Meet our Auckland MC, Justine Smith

Having won the Billy T Award, the NZ Comedy Guild Best Female Comedian (three times) and the NZCG Best MC (also three times), Justine has established herself as one of the key players in New Zealand Comedy. With a flick of the eye and “To be honest...” she will have you all in stitches.

Justine is a regular face on our screens, THREE’s 7Days, The Project, TVNZ’s Have You Been Paying Attention, along with many stand-up shows such as AotearoHA, A Night At The Classic, After Hours, Stand Up Aotearoa, and many Comedy Galas – which she hosted in 2021.

Known for her regularly performing shows in the NZ International Comedy Festival, The Justine Smith Hour, Return of the Jussi and Jussi Town, have had audiences returning year after year. Justine has also collaborated with Ben Hurley with their split bill show A Cheeky Half Each and taken shows to many festivals around the country.

Justine does not suffer fools. Oh no she doesn’t. Those who know Justine will readily testify to the fact that she is one of the most honest comics you’re likely to meet. This combined with her razor-sharp wit and biting commentary also make Justine one of the funniest people you’re likely to meet.

If you were to try and define Justine as a lover or a fighter, you’d have to say a healthy mix of both. She is capable of tearing strips off people on stage, and then having a drink with them after the show. A leading light of New Zealand Comedy, Justine is just as comfortable in a theatre or a local bar in the country. Simply put, one of our best.

Come and see Justine on the main stage at Winetopia - Friday, October 28 5-8:30PM, Saturday, October 29 12-3:30 and 4:30-8pm. Tickets available for purchase
