Greetings and welcome to the official site of the Laughing Samoans!

Talofa lava and thanks for visiting our site.  Individually, we are Eteuati Ete and Tofiga Fepulea’i.  Together we are the Laughing Samoans.  The first show we ever did was a show called Laughing With Samoans back in February 2003.  That show was such a success we abbreviated and adopted the name - the Laughing Samoans.  Since then we’ve done and toured new show every year playing to packed houses throughout New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific and north America.

We’re sorry to announce that we’re not going to be producing another touring show in the foreseeable future.  We’ve both had a blast producing a new show every year for the last thirteen years and touring them to cities and towns throughout New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific islands, the US and the UK.  And we’re grateful for the support we’ve had from fans all around the world.  We have continued to grow in popularity and are leaving the stage at a time when we’ve started to find a mainstream audience in New Zealand in particular.  We’ll miss performing as a duo but we are also excited by the possibility of pursuing other goals and know that we’ve both contributed to the development and promotion of Pacific Island comedy in our own small way.  We both wish you all the merriest Christmas and happiest New Year yet.
