It's a scientific fact that you can't have too much laughter — or if it isn't, it really should be. Giggling is good for you. A hearty laugh is a heck of a good workout. And checking out the hilarious stylings of up-and-coming comedians doesn't just offer amusement for eager audiences, but supports aspiring talent.
That's what's on offer at Bris Funny Fest, which returns for a fourth year of rib-tickling, side-splitting fun. From Wednesday, August 7 to Sunday, September 1, the fringe comedy festival will showcase a huge array of comic stylings — including recognisable names such as Mel Buttle and Nick Cody, and a whole host of others that just might become household fodder in the future.
Across more than 100 shows, there'll be something to tickle your funny bone — and more sketches than Saturday Night Live has ever aired. Okay, so the last one is a bit of an exaggeration, but whatever kind of comedy you're looking for, you'll probably find it across a range of Brissie venues during the festival.
