Hated it, comedian were crude and rude. Dirty atmosphere, dirty place full of drunks. You obviously had to have a NZ sense of humor or you did not get the jokes. I am sure all New Zealanders are not so crude, I certainly hope not and the language was totally unnecessary. Surely you can be funny without using the "f"... More

Now in its 20th year, the Classic is NZ's comedy equivalent of the Improv in LA or the once Holy City Zoo comedy club in San Francisco. (early days of RW standup before Mork n' Mindy.) All of NZ's greatest jokesters and joke-tellers have graced the Classic stage as well as international comedians on tour. Hopefully, the Classic will continue... More

Had a great night out at the Comedy Club on a Wednesday night, ten great amateurs or more experienced trying on new material. Went in with low expectations and was kept laughing for two hours. Great entertainment for only $15.

Stopped in last week. It's a great little place and worth a visit if you want a bit of fun. As with all comedy, you will have your favourites or not as the case may be. But for $ 20 bucks and a few beers, it was great. You should book, it was full. Enjoy.

A nice ambience in the hotspot cabaret. Went Saturday 21 May. Performances were fairly ordinary. I guess you get what you pay for at $19 each. Wouldn't rush back.
