The Brisbane Comedy Festival returns for its 11th year and is back with its best shows to date. There will be performances from international stars and local talent from across Brisbane, TONNES of family fun as well as more venues being introduced to bring more laughs than ever before!

There is an impressive line-up of 85 acts playing in 14 performance spaces across five Brisbane venues from the 21st of February to the 22nd of March 2020.

Brisbane Powerhouse will be comedy central with its gigs and hosted performances across its iconic New Farm space – from its rooftop to its storeroom – with Brisbane City Hall and Newstead Brewing Co opening their doors to entertainers.

There will be many adult-only jokes being made, but there are plenty of events the kids can get excited for too in the dedicated family and all-ages program! The hilarious events will consist of:

  • Around the Campfire improvised comedy;
  • Mr Snot bottom’s Horrible, Terrible, Really, Really, Bad, Bad, Show;
  • Dusty Rich’s Stand Up Comedy for Kids (and Adults);
  • the rough justice of This Is Your Trial;
  • and Brisbane heats and state final of the Class Clowns competition for students in Years 9-12

The full program with date and times is available on the Brisbane Comedy Festival’s website here.
