Famous faces Basejump is inspired by

Welcome to Basejump Comedy!

We perform and teach comedy inspired by some of the great sketch and improv theatres from the USA such as The UCB Theatre, Pack Theatre LA, and Chicago's iO and Annoyance Theatres.

This style of comedy has been made famous by the likes of actors such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Mike Myers, Key & Peele and more! Now you can get in on the action, right here in Wellington.

A handsome portrait of Joel Luscombe

Joel "JPL" Luscombe is a director, teacher, student and addict of comedy. Having trained across the United States at iO Chicago, The Annoyance, UCB, and The Pack Theater, many of his favourite memories come from being on stage with an idea, an impulse, and a team that's ready to go all-in for a late night crowd.

As Basejump's Creative Director he hopes to make Wellington a funnier place where everyone can get weird and create cool shit
