Please note: Scared Scriptless will be starting at 10:30pm during the run of A Streetcar Named Desire from 22 February - 14 March.

Every Friday and Saturday night, Christchurch’s fastest, funniest comedians come together to perform Scared Scriptless; the comedy show that’ll have you doubled over in laughter.

Combining the wit of stand-up, the exhilaration of theatre and your most brilliant – or brilliantly stupid - comedy prompts, Scared Scriptless is the longest running late-night comedy show in the country for good reason.

This improvised show delivers a new experience every week, whether you’ve seen the show a dozen times, or are experiencing the magical chaos of Scared Scriptless for the very first time.


Welcome to being part of the Forge programme, Scared Scriptless. You’ve been too long without a home. 
Associate Director, Dan Bain
