!

The Boss Coffee Comedy Club: Wednesday 15 July 2020, 7PM to 10PM at Haere-roa.

BOSS Coffee presents Comedy Club, a fun-filled night out featuring some of New Zealand’s funniest comedians live in the Ngaio Marsh Theatre! The event is part of UCSA’s Re-Orientation lineup.

Public tickets (‘no mates’) are now on sale, and UC staff are very welcome.


About our lineup

James Roque: Nominated for the Fred Award for Best Show in 2019 NZ Comedy Fest.  James boasts a heap of television credits, including appearances on 7 Days.

Georgie Sivier: Winner of The South Island Raw final in her first year of comedy, Georgie’s been the the queen of sharp absurdity ever since.
