Raw Meat comedy: Fresh comedy returns to the capital

Fresh comedy returns to the capital

Raw Meat comedy is back!
From Monday 13th January Humorous Arts brings live comedy back to Wellington City, performed at the Fringe Bar and presented by a changing line up of talented MCs.

Raw Meat comedy is a weekly open mic stand up comedy show with eight comedians performing 6 minute spots.

Humorous Arts trustee and fellow performer Jerome Chandrahasen says Raw Meat Monday has been a great way for people to discover comedy.

“So many people don’t even know comedy’s happening. It’s great to see all sorts of people walk into the Fringe Bar on a Monday night for a quiet drink and then leave in hysterics.”

“People will often bring their partners or a group of friends along the next week. It’s exciting watching comedy grow, and it’s great when punters enjoy the show so much they jump up on stage to give it a go the following week”

Raw Meat Monday offers the opportunity for members of the public to perform in a 6 minute ‘open spot’ that is offered in each show. It’s the first stepping stone for people wanting to give stand up comedy a go.

The open spot is what gave now professional comedians such as Wellington Raw Comedy Quest winner Nik Bruce-Smith and Canadian Rob Harris the chance to break into the Wellington comedy scene.

“Being a lawyer, at this time last year I would never have imagined myself doing paid comedy shows, but I jumped up on Raw Meat Monday tested out what I thought was funny and here I am. I think I’ve participated in a total of 35 shows since the start of last year, and to be honest if Raw Meat didn’t exist I probably wouldn’t have started comedy at all.” says Nick Bruce-Smith.

The Humorous Arts Trust is a charity established in 2010 with the aim of spreading and growing the art of standup comedy throughout the Wellington Region.
