What’s On: THE BIGGEST STARS JAM PACKED INTO THE BIGGEST SYDNEY COMEDY FESTIVAL EVER!

The ninth annual Sydney Comedy Festival has announced its full program with over 150 amazing shows that will take place throughout Sydney and beyond, making it the biggest festival ever!

“With an overwhelming amount of applications and the addition of new venues including the iconic Harold Park Hotel, the Concourse Theatre, Chatswood, and an innovative new Container space at the Factory Theatre, Festival organisers have taken the plunge and rolled out 50 per cent more shows than ever before,” said festival director Jorge Menidis.

Continuing the expansion to new places, the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase will visit regional New South Wales and Queensland for the first time ever with a line-up of some of the funniest and freshest acts from the Festival.

Following the first and second announcement of stellar headlining shows, the complete Sydney Comedy Festival 2013 program has now been unveiled and includes both Festival debuts and the return of crowd favourites.

Making his Enmore Theatre debut is the irrepressible David O’Doherty, pitching their tent at the Seymour Centre is the masters of physical comedy the Pajama Men and everyone’s favourite felt-faced raconteur Randy, will complete his first Sydney solo show at The Metro Theatre.

Performing at the Sydney Comedy Festival for the first time is UK-based Kiwi Jared Christmas, YouTube sensation Alex Williamson and the masked Mexican wrestling marvel El Jaguar.

Celebrating comedy from all over the world, the program also includes Singapore’s hottest new comics in The Sons of Singapore, a United Nations line-up of comedians including Angelo Tsarouchas and Tahir in the world famous Ethnic Comedy All-Stars and from the creators of ‘From Lebanon with Love’, Two & A Half Lebs.

Alongside the seemingly endless array of solo shows, the Festival’s much-loved showcases and special events will return bigger than ever before including the Secret Show, 60 in 60 and a re-vamped Festival Awards. Due to popular demand, Sydney’s biggest night of comedy, Cracker Night, will expand from one night to two and include a second Enmore show.

Rounding out the program is the return of the Festival’s Late Night Club at the Enmore Theatre’s Yalumba Wine Bar, where every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Festival guests can rub shoulders with their favourite comedians over a delicious beverage or two.
