Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse with support from Brisbane City Council

Comic musings, side-splitting stories and tear-inducing tales…

Australia’s fastest growing comedy festival, Brisbane Comedy Festival, has grown into a multi-venue extravaganza, bursting at the seams to host a hand-picked selection of the funniest folk in the country.

Held from Fri 22 Feb – Sun 24 Mar 2019 at Brisbane Powerhouse, Brisbane City Hall and SunPAC, Brisbane Comedy Festival will play host to one-liners, whimsy and mockery from more than 70 of the most hilarious national and international comedians.

From stand up to improv and sketch comedy, we’ve got your tastes covered, plus we’ll shine a light on the best new talent, here and now!

In 2019, Brisbane Comedy Festival celebrates 10 hilarious years of laughs with an even bigger and better line-up than ever before. Join us for night after night of side-splitting fun.*
