When: September 28, 2017, 6:45 pm
Venue: Cavern Club
Address: 18 Allen Street Wellington , New Zealand (map)
Organizer: Capital Comedy Wellington (This event have been posted on Facebook first)
Hard Cases is where comedians come to test out new material or performers try stand up comedy for the first time.

This fortnightly comedy open mic night is built on the idea of giving anyone a chance to jump up and give it a go. You'll see varying degrees of performances and be part of the hugely supportive atmosphere.

We have a different host up every show guiding you through the fun and we've had some superstars of comedy drop by on the night to test new sets. You just never know what's going to happen at Hard Cases.

This show will be hosted by Alexander Sparrow.

7:00pm is showtime.

$5 tickets. Pre-sales on Eventfinda with Door sales available on the night.

Table reservations can be requested or any questions you have can be asked via messaging our Facebook page or sending us an email on:


Whether you've been doing Stand Up Comedy for ages, or whether this will be your first time, if you're keen to participate come along on the night to sign up for the show. Sign up starts at 6.45pm but make sure you’re there before then to introduce yourself to the producer of the show.

There’s a limit of 7 comedians (plus Headline) per night so there’s some sign up rules. Comics who have never been to Hard Cases before have first choice, followed by comics who are testing for big shows, then comics who didn't do the last Hard Cases, followed by everyone else. Please stick to these rules on sign up to ensure it's fair for all and the audience gets the best show possible each night.

Come along and watch one and meet the team first if you're nervous. We'll help you to get up on stage and have a good time.

*Set lengths* are 5 minutes - you will get a light at 4 mins from our host to let you know you should be wrapping up shortly. If you go over time you will be cut off, so stick to your allocated time.

We always have a Headline 10 minute spot available in each show. This is for when more experienced comics want to drop by and perform new material so we can give you more time. Talk to the producer at sign up to claim it on the night. Please be aware on occasion this spot is pre-booked due to out of town visiting comedians etc.

If you're interested in either the Headline spot or the Host spot, please email your application with your bio through to:
