The Just for Laughs Festival 2015 is kicking off in Sydney this October. With the likes of Russel Brand, Wil Anderson, and Danny Bhoy attending, make sure you get in quick before all the tickets are gone!
Some people say laughter is the best medicine. Well that’s bullshit, by all accounts morphine is in a league of its own. But even if laughter isn’t the best medicine, it’s definitely the best thing to do no matter who you are.
Now some of the best bars in Sydney have the funniest people going around every week, but the comedy we’re talking about is big. Real big. The Just for Laughs Festival, Sydney is gonna be making people do little wee’s in their pants from the 19th-25th of October in amazing venues such as The Sydney Opera Playhouse, Concert Hall, and State Theatre.
With the comedy legends performing (both local and international) that I’m about to list, I could pretty much end the article at that, having sold you already… but I won’t, I’ll write some more underneath – so keep reading… please.
Russell Brand, Tommy Tiernan, Danny Bhoy, John Bishop, Stephen K. Amos, Al Murray, Omid Djalili, Sammy J & Randy, Dave Hughes, Wil Anderson, Celia Pacquola, Akmal, Hannah Gadsby, Lehmo, Cal Wilson, Rhys Nicholson –
Breath in and –
Lawrence Mooney, Mel Buttle, Steen Raskopoulos, Joel Creasey, Tommy Dean, Gen Fricker, Ari Shaffir, Tommy Little, Karl Chandler, Gretel Killeen, Em Rusciano, Tom Ballard, Demi Lardner, Felicity Ward, Damien Power, Michael Workman, Randy, Anne Edmonds, Corey White and Steve Hughes.
Some people might be reading this and thinking, “you’re an idiot, why would you waste so much webpage on a list of names?”
Only because each and every one of those names are proven, superstar comedians that will rock your socks.
The Just for Laughs Festival is sure to be a massive week. Sides will be split. ROFL’s shall be had. People will snort.
So if you’re having a pretty shitty month, or you’re searching around for what’s on this October, then treat yourself to a good time and get along to the Just for Laughs Festival. Just remember, if you’re genuinely sick then go to hospital, laughter can only do so much.
