Sydney Comedy Festival


The Sydney Comedy Festival will return this year for the 14th year of delivering rambunctious laughter to the city and greater surrounds. Across four massive weeks from 23rd April to 20th May, the Festival will deliver an epic program of international and local comedy stars.

The Festival will kick off in grand style with the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala at the Sydney Opera House on 23rd April, the Enmore Theatre and Riverside Theatres (Parramatta) on 24th April and The Concourse (Chatswood) on 25th April. The Gala includes a curated selection of comedy legends alongside the next big-things for one huge night of comedy fun.

Throughout the Festival, the laughs will be rolled out to a multitude of venues including the Sydney Town Hall, Factory Theatre, Sydney Opera House, the Comedy Store, the Enmore Theatre, Giant Dwarf, Riverside Theatres and The Concourse.

With more than 122,000 visitors in 2017, the Sydney Comedy Festival continues to be the city’s largest annual comedy event. Following Sydney, the Festival’s Showcase Tour will complete a 50-stop nationwide tour.
