Jaquie facilitates discussion and demonstration with writer/producer/actor/comedian Millen Baird, actor/comedian Fasitua Amosa, actor/stunt performer Glen Levy, director/producer/actor Keil McNaughton and actor/producer Kerry Warkia about being funny under pressure.

Teams will compete live on the night to cut the funniest scene out of footage provided. Winner decided by audience vote. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register interest in competing.
