Don't Quit Your Day Job

Which comedian can cut a job in the "real-world"?

This show gets comedians to compete in a series of quizzes and improv situations all based around one area of work. Each vying to see who can walk away with the Champions title of "Employee of the Month".

Host Hoani Hotene will be joined each night by team captains Lesa Macleod-Whiting and Jerome Chandrahasen. They'll also be joined by a number of local comedians and an improv team made of up of some of Wellington's best improv acts
