This act is no longer performing, but check out our range of current acts at our sister site Christchurch Entertainment Bureau

The Outwits are Canterbury’s most experienced corporate entertainment troupe.The performers for The Outwits are skilled craftsman in all aspects of our industry – as MCs, comedians, actors, voice-over artists, writers, filmmakers and professional silly buggers.   We each have over 15 years of experience making the toughest crowds in New Zealand laugh.  Thanks to the great flight options around New Zealand, The Outwits now perform over 50% of the time outside of Christchurch.  So if you are hosting an event anywhere in NZ (or the world) do not hesitate to contact us for a quote. 

But what do we do? The Outwits make shows specifically for corporate crowds and events. We have used our improvisational skills to move away from impromptu theatre/ sport games (a crowd pleaser for many years) to create slick, scripted pieces of corporate comedy. Having honed our quick wits in the fast paced arena of “making it up as you go along” means we are ready for anything. But having a script means that we have a sure fire arsenal at our disposal. There is too much riding on the night not to have some big guns ready at a moment’s notice. The Outwits are the best MC’s in New Zealand Utilizing all our skills we offer great options to MC events and conferences.  We tailor our characters to the event and our style of MCing is a blend of fast past comedy presented in a slick and professional manner. The Outwits believe it is important to have a good balance between content and entertainment.  While it is your job to create interesting and relevant content for your sessions, it is our job to make sure the crowd is energized and focused.  We have developed great techniques for doing just that.  As was evident at the Vodafone Awards at the Civic in Auckland.  Here is the feedback: “Madant Productions commissioned The Outwits as The Queen and Prince Philip for the Vodafone Best of British party.  The dedication and effort that The Outwits put towards their characters as The Queen and Prince Philip was astounding and unbeatable!  They were so convincing and rip roaringly funny.  Nothing was an effort and they are always such a pleasure to work with.
