February in Brisbane is all about celebrating Asian culture, with the annual BrisAsia Festival brimming with dumpling festivals, tea parties and more. Fancy getting into the fest's vibe while supporting Brisbane's Asian Australian comedians? And, thanks to their comic stylings, giving your stomach muscles a laugh-heavy workout? That's where the fest's BrisAsia Stands Up nights come in.

A heap of local talents who are handy with a joke, or several, are taking to the stage for big evenings of giggles. On Friday, February 2, Jo Gowda is MCing, with Sandeep Totlani, Michael Cho, Josh Coutinho, MJ Wong, Mikee Joaquin and Nan Chen picking up the microphone.

Then, on Friday, February 16, Cho swaps to MC duties, with Gowda, Ting Lim, Ashwin Segkar, Daniel Holt, Jai Selva and Jason Wong among the night's entertainment.

The place to get chuckling: Fortitude Valley's Big Fork Theatre, which you'll find on St Paul's Terrace.

Tickets cost $22.20 for a 90-minute set, which is a small price to pay not only in general, but when you'll go home with a batch of new favourite comedians on your list. Snapping up your seat quickly is recommended, because 2023's event sold out.
