THIS EVENT IS NOW IN THE PAST. FOR MORE GREAT THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN AND AROUND BRISBANE, PLEASE HEAD TO OUR WHAT'S ON PAGE HERE

Australia’s funniest are bringing their brand-new shows to the Brisbane Comedy Festival!

You've seen them on the small screen, starring on Have You Been Paying Attention?, Thank God You’re Here and across social media - now it’s time to experience live comedy on the big stage and have a great, feel good night out. 

Here are 10 of the funniest shows to see at this year's festival!

Nath Valvo

Nath Valvo, Brisbane Powerhouse, May 2-5

High energy and non-stop laughter is what you can expect from a Nath Valvo show, with some high kicks and twirls in between killer jokes! Fresh from the invite-only Montreal Comedy Festival, hosting Just For Laughs Australia, and sell out shows across the country – you’d be silly to miss Nath’s new show.

Wil Anderson

Wil Anderson, The Tivoli, May 3-5

Wil Anderson returns to Brisbane Comedy Festival with his brand-new show WILEGITIMATE. Don't miss the six-time Melbourne Comedy Festival People’s Choice and Helpmann Award winner when he hits the Tivoli stage.

Tommy Little

Tommy Little, Brisbane Powerhouse, May 10-12

Brace yourself for a tidal wave of laughter as Australia’s reigning deckhead of comedy, Tommy Little, brings his  hilarious new show, Tommy Little Has a Regular Size Deck, to Brisbane Powerhouse for a top night out. 

Lizzy Hoo

Lizzy Hoo, The Tivoli, May 17-18

Playing to sold out crowds across the country, Lizzy’s mix of stand up and storytelling is both earnest and dry and sometimes a little dark. Her brand new show is about love, grief and sharing custody of her dog. Let’s just say her past year has been a mix of emotions.

Dave Hughes

Dave Hughes, Brisbane Powerhouse, May 18

Hughesy was born to play at the Brisbane Comedy Festival. It’s the highlight of his year. Don't miss his incredible brand new hour or comedy!

Dave Thornton

Dave Thornton, Brisbane Powerhouse, May 23-26

After 20 years in the stand-up game and sold out shows across Australia, Dave is celebrating by proving Nothing’s Unpossible in a red-hot hour of unmissable comedy. With his stand-up clips routinely getting millions of views online, there’s guaranteed to be some bangers in this show!

Mel Buttle

Mel Buttle, Brisbane Powerhouse, May 21-26

Brisbane's homegrown talent, Mel Buttle is a regular on The ProjectThe Hundred, Question Everything, and a new contestant on the 2024 series of Taskmaster Australia. She is also everyone’s favourite mum on TikTok. “If you’re looking for an hour full of laughs with no filter, Mel is one to catch.” Scenestr

Geraldine Hickey

Geraldine Hickey, The Princess Theatre, May 24-26

You've see Geraldine on the 2023 Melbourne Comedy Festival GalaThank God You’re here and Have You Been Paying Attention? Now see Gez live on The Princess Theatre stage as part of Brisbane Comedy Festival.

Lloyd Langford

Lloyd Langford, The Tivoli, May 17-18

Lloyd has turned 40 and has simply run out of fucks to give. Come along to the show and witness Lloyd turn his laser sharp brain, and admittedly slow speech, on all and sundry. And put your chubby little hands together and pray you don’t get caught in the crossfire.

Dilruck

Dilruk Jayasinha, The Princess Theatre, May 24-25

Dilruk had a massive 2023 performing to sold out crowds, appearing on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Opening Night Allstars Supershow, and starring in Season 3 of Utopia. He's back on stage at the Brisbane Comedy Festival with an new hour of stand-up that's better than ever!
