NZ vs The World

Jennifer O'Sullivan (NZ)

Plucky Kiwi underdogs take on the world in this feisty finale! Hosted by festival director Jennifer O'Sullivan, New Zealand vs the World pits a team of local improvisors against the best of our international guests. Round by round we’ll see who’s got the goods - will Team New Zealand remain world champs or will our international superstars humble our hometown heroes? See out our tenth anniversary festival with a heck of a bang!
