A big name in New Zealand Comedy, Jeremy Corbett, is gearing up to fill TSB Hub with laughter for this year’s Hāwera Comedy Night.

Former local lad, Ben Hurley, is coming home and bringing with him some of his fellow comedians.

"The annual Hāwera Comedy Night has been running for nine years and is a tradition that comedians love to be a part of,” says Hurley.

Jeremy is most commonly known as the host of ‘7 Days’. He began his comedy career broadcasting at Massey University, before moving in to stand-up comedy.

South Taranaki District Council Community Events Coordinator Liesl Davidson says the night will once again be presided over by MC Hurley and Sera Devcich will be the supporting act for Corbett.

"Sera worked in theatre before moving into comedy and worked alongside some of New Zealand’s best comedians - so she will be sure to put on a good show,” says Davidson.

The annual Hāwera Comedy Night will be held on Saturday 27 October and is R16.

Tickets will go on sale at the South Taranaki i-SITE Visitors Centre on Thursday 20 September. Tickets cost $50 each or book a table of 10 for $450.
