The Comedy Hub is an incorporated society that's been producing and promoting all forms of comedy in Palmerston North and the Manawatu since 2017!

We aim to support the growth and development of people with an interest or passion for comedic performance in Palmerston North and the wider Manawatu region. We're working to establish a small, vibrant and diverse comedy scene and we aim to achieve this by working towards the following goals:


  1. Provide local up and coming comedians with meaningful performance opportunities that allow them to hone their craft and develop material in front of audiences.

  2. Running regular workshops that promote creativity, collaboration and critical thinking regarding comedic performance, as well as teaching fundamentals of comedy.

  3. The promotion of comedy to audiences and making it a viable live entertainment option for the people of Palmerston North and the Manawatu, in particular, with the student population.

Got a comedy related production that you want promoting? Are you keen on jumping up on stage yourself? Or, would you like to become a member? We can help you! So get in touch with us!
