Funny Furry Fierce 2018

Bear New Zealand Week Comedy Night

Thursday 8 February, 8pm

The Classic Comedy Club  321 Queen Street, Auckland City

An evening of laugh-out-loud hilarity at The Classic Comedy Club, hosted by TV funnyman Rhys Mathewson from The Project.

‘The Capital’s Funniest Bear’, Neil Thornton has gathered together a wild bunch of fresh comic talent, with well-established LGBT+ and LGBT-friendly comedians, to showcase the best of New Zealand comedy.

The youngest ever winner of the coveted Billy T Comedy Award, Rhys Mathewson’s energy and youthful take on complex issues have made him a comedic force, both locally and internationally. His charm, self-deprecating humour and wonderful story-telling talents, combined with physical presence and perfectly delivered one-liners, make him a joy to watch.

Rhys returns to the Funny Furry Fierce line-up this year as our host! Will he get his top off again?

Back for the 4th year running, Bear New Zealand Week’s Comedy Night has become a firm favourite and standout comedy event on the Auckland Pride calendar. Booking early is recommended!
