The Fan Brigade is an award-winning musical stand up comedy duo in Aotearoa New Zealand.
“Their musical performances are creative and intellectual masterpieces” – Metro Magazine
Two good bitches with backstories united by chance on Twitter, Livi Reihana and Amanda Kennedy are stupid ugly feminazi bitches who should gas themselves… or talented comedians taking the New Zealand comedy scene by storm (depends who you ask).
“…Brilliantly bawdy, fabulously facetious and exceedingly entertaining… riotous and wildly audacious” – Appetite for the Arts
Appearances include TV3’s 7 Days, The Project, AotearoHA 2016, and the 2017 TV3 Comedy Gala as part of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival. They went on to perform to sold out crowds in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch for the 2017 Comedy Gala Tour. In the subsequent 2017 Best Comedy Show on Earth national tour they dazzled audiences in 13 NZ cities from Invercargill to Whangarei. It’s cool cos it’s true. They also featured in the 2016 AMEX Queenstown Winter Festival Comedy Night and as the entertainment before the legendary Comedy Debate but that’s old news now. It was real fun though.
“Their charming presence won over the crowd instantly.” – Keeping Up With NZ
The Fan Brigade’s solo shows in the New Zealand International Comedy Festivals are wildly popular so book your tickets early. Their 2016 sold-out show Ask the Fan Brigade was followed by another sold-out season in 2017 with Don’t Ask the Fan Brigade, including guest appearances by legendary Fan Brigade crushes Mike McRoberts and Tamati Coffey.
Well-established locally, this hilarious duo delights the crowds regularly at Auckland’s Classic Comedy Club and a range of other comedy and corporate events.
