Our Mission

Cartel Comedy was founded in October 2018 with the mission to create a platform not only for comedians but for the audience.

We provide comedians with the stage time that they need to grow as a comedian, we do this by running various open mic nights in and around Wellington or bigger shows such as The Buy were they are paid to perform. One of our goals is to take stand-up comedy outside of Wellington and to places like Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt, Petone etc. We want to spread the experience of watching live stand-up comedy to people that can’t always come into Wellington to watch comedy.
