Michèle A’Court

Winner of “Comedienne of the Decade” at the 2010 NZ Comedy Awards, Michèle A’Court is a stand-up comedian and writer.

 

She has been on New Zealand TV screens since 1987 and still turns up all over the place. She talks a lot – sometimes on radio and TV, sometimes in pubs and clubs – and works the comedy circuit in places like San Francisco, Las Vegas, Vancouver, Brisbane, Adelaide, Auckland and Mangawhai.

 

Michèle writes a weekly column on social issues for the Press and the stuff.co.nz website and she is also in demand as a social commentator on television and radio. She likes to say she has a “portfolio career” which includes work as a corporate MC and entertainer, an actor, voice artist and freelance feature writer.

Michèle has one child – her daughter born in 1993 – and didn’t have any more because she was so spectacular, any subsequent children would have been a disappointment. Michèle lives on Auckland’s North Shore with her favourite husband.

 

Michèle’s current solo comedy show, “Stuff I Forgot To Tell My Daughter” deals with all the big (and small) issues we forget to tell our kids. The show is now also a book published by Harper Collins and it’s available in all good book stores and some of the shit ones from April 2015.

 

How to pronounce A’Court

Hot Tip: How to pronounce A’Court – bloody difficult, I know, and most people can’t get it right unless they are actually an A’Court. The ‘A’ is pronounced like the letter A (as in ABC) and the emphasis is heavy on that ‘A’. A-court. So it sounds a lot like ‘Acorn’. With a ‘t’ at the end, rather than an ‘n’. Obviously.
