Testimonials

The evening was wrapped up by Michele A'Court - a true comedy diva... In an international comedy competition she has my vote for NZ's representative.

The show is hosted by Michele A'Court. She is an intelligent, engaged and observant stand-up comedian with some wry gags… You get the feeling she could pump out an amusing opinion on anything if you gave her five minutes and a microphone. That's no small talent.
Christchurch Press 2010

Michele A'Court is the one with the most to say social satire-wise... A lovely combination of ruthless and loving.

French and Saunders all rolled into one… cajoling the audience along on a journey, combined with biting wit and sarcasm
Dominion Post

Our hostess Michele A'Court is an entertaining mixture of composure and nuttiness. In between acts, she gives a cross-section of her various dislikes, letting rip her spring-loaded, 'middle-aged' rancour without apology. Michele sets the tone for a warm, friendly atmosphere and plenty of audience involvement.

Michele A’Court was the mistress of ceremony, a highly skilled and immensely talented comedienne. She also took a part in the monologues and showed her range as an actor of substance.
Hawkes Bay Opera House

['Heritage 101' is] a quasi-comedic dissertation-cum-survey on being a Pakeha New Zealander… It brings refreshing substance, as well as wit, to the festival.
National Business Review

Relaxed and articulate award-winning comedian Michele A'Court brings an earthy perceptiveness to Robyn [Mum's The Word]… Her wartime rural grandmother's story is as compelling as her insightful observations are funny.
National Business Review 

Right on the button… truly insightful… What more could you ask for? 
Capital Times 

Tight, taut, and very, very funny.
Bay of Plenty Times

Effortless style… 
Dominion Post

Sassy... confident... snide... outrageous and probably libellous...
NZ Herald

The humour is modern, urbane, intelligent, inventive and irreverent – reminiscent of the best television humour in the days before satire was turned into homogenised, disarmed filling for the gaps between commercials… the pace, the timing, the variety, the polish and cheerful iconoclasm that make an evening of good comedy.
Otago Daily Times

Comedy that packed a punch... One of the top shows of the Fringe.
Capital Times

Finally, a show that lives up to its publicity... Talented performer... perceptive student of the human condition.
Daily Telegraph 

Hits the ground running a comical gauntlet of innuendo and punchy improvising that quickly builds a rapport with the audience. 
Dominion

Has personality to burn...
Capital Times

Masterful... Willingness to tackle controversial political issues with confidence and flair... Seasoned and talented professional... What a good stand-up show should do.
