Raw Comedy Quest Winner 2004 Jerome Chandrahasen and local talent Mutts Paku will be bringing their contrasting comedic styles together for the first time to create Civilized.

In an hour of clean stand up and sketches they will be entertaining audiences with their distinctive angles on New Zealand, language and nonsense. They have performed comedy locally and nationally in front of audiences that have ranged from 300+ to two punters and a dog.
