NZ vs The World

A group of actors piled on top of each other, excited and yelling

Plucky Kiwi underdogs take on the world in this feisty finale! Festival Director Jennifer O’Sullivan pits a team of local improvisors against the best of our international guests. Round by round we’ll see who’s got the goods - will Team New Zealand make it best out of three or will our international superstars humble our hometown heroes? See out our tenth anniversary festival with a heck of a bang!

She has performed, taught and directed nationally and internationally during her 15+ year career in improv, theatre, and comedy.
