DIY Comedy is the production company of Feilding based comedian Ben 'Tito' Caldwell.
Having moved to the Manawatū in 2016, he began running workshops for locals with an interest in comedy or looking to get into the world of stand up. Along with some other Manawatū comedians, he founded The Comedy Hub and was the first Chairperson of the oganisation, as well as their primary producer.
In 2019, he decided to branch out on his own and set up DIY Comedy. The aim being to bring high quality comedy to the Lower and Central North Islands, whilst also developing local comedians and providing them with professional opportunities.
In its first year of operating, DIY Comedy ran 18 shows, including the highly successful Raw Comedy Quest and covered the width of the Central North Island from New Plymouth to Gisborne.
2021 is shaping up to be a bigger year, possibly a better one too and if 2020 is the measuring stick, then it will be epic!
