It’s that time of year again! We’ve just released our first bunch of shows for the 11th Annual Sydney Comedy Festival and it’s shaping up to be a big one! The Festival will run over 4 hilarious weeks from 20th April to 17th May 2015 and our first release line-up is packed with the best international and Aussie acts guaranteed to have Sydney in stitches!
Leading the international charge are UK favourites Ross Noble and Stephen K Amos, both bringing brand new shows to the Festival. Back by popular demand we have one of the nation’s biggest comedy exports Jim Jefferies, the lovable ‘boofhead’ Effie and Egyptian born funnyman Akmal.
After taking out the Sydney Comedy Festival 2014 Best Show award, Ronny Chieng joins the line-up, alongside triple j’s Matt Okine, who enjoyed sell-out seasons around the country this year. Musical newcomers include former Men At Work lead singer Colin Hay and New Zealand’s Topp Twins. Rounding out the first release of performers is UK word-of-mouth smash hit, Luisa Omielan with one of the most successful debut shows to come out of Edinburgh Fringe, What Would Beyonce Do?!
Our much loved comedy extravaganzas are back in 2015 with international comic royalty and home grown sensations coming together once again for comedy’s night-of-night’s The Gala at the world famous Sydney Opera House, and for Sydney’s biggest international comedy gala Cracker Night, taking place across four venues over three huge nights. Hitting the road during the Festival and beyond will be the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase, delivering big laughs from Bondi Beach and Penrith to Wagga Wagga and Sutherland.
