Eli Matthewson

As seen on 7 Days, Have You Been Paying Attention, and Dancing with the Stars, Eli Matthewson's recent Edinburgh Festival debut earned him five-star reviews and several sell-out shows. He has been twice nominated for the Billy T Award and in 2021 was the winner of the prestigious Fred Award.

Cori Gonzalez-Macuer

7 Days regular and star of What We Do In The Shadows, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer has been performing his unique brand of self-deprecating observational and deadpan comedy since 2003.

In that time he's won the Billy T James Award, appeared on film and television, and performed in Australia, America, England, Scotland, Singapore and as far as the Middle East and South America, as well as appearing in Wellington Paranormal and the NZ Comedy Gala.

Lesa Macleod-Whiting

Lesa is a Wellington-based writer, improviser and comedian. She has been a regular on the Wellington improv scene since 2016 and began doing stand-up in July 2020, going on to nab the Runner Up spot at the Wellington Raw Comedy Quest. She has a penchant for characters, accents and fast-paced silliness.

Winner - Best Newcomer - 2020 Wellington Comedy Awards
