Host and MC Brendhan Lovegrove goes behind the scenes of Pro Night at The Classic Comedy Club in Auckland, in this mockumentary series. Irene Pink, Andre King and Ben Hurley are the evening's performers. Backstage, barely concealed jealousies and rivalries simmer in a less than salubrious green room. Meanwhile, Brendon Pongia, from TVNZ's Good Morning show, is in the audience and pulses quicken at the prospect of an off-peak network TV interview. No-one is safe; be ready for moments of excruciating viewing.
The show's makers understand the secret sadism of audiences: watching comics shrivel and die makes the actual laughs even funnier.– NZ Herald reviewer Deborah Hill-Cone, 1 November 2010
