World-class improvised comedy

The Covert is NZ's hot house of improvised comedy. They'll be performing a different show every night - Rookie Improv on Tuesday, Ferris Wheel on Wednesday, Revolver on Thursday, Coconut Mojitos on Friday and Jester on Saturday. The spontaneous comedy is clever and refreshing and you'll love it!

We can't tell you the plot as that will unfold before your very eyes but we can tell you that if you like your comedy a bit more sophisticated then you won't want to miss this show. And if you do miss it; a pox on you, you lily-liver’d bull’s-pizzle. And if you grace us with your presence, may good fortune forever be yours.

8 - 12 May - 8.30pm
