Winner of “Female Comedian of the Decade” at the 2010 NZ Comedy Guild Awards, Michele A’Court is a fulltime professional stand-up comedian and freelance writer. Her work turns up everywhere – on stage, television, radio; in newspapers and magazines – and she is in demand as a comic, an event MC, and also as a social commentator across all media.
Michele is a regular guest on TV3’s award-winning comedy show “7 Days”; she is on Radio NZ National’s “The Panel” with Jim Mora; and “9 to Noon” with Kathryn Ryan and Te Radar. Michele has been writing a weekly column for The Christchurch Press since 2008 and relishes the opportunity to comment on current social issues. She is also a frequent freelance contributor to several national magazines.
In 2013 she had a regular role in the final series of the TVNZ drama, “Go Girls”, playing Miriam Hirsch – mother of Levi and foster mother to Ted and Bennie, the lead characters.
Michele’s latest solo comedy show, “Stuff I Forgot To Tell My Daughter”, was a sold-out hit at the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival and the 2014 World Buskers Festival.
