Presented by MARK LOMBARD

Last year, we lampooned our love/hate relationship with Brisbane. This year, we get woke about work … in Brisbane. So if work is getting you down, kick the KPIs and come have some fun!

[email protected] is a hilarious, lighthearted, theatrical show featuring original sketches and songs about Brisbanites and their exasperations in the workplace. Whether you’re blue collar or white, this show will cover you better than workers’ comp and do more for your wellbeing than a HR “professional” ever could.

Mark Lombard is extremely proud to return to the Brisbane Comedy Festival after a sold out season in 2018. Scenestr described Mark’s show as an “epic must see” and said the quality of the writing made for a “great night out to celebrate Brisbane”.

They passed that performance review with flying colours!
Starring: Mark Lombard, James Tinniswood, Mike Griffin, Laura Sullivan and Liz Tuckett.


This show is an epic must see …


… ‘Brisburned’ hits pretty much every nail on the head. The rap in particular is genius but all the writing is insightful, witty and entertaining. Audience members kept nodding to themselves excitedly and whispering ‘that’s so true!’ …


... the show is never mean spirited or pretentious, it is actually a great night out to celebrate Brisbane …
