Friday Laughs, a two-hour comedy showcase featuring some of the country's favourite performers, is coming to Kerikeri's Turner Centre on Friday 27 May thanks to grant funding from Far North District Council.

Jerome Chandrahasan of the Humorous Arts Charitable Trust Board received a grant towards Live Laughs at the 8 March 2022 Creative Communities committee meeting, with additional support from Pub Charities Ltd.

The night will be hosted by Michele A'Court, who won Female Comedian of the Decade at the NZ Comedy Guild Awards in 2010 and is likely to be familiar to many through her work on TV and radio in addition to the stage.

Headlining the night is Jeremy Elwood, who is best known as a regular panellist on TV3's 7 Days and RNZ's The Panel. Having won the New Zealand Comedy Guild's 'Best Male Comedian' and 'Best MC' for several years, Jeremy has proven himself to be one of the most in demand and consistent comedians in the country. 

Other comedians include Tongan Māori comic Opeti Vaka from South Auckland, who was a Wellington Raw Comedy Quest winner in 2019, and actor-turned-comedian Sera Devcich of The Project and 7 Days.

The Turner Centre has recently released 50 tickets in the gallery at just $29.90. Door sales will be available but advanced purchases are recommended. Standard tickets cost $49.90, student and senior tickets $39.90, and are available at iticket.co.nz .
