Saturday Laughs with Tom Sainsbury

Whats On

Saturday Laughs is a two hour comedy showcase with some of the country's favourite performers.

MC'd by Justine Smith, this Christchurch girl made good, now residing in West Auckland, there’s not a lot that gets past Justine. If you were to try and define Justine as a lover or a fighter, you'd have to say both. She is capable of tearing strips off people on stage, and then buying them a drink after the show.

Justine has previously won the 'Billy T Award' in 2003 and the NZ Comedy Guild 'Best Female Comedian' in 2008. A popular Comedy Festival performer, her solo shows: 'The Justine Smith Hour', 'Return Of The Jussi' and 'Jussi Town' have garnered critical acclaim.

Justine has been performing around New Zealand for blimmin’ ages.
