Funny Girls - NZ Suffragette Special

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2018

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern shows off her comedy prowess in this Funny Girls special, celebrating 125 years of Kiwi women attaining the right to vote. Ardern corrects the blatant lies of "Pauline the producer" (Jackie van Beek), and puts up with Pauline kissing her. This episode is a who's who of female Kiwi comedians, featuring (for the first time) live stand-up alongside the sketches — including Justine Smith and Billy T winners Melanie Bracewell and Angella Dravid. The Suffragette Special followed series three. 

...We must learn as we’re growing up to fight each other for the love of one man.
– Comedian Justine Smith, on what TV reality dating show The Bachelor teaches young women
