Wellington's Annual Awards for Live Comedy
You are invited to The Wellies - a gala night celebrating the live stand-up comedy industry in Wellington city. In its second year running this is a night of performance, laughter and awards that celebrate the past, present and future of the scene.
The evening will begin with a performance from the hottest new talent on the books, a chance to check out the up and comers who will be the faces of the future of Wellington comedy. It will then be followed by a blast from the not-so-distant-past, with the winners of last year’s Wellies bringing their best banter to the stage. The night will be rounded off by an awards ceremony, acknowledging the current successes and achievements of the city’s top comedians and producers.
The live comedy scene in Wellington is growing rapidly with a sought after standard of performance. Local comics are writing for TV shows in Auckland as well as opening for international performers. Wellington has provided the first place winners for the National Raw Comedy Quest two years running. The awards celebrate all of this regional excellence. They are peer voted by the local comedy community and acknowledge the best, brightest and funniest talent operating in Wellington city.
Hosted at VK’s Comedy and Blues bars, the only local dedicated performance venue for comedy, and organised by the Humorous Arts Trust. This is a chance to put on your sparkliest smiles and your sparkliest shoes to spend a night celebrating all that is laughter in Wellington City.
