Event: Ha-Listic Comedy: A Mindful Stand-Up experience

Few things feel as good as a deep belly laugh or a peaceful meditation session. Nothing matches the euphoria you get from throwing your head back with laughter or the blissful serenity of being present in the moment with yourself. ​Ha-Listic Comedy​ combines the two in an experience for the soul and the funny bone. Wellness practitioner ​Dov Philips​ (​Inspiring Wellness​) leads a session for both the audience and the entertainers, aligning them all before handing over the reigns for some truly centered laughs.

Ha-Listic Comedy ​is an experiment in comedy and wellness that ​enhance​s how we see stand up comedy and the space it holds in our lives. It is the brainchild of ​Dov Philips​ and the night’s emcee ​Steven Lyons​ who spent 7 years performing in Chicago, USA. He now performs stand up across NZ, warms up audiences for ​The Project​ and​ 7 Days​ and co-founded ​The Dice Show (NZ Comedy Guild nominated Best Live Show 2019 & 2020)

The show features international headliner ​Marty Bright​ who has taken his comedy across Australia – being​ part of ​Sydney Comedy Festival: Breakout Showcase, FRESH​ , and ​Sydney ComedyFestivalRoadshow,​ as well as the world performing across North America, appearing at ​LA’s Comedy Store, New York’s Carolines Comedy Club​ , and​ the Montreal Comedy Works.​ Opening the show is one of Auckland’s most exciting up-and-coming comedians ​Becky Umbers (​NZ Comedy Fest Best Debut 2​ 019 & NZ Comedy Guild Nominated Best Newcomer 2019​). Becky has a unique take on life and a voice to match, she shares stories and observations about a life that seems like a blooper reel from your favorite movie. The show is helmed by Steven Lyons​ Produced by local social enterprise, Paper Goat, ​Ha-Lisitic Comedy combines laughter and meditation in a unique experience where the audience and our performers inspire wellness together by being connected in the ​relaxing space of ​Dov’s practice in Auckland’s CBD. Spaces are very limited with each show being capped at 25 attendees. It will be intimate, joyous and an evening like no other.
