BRISBANE COMEDY FESTIVAL 2022

IS THIS THE LONGEST COMEDY FESTIVAL EVER?

No, but yeah, but…

Technically Brisbane Comedy runs from 29 April to 29 May.

However, COVID crashed the party in 2021 so a bunch of comedians who had their laughs cut short have rescheduled their shows for early 2022.

The joke’s on COVID, though, because it means we’ll be rolling in the aisles fairly solidly from January until June.

ALRIGHT, WHO’S ON THE LINE-UP?

Get your international fix with UK comedians Ross Noble and Jeff Green, Australia’s favourite Venezuelan Ivan Aristeguieta and Kiwi Melanie Bracewell.

Big-name Aussie acts include Wil Anderson, Tom Ballard, Peter Helliar, Dave Thornton, Judith Lucy and Effie.

And, of course, a Brisbane Comedy Festival isn’t complete without homegrown heroes such as Mel Buttle and Becky Lucas.

WHERE CAN I CATCH A LAUGH?

This multi-venue laughter extravaganza is held across Brisbane Powerhouse, The Tivoli and The Fortitude Music Hall.

WHAT HAPPENS IF COVID INTERRUPTS THE FESTIVAL? AGAIN?

Surely it’s third-time lucky…?

Seriously though, the safety of Festival audiences members, staff and artists is no laughing matter.

A COVID Safe Plan is in place for Brisbane Comedy Festival venues and all patrons must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in line with Government-mandated vaccination requirements and check-in using the Check In Qld app.

If a performance is postponed because of ‘Rona, ticketholders will be contacted and offered rescheduled dates or a full refund.

HOW DO I BUY TICKETS?

So glad you asked! Tickets are selling out faster than RAT kits in a pandemic.
