Ready the tissues Brisbane because you’re about to be in tears. And no, we’re not talking the boohoo type of tears, we’re talking the laughing-until-your-eyes-water type of crying.

The program is chock-a-block with 350 events, featuring 130 comedians across the city’s iconic venues of the Brisbane Powerhouse, The Tivoli, The Princess Theatre and The Fortitude Music Hall.
