BEST SHOW CONCEPT
An award to honour fresh and brave ideas regardless of commercial success. The NZ show (either in or outside the Festival) that was based on a really good idea that was gutsy and broke new comedy ground. This isn't about ticket sales or reviews, it's about a bloody good comedy idea.

Nick Rado - The Funniest Joke in the World

BEST SHOW

Your favourite kiwi comedy "show" (as in a specific event, rather than a normal showcase) this year, either during the Festival or at any other time.

Michele A'Court - Stuff I Forgot to Tell My Daughter

Justine Smith
