    Sydney Comedy Festival – 24th April – 21st May 2017

    The Sydney Comedy Festival is Sydney’s biggest annual comedy event and will kick off from 24th April until 21st May 2017. 

    Every April and May, hundreds of the world’s funniest comedians take to stages across Sydney to entertain an audience of more than 122,500 people, followed by a 56-stop Showcase Tour across Australia that performs to over 25,000 annually.

    The Festival kicks off in grand style with lavish gala events: the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala at the Sydney Opera House as well as Cracker Night (Sydney’s biggest night of comedy) at the Enmore Theatre, The Concourse Chatswood and Riverside Theatre.

    The Festival program, curated by Festival Director Jorge Menidis, features performances from the finest Australian acts, the biggest international stars and the most promising emerging talent offering up everything from stand up to sketch, satire, impro, musical, absurdist, theatre, magic and kids comedy.

    Beginning in 2005 as the Cracker Sydney Comedy Festival, the Festival officially rebranded as Sydney Comedy Festival in 2009.
    Today, the Festival is one of Sydney’s fastest growing cultural events and every year aims to offer a bigger, better or more diverse program to satisfy Sydney’s rampant appetite for comedy.
