Nice that 100% proceeds go to Nepal via the Oxfam Earthquake Relief Fund.

The New Zealand Comedy Trust and Q Theatre are putting on Comedy for Nepal - a fundraising showcase with proceeds going directly to Oxfam NZ's Nepal Earthquake Response.
The worst earthquake in 80 years ha s hit Nepal: buildings are flattened, thousands are injured, the death toll has exceeded 8000 and is rising every day. At this stage survivors are in a race against time to secure shelter and
adequate sanitation before the monsoon rains begin in early June.
Oxfam New Zealand is there, delivering clean water, toilets, hygiene kits, food and shelter to thousands. The agency has been in Nepal for over 20 years and knows the community well.
The NZ International Comedy Festival has an incredible bunch of comedians, staff, venues and supporters that all wanted to contribute to
Oxfam New Zealand's relief efforts in Nepal. It turns out what we can do is put on an awesome comedy show to raise money to support the Nepal Earthquake Response.
So please join us for a night of stand-up at Comedy For Nepal!
Performers on the night include: Jeremy Corbett, Wilson Dixon, (USA), Paul Ego, Ben Hurley, Justine Smith, Jarred Fell, Eddy Brimson & Rich Wilson (UK), Harley Breen (AUS), Tom Furniss, and more comedians to be announced.
Tickets are just $35 or groups 10+ are $30 each, with no booking fee.
100% of proceeds from ticket sales go to the Oxfam Earthquake Relief Fund.
