Get Ready To Chuckle! Brisbane Comedy Festival Is Back

What a crack up!

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 14th July 2021

Get set to ROFL, LMAO, LOL, and :D because Brisbane Comedy Festival is back to give you the most enjoyable ab workout you’ve ever experienced!

Taking over Brisbane Powerhouse, The Tivoli, and The Fortitude Music Hall from 16 July to 8 August, side-splitting stories and tear-inducing tales are to be expected from the hand-picked selection of the funniest folk in the country. The absolutely bonkers line-up includes Christian Hull, Cal Wilson, Jimeoin, Aboriginal Comedy Allstars, Dilruk Jayasinha, Melanie Bracewell, Ross Noble, Peter Helliar, Akmal, Karen From Finance, and more. With a delightful mix of established and emerging talent, all tittering tastes are covered.

Our River City will be put in the hot seat with Brisburned – a sketch comedy show made for everyone who has a love/hate relationship with Brisbanites. Or, if a night of laugher for women’s rights is more your gig, Frocking Hilarious brings Australia’s queens of comedy to the stage for a good cause.

Into crowd participation? This Is Your Trial is an improvised comedy courtroom that will let you point fingers at your loved ones who’ve committed heinous petty crimes against you (or face charges yourself). Or, get political as two teams of festival favourites go head to head in The Debate – a fresh take on tough issues in a quick-thinking battle of wit. Plus, all your faves will be showing off their stand-up chops throughout the festival.

Tickets for Brisbane Comedy Festival are rolling out the door so grab yours here.

Notorious for turning a random encounter into a three-hour conversation and running across streets to pat a dog, Dinu is a curious girl who loves a good story. Her extensive knowledge of Donald Glover is yet to come to good use and she would do basically anything for a hash brown. Catch her bombarding her friends with articles she thinks they should read or spending way too much time creating the perfect playlist.
