During the 2020 pandemic, New Zealand is one of the first countries in the world to open back up to live comedy. We think this historical moment needs to be documented, celebrated and most importantly, we want to share an inspiring message of hope.
“First Laugh” is a live comedy show featuring New Zealand’s top comedians, in support of Direct Relief, an organization in over 80 countries whose mission is to improve the lives of people affected by Covid-19, as well as other emergency situations.
The world needs a laugh. Let’s make the first one count. Laughter is the best medicine. Come and join us!
WHAT IS DIRECT RELIEF?
Direct Relief improves the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies – without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay.
Founded in 1948, Direct Relief is a humanitarian health organization that each year distributes more than a billion dollars-worth of medical resources to healthcare providers in all 50 U.S. states and about 100 countries. Direct Relief has developed ongoing partnerships with more than 200 companies to fulfill requests from thousands of frontline health workers who care for the medically underserved. These relationships allow Direct Relief to act quickly and efficiently before, during, and after emergencies – and always in a manner that respects and involves the people served.
