After an impressive 11 year career in the NZ comedy scene, Pax Assadi is launching his first nation-wide tour, hot off the heels of his critically acclaimed sitcom on NEON, Raised By Refugees.   

Celebrated by peers and critics alike, Pax Assadi is one of New Zealand’s strongest and most important comedic voices. Pax is a regular on shows like Have You Been Paying Attention, 7 Days and The Project, and in 2020 he hosted the NZ International Comedy Gala to rave reviews. After sell-out seasons at the 2018 and 2019 Comedy Festival, it isn’t likely that these tickets will last long. Get them now before it sells out and come laugh with one of the heaviest hitting comedians NZ has to offer. 

“By the end of his show you don't feel like you've been at a stand-up gig at all, but instead have just had a few laughs with an old friend around the dining room table.” - Stuff  

“Assadi set the standard for the night and undoubtedly left the audience keen to track down his next full gig.” - NZ Herald
