Scared Scriptless

Scared Scriptless is New Zealand’s longest-running late-night improvised comedy show, on every Friday and Saturday night at 10:15pm. Fans of shows like Whose Line is it Anyway will have an idea of what they’re in for – quick-thinking improvisors working with no scripts or safety nets to turn audience suggestions into a fast-paced, furiously funny interactive comedy extravaganza.

Come along to The Court Theatre, enjoy a pre-show pizza and experience fast-paced, off-the-cuff theatre with just the right amount of audience interaction plus The Court Jesters’ own brand of razor-sharp wit. It’s been the launching pad for the careers of numerous award-winning comedians including Cal Wilson, Jarred Christmas, “Card Ninja” Javier Jarquin, Hamish Parkinson and more.

You can book through The Court Theatre’s website (, box office (03 963 0870) or just turn up on the night – door sales are available. Tickets are $16 for students and $20 for adults ($18 each for groups of 10+); or get two tickets and a pizza for just $45. Great weekend activity or post-match entertainment.

Scared Scriptless has been making audiences laugh since 1990 – see it for yourself to find out why!
