2013 Festival Breaks All Records!


We said it was going to be big and it was. In fact, 2013 was officially and emphatically the biggest Sydney Comedy Festival ever!


Over 111,600 people came out to see 155 different shows featuring more than 350 artists – generating a record box office of more than $4.5 million.


And the fun is not over yet, with the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tour kicking off in Canberra this week before making its way to towns and cities all across regional New South Wales and Queensland. Click here for more on tour dates.


We would like to thank all of the artists, producers, sponsors & event partners, festival & venue staff,  of course, you the audience for making the 2013 Festival such a huge success.


We’re celebrating our 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY in 2014 so get ready for the biggest comedy party Sydney has ever seen!


Dates for the Festival are Tuesday 22 April – Saturday 17 May 2014 so clear your calendar and get ready to laugh.  Artist Applications for 2014 will open in September.
