The Sydney Comedy Festival is Sydney’s biggest annual comedy event. Every April/May, hundreds of 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 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.


Dusty Rich: Hailing from South Africa, this unconventional comic is spontaneous, full of energy, and an exhilarating experience

Jacques Barrett: Charismatic king of the Australian comedy scene!

Shayne Hunter: Wildly intelligent and completely unpredictable, a master of thinking outside of the box.

Angus Gordon: winner of Best Newcomer Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017 & 2015 Raw Comedy.

Kat Davidson: Brisbane’s own ABC Local Radio host and reporter, bringing her signature brand of story-telling and observational comedy.

Ting Lim: Singaporean-born and a beloved favourite on the Brisbane comedy scene.

Sandeep Totlani: His perspective is fresh, stage persona likeable and style of comedy, both intriguing and hilarious.
