A highlight of the international comedy calendar, Brisbane Comedy Festival 2020 returns for its 11th year with a bumper line-up of 85 acts playing in 14 performance spaces across five Brisbane venues.
Brisbane Powerhouse is comedy central, hosting performances and gigs across its iconic New Farm space. Brisbane City Hall and Newstead Brewing Co. will again throw open their doors to entertainers.
Joining the fold for the first time are two new Fortitude Valley venues: the old-world charm of The Tivoli and the shiny newness of Fortitude Music Hall.
The festival kicks off with the Brisbane Comedy Festival Gala at Brisbane City Hall, then runs throughout March for night-after-night of side-splitting fun.
Grin, giggle and guffaw with a slate of national comedy heavyweights such as Dave Hughes, Peter Helliar, Fiona O’Loughlin, Nazeem Hussein, Frank Woodley, Sammy J and the duo we never knew we needed: Paul McDermott and Steven Gates.
