New comedy line-up every Wednesday
The Workers, Darling Street’s favourite destination for cocktails, cool tunes and live entertainment,will launch a brand new comedy night from Wednesday August 21. Curated by the Campfire Collective, comedy at The Workers will be live, local, free and regular… and set to be Balmain’s biggest and best laugh.
Cheap beers will lubricate laugh muscles each and every Wednesday night, while even cheaper tacos will fly out of the Workers Canteen.
At just $3 each, The Workers more-ish tacos include “Nemo Ganzales” – Battered blue eye, slaw, salsa pico de gallo and baja sauce, “Shrimp on da Barbie” – Grilled marinated prawn, slaw, mojo verde and scallions, “Soft Shell Coq” – Grilled chicken, slaw, salsa guacamole and chipotie mayo and the “Pulled Porky Pig” – slow cooked pork shoulder, red slaw, pico de pina asado and coriander.
Share the laughs, plates of tacos and drinks at The Workers for the perfect hump day treat.
Ray Badran, one of Sydney’s finest emerging comics, will join a line-up of young gun comedians on Wednesday August 21st for the launch of ‘Balmain’s Biggest Laugh’ comedy night, every Wednesday at The Workers.
Also hitting The Workers stage for launch night are Cameron James, whose weird and wonderful comedy has been praised for “perfect comic timing” and “unplanned madness”, and Jacques Barrett, Jarred Jekyll.
Campfire Collective producer Michael Brown says, “It’s exciting to see a new live comedy stage launch in the Inner West and, after working with the Riversdale Group to bring comedy to the Standard in Surry Hills, we are thrilled to be working together again to bring some of Sydney and Australia’s best emerging and established comedians to The Workers.”
Paddy Coughlan, Riversdale CEO says, “As politicians often carry on like a bunch of bad comedians, and as The Workers is one of the birthplaces of the Australian Labour Party, we thought we’d launch our comedy night before the next Federal election.”
Adds The Workers bar manager Jeremy Baldi, “I love The Workers commitment to live entertainment, and doing it well. That was a key reason why I came across from the Exchange Hotel in Balmain. It’s exciting to be part of the first push to bring something fresh and new to Balmain.”
And while Wednesday will deliver ‘Balmain’s Biggest Laugh’ at The Workers. live music will continue every Thursday night (with some great new talent to be announced as part of the Red Door Sets) and Hawkey’s Happy Hour every Sunday (along with ping pong), with a drinks list and cocktails crafted from scratch by mixologist and bar manager Jeremy Baldi.
The Workers is open Wed-Sun from 5 pm ‘til late.
