Just like in Melbourne, where the local comedy festival is traditionally housed in the civic heart of the city, Sydney Comedy Festival is moving into Sydney Town Hall. For punters this means a jam-packed program of the best comedy from around the world by night and a free children’s program by day. An interactive jungle for kids will include play stations, storytelling and live shows.
Even a comedy dilettante will be tempted by big names like Arj Barker, Ross Noble, Kitty Flanagan and Stephen K Amos. Your present for the impossible-to-buy-for dad is sorted.
Sydney Comedy Festival is a keen supporter of new emerging talent. Their FRESH program offers financial assistance and professional advice to help rising stars grow. Considering success stories include Ronny Chieng and Matt Okine, this is your chance to find your favourite comedian before they get famous. Tickets are only $15!
Catherine Deveny’s Pushy Women has collected the country’s funniest women to share their story of life on two wheels. As a bonus, you get a free guided cycling tour around the city. Get your pedal pushers ready.
