Clayton Carrick-Leslie arrived on the stand-up scene in 2006 and is fast becoming one of the country's most exciting emerging professional comedians.
2010 was a strong year for Carrick-Leslie, collecting nominations for the prestigious Billy T Award and for "Best Show" at the 2010 New Zealand Comedy Guild Awards for his 2010 Comedy Festival one-man show "Bring It". Clayts' television air time ramped up in 2010 also, appearing alongside NZ comedy household names on TV3s "7 Days" & "AotearoHA", and TV2s "Great Christmas Comedy Gala."
Joseph Moore is a newish comedian from New Zealand and his main interests are hummus, insects and Kanye West. He is a writer for "7 Days" and "Jono and Ben at Ten" and is nominated for the 2013 Billy T James Award.
Former Radio Hauraki Morning Pirate Aaron Ironside is back on the NZ Comedy scene after first trying his hand at stand up 15 years ago.
Aaron is happily married with three kids, and house full of dogs, cats, guinea pigs and chickens- he's just happy to be out of the house once and a while!
Hopefully this mid-life comedy crisis will be the start of a new chapter in his already colourful life."
Sophia is an actress best know for her perfomace as Loren Fitspatrick on Shortland Street. New to the comedy scene she is making waves with her unique unassuming style.
He's not crude. He's no clown. Terry Williams is a clever, business-savvy satirist & comedian. Terry is equally at home performing in clubs as he is at upmarket conferences and corporate events throughout Australasia. Terry’s show in the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival is ‘The Grin Reaper.’

“Sharp, original comedy.” - Dominion Post

He won the Comedy Raw 2011 after only 3 gigs on stage. Born to be funny with great stage presence and a big future in stand-up comedy. 2012 brought a lot to Mo Kheir garnering him over half a dozen pieces in magazines, newspapers, blogs and television from such publications & channels as Remix magazine, The NZ Herald, Viva, Urbis, FOUR and more. With such an exponential growth in the industry in such a short time Mo Kheir has geared up for 2013 and looks forward to what it will bring.

Originally from Russia, Paul 'The Soviet' Roukchan is a multiple NZCG Award Nominee with five years of comedy experience under his belt.
Paul 'The Soviet' Roukchan has performed in Australia as well as up and down NZ, and appeared on Eating Media Lunch.
This jumpy Russian may project the insouciant demeanour of a confused child - but that's just camouflage, allowing him to spin some very funny stories without drawing attention to how it's done.
