The Brisbane Comedy Festival 2021 is an event not to be missed for some serious LOL's and boy do we need them more than ever post COVID!
Held from 16 July to the 8th of August 2021, this multi-venue laughter extravaganza held across Brisbane Powerhouse, The Tivoli and The Fortitude Music Hall, plays host to one-liners, whimsy and mockery from some of the most hilarious national and local comedians.
From stand-up to improv and sketch comedy, they have got your tastes covered, plus will shine a light on the best new talent, here and now!
The festival will kick off the 24-day event at Fortitude Music Hall, hosted by Tommy Little.
Straight-talking YouTube star and lockdown legend Nat’s What I Reckon hits the Powerhouse to play his new show ‘On Purpose’ and beloved comedic import Ross Noble brings ‘Comeback Special’ to the Powerhouse as well.
Also emerging from lockdown with fresh material is Effie (Mary Coustas) in ‘Better Out Than In’.
A diverse schedule of acts will continue hitting the Brisbane Powerhouse stage including Christian Hull, Paul McDermott, Mel Buttle, Kevin Kropinyeri, Jimeoin, Cal Wilson, Aboriginal Allstars, Nikki Osbourne and Tom Ballard.
Brisbane comedy couple Stav and Kat Davidson present an encore season of ‘He Said, She Said’ with fresh and funny life-in-lockdown material included.
The Powerhouse also hosts the return of festival faves such as ‘Frocking Hilarious’, ‘Queerstories’, ‘Brisburned’, ’This Is Your Trial’ and ‘Knockoff’.
The Tivoli will host the Brisbane Comedy Festival Sunday Roast, serving up a feast of guest acts including Fiona O’Loughlin, Peter Helliar, Anne Edmonds & Lloyd Langford, Rosie Waterland, Dave Thornton and Geraldine Hickey.
‘RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under’’s Karen From Finance heads ‘Out Of Office’ to bring her high camp one-woman show to The Tivoli too, as do The Naked Magicians in their ‘Home-Coming Tour’.
“Everyone will be looking forward to Brisbane’s favourite funny festival, showcasing homegrown talent, household names, as well as three of Brisbane’s incredible arts and live music venues,” Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner says.
“Festivals like this contribute to our vibrant and creative city, providing more to see, do, and smile about, while supporting our arts and events industry.”
