Wednesdays with WIT, 2008 – 2011

default_clip_image002Between festivals and seasons of shows such as The Young and the Witless WIT began to regularly organise more informal nights at the Blue Note Bar (now the Fringe Bar).  These were collectively promoted under the umbrella of Wednesdays with WIT, with the name shifting to The Improv Lounge in 2012.

Shows in Wednesdays with WIT included many Micetros, Gorillas, House Team shows, The Improv Lab (itself an umbrella for a variety of shows) and more.  Many shows such as The Last Saloon and  Divas and the Beast had their first public outing at a WwW evening before going on to a Fringe or Comedy Festival season.

Battle of WITs, Fringe 2007

fringe2007whiteicon The 11-strong cast will risk life and limb to act out scenes totally made up on the spot. They’ll attempt to outwit, outplay and outlast the other improvisers. You decide which scene wins, who receives immunity and who finally becomes Battle Of Wits champion!

February – March 2007, at Newtown Community Centre, Tararua Tramping Club, St Johns Hall, Karori, Linden Community Hall, Linden.
