Well hey howdy hello!
Got some super exciting news for you, so there'll be no beating around any bushes, real or figurative.
We've just launched the first two (yes, the first TWO) episodes of Mic Drop Season 02 here and on our Facebook page. There's Emma Wollum (massively funny musical comedian and winner of 2017 Wellington Comedy Award for Best Joke), and Cohen Holloway (from the movies, Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and Thor: Ragnarok).
The view counts for these two episodes are climbing at a very pleasing rate, so go check 'em out now.
And one other holy-moly-frijoles exciting thing is we now have Mic Drop MERCHANDISE. Ooh yeah, we sure do. Head on over to our Merch Store to score yourself some sweet Mic Drop swag.
We'll be uploading new designs to the store all the time, so bookmark it and keep heading back. Every cent we earn from merch sales will help us create more amazing kiwi comedy.
So that's it. Two HUGE pieces of news. Hope you have a great day.
It has been a few weeks since the "Wellington Mic Drop" Season 2 filming, so I figured I'd update you on how things are going.
All the various video footage (four feeds) and audio clips (six feeds) have now been collated and the painstaking cutting/editing process has begun.
We also managed to catch some behind-the-scenes interviews and supplementary footage during the two live shows, so we'll be using that to make a second episode of our other series, "Mic Drop Presents..."
Masterfully crafting this media pile into 17 WMD episodes AND one MDP episode... is going to be an EPIC TASK for our editor (Ben). He's going to need all the positive thoughts we can throw his way (and probably caffeine and/or sugar).
As soon as there's something to release, we'll let you know!
Thanks again for all your support :-)
Wahoo! The crowdfunding target was reached and our little project is fully funded!
Ooh yeah it's a great feeling when the community comes together to help a local group achieve something wonderful.
We're going to use the donations to professionally film and record some incredibly comedians doing their best stuff, and make something the whole capital can be proud of.
And I said "YOU did it" because you did. We are incredibly grateful for the support of all of the generous donors.
Thank you so much!
(And if you donated, look out for your name on the Mic Drop website under Sponsors, and on the show credits at the end of every Season 02 episode).

Hey Mic Droppers! (I gave you a nickname. Is that cool? Let me know if it's not. I don't mind. You know what? It's probably not fine. I take it back. Sorry about that.)
After a whole lot of delays (solely on my part), our Boosted crowdfunding campaign is now LIVE! Hooray! Huzzah! Celebrate good times, indeed.
If you feel like helping us out, by donating a few bucks and/or spreading the word to your rich mates, that would be choice as. Heaps choice. Mega choice.
We're working hard to make Season 02 of Wellington Mic Drop even bigger and better than Season 01, and that's gonna require a helping hand from generous folks like you.
Thanks for all your support (smiley face or something).
Hey howdy hi, everyone!
Just a quick heads up to let you know we've confirmed all of our fantastic Wellington Mic Drop Season 02 performers, and added them to the COMEDIANS page, including bios about each and every one of them.
There are 18 comics in total. EIGHTEEN. Holy guacamole! That's almost double what we had in Season 01.
If you want to know more about any of these great comics, or if you want to book them for a show or event, feel free to drop us an email or hit us up on Facebook and we'll pass the information on to them.
More updates on Season 02 coming soon!
It's Brad here (one of the Mic Drop producers), just giving you a little update on some things.
WELLINGTON MIC DROP SEASON 02
As you may already know, we're well into the planning stages of Wellington Mic Drop Season 02. We're really excited to film another fantastic lineup of comedians for your viewing pleasure, and this time it's bigger than ever!
We've got 17 comics lined up for season 02. 17 comics! That's almost twice the size of season 01. There's a great mix of big established names and rising stars, and we can't wait to get underway.
There's going to be a Boosted.org.nz crowdfunding campaign rolling out soon, to help cover some of the production costs, and we'll keep you informed about that as it progresses. If you want to donate a few bucks to help us make the show as good as it can be, that would be great. If not, that's cool too.
MIC DROP PRESENTS...
The other exciting thing I want to tell you about is our other video series in production, "Mic Drop Presents...". It's a behind-the-scenes series, shining a spotlight on local shows and select local performers.
We just released our first episode of Mic Drop Presents, giving you a sneak peek at our monthly joke-swapping show, "I Didn't Write This". It was a crazy show, in front of a sold-out crowd, and you can check it out either here or on the Mic Drop Facebook page.
As always, we love hearing from you, so please feel free to hit us up on Facebook or Twitter, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
