The Raw Comedy Quest 2021 was another massive success, with over 40 entrants from around the lower and central North Island taking part in heats in Whanganui, Taranaki, Hawkes Bay and the Manawatū.

These fine people above were the finalists who lit up The Globe Theatre in Palmy on May 1. From left to right we have Jock Munro, Al Carolla, James Fulton-Cameron, Luke Glover, Curtis Lockley, Al Reid, Kajun Campbell Brooking, Amber Dryden and MC Gary Sansome. In the front wor we have Matthew Willey, Jessica Charlotte, Heather Warren and Toni Smith.

It was a tough, competitive and high quality finla, but only two could win through to the next section of the competition in Wellington. 

Kajun Cambell Brooking (right) won the heat and gains direct entry into the Wellington final, while runner up Matthew Willey gains entry into the semi finals!

Congratulations to all involved, from the acts to the volunteers and staff, and a massive thank you to the venues that hosted us and the audiences that came along. We'll see you again in 2022!
