Wahoo! It’s that time of the year again! No, I’m not encouraging you to become a lemming gym junkie to get rid of those summer kgs (they might give you a glow) – its belly laughing time at the 13th ANNUAL SYDNEY COMEDY FESTIVAL! And it’s on for ages! Starting the day before Anzac Day, and running all the way through until May 21st, you’re bound to find a venue to laugh your arse off east/ south/ north and west. Then maybe it would’ve cooled off enough to shed those muffin tops ☺
The 13th Annual Sydney Comedy Festival is Sydney’s biggest annual comedy event. More than 110,000 people will go see the biggest international stars & the most promising new talent. This is truly a calendar event like no other. Whether you go alone for a much-needed laugh, choose it for an ice breaker first date OR with a group of mates that have the same odd sense of humour as you – it’s a guaranteed cracker night out. Perhaps grab that friend who is in need of a pick me up, or even so they can see there are other quirky stars out there just like them. And branch out of your usual hood, Parramatta plus Chatswood are also hosting this awesome event.
Tickets have now been released for international stars including Jason Byrne (IRE), David O’ Doherty (IRE), Urzila Carlson (NZ/RSA), Daniel Sloss (SCO), Des Bishop (USA/IRE), Stephen K Amos (UK), Paul Foot (UK), Rose Matafeo (NZ), Sarah Callaghan (UK), Jimeoin (UK), Anne Klinge (GER), Larry Dean (SCO) and Arj Barker (USA).
On the local front, tickets are now up-for-grabs to shows from Dave Hughes, Aunty Donna, Joel Creasey, Matt Okine, Nazeem Hussain, Rove McManus, Susie Youssef, Tom Gleeson, Merrick Watts, Neel Kolhatkar, Lehmo, Akmal, Lawrence Mooney, Alex Williamson, Luke Heggie, Rhys Nicholson, Tommy Little, Nick Cody, Justin Hamilton, Becky Lucas, Dave Eastgate and Puppetry of the Penis.
I reckon there’s nothing better than a good laugh, everyone knows that. But to laugh your pants off when you didn’t expect to is the absolute best. Come out with a new favourite comedian, a super sore belly and tears in your eyes this April/ May at the 13th Annual Sydney Comedy Festival. Come laugh with me now!
