Justine Smith won the Billy T Award and the NZ Comedy Guild Best Female Comedian and has established herself as one of the key players in new Zealand Comedy. With a flick of the eye and “To be honest...” she will have the audience in stiches.
Justine does not suffer fools. No she doesn’t. Those who know Justine will readily testify to the fact the she is one of the most honest and confronting comics you’re likely to meet. This combined with her razor sharp wit and biting commentary also makes Justine one of the funniest people you’re likely to meet.
Justine has appeared in numerous TV shows, the Comedy Gala, AotearoHA, hosted TV3’s Divas and has been a writer for The Jono Project.
If you were to try and define Justine as a lover or a fighter, you’d have to say both. She is capable of tearing strips off people on stage, and then buy them a drink after the show. A leading light of New Zealand Comedy, Justine is just as comfortable in a theatre or a local bar in the country. Simply put, one of our best.
