FREE Entry BUT ***Limited Spaces Available*** - Due to Covid-19 we are operating at limited capacity. Please reserve your seat on EventBrite (link below) to ensure that you can attend (it's super easy)

THE RULES:

1. Comedians Get a Guaranteed 2 minutes before the boxing bell sounds signalling they are open to be gonged off stage. Their goal is to last 7 minutes at which point victory trumpets will sound and that comedian is 'In the money' for the night.

2. The King Gong will gong the contestant for 3 reasons:

- The audience in general doesn't seem to be enjoying the performance, there is a sustained period of little or no laughter for 40 seconds or more.

- 3/4 of the audience judges (selected at the start of the show) raise their 'Paddle of Judgment' signalling that they are displeased with the performance.

- The King Gong establishes that the comedian is doing material that has been overdone in previous weeks OR is taken from another comedian OR is hacky as shit OR is deliberately stalling in order to drag out the set.

3. Depending on numbers of comedians on the night, Comedians that have been gonged already may go up on stage again with different jokes/a new character and attempt to run the gauntlet again.

4. Comedians that joke about the 'Word of the week' in their opening two minutes are guaranteed an extra 30 seconds of amnesty and more mercy from the King Gong - This word will be announced the day before the show to encourage comedians to write under pressure.

This is a Free Show *BUT* donations (suggested 5 Euro) will be taken to go into the pot. All donations will then be split between the comedians that beat the gong.

Hosted by John Allis (NZ) and featuring comedians from around the world.
