More Info

The Sydney Comedy Festival is Sydney’s biggest annual comedy event. Every April/May, hundreds of the world’s funniest comedians take to stages across Sydney to entertain an audience of more than 120,000 people. The Festival is one of Sydney’s fastest growing cultural events and every year aims to offer a bigger, better or more diverse program to satisfy Sydney’s rampant appetite for comedy.
With the goal of sharing comedy with the masses outside of Sydney the Festival started the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tour in 2013 visiting regional and metropolitan areas and in 2016 we produced more than 50 shows over 5 months to over 20,000 comedy fans.
The Showcase is a 2 hour gala style show hosted by an MC with a diverse range of comedians hand-selected from our Festival performing a variety of comedy from musical maestros to deadpan comics to absurdist acts we thrive on the quality of acts we take to regional Australia.
