Coffee & Comedy
Break up your afternoon with a free cuppa and comedy gig.
February 11, 2020
When the Brisbane Comedy Festival hits town every year, it promises plenty of laughs in plenty of places. Delivering on that aim in 2020, the fest is serving up a dose of giggles and guffaws on weekday afternoons in a variety of cafes around the Brisbane CBD.
From Monday–Friday between Friday, February 21–Thursday, March 5, comedians will be descending on different coffee-swilling joints and breaking out their best jokes between 2–3pm. Think of it as a mid-arvo happy hour, just with live stand-up and whichever caffeinated beverage takes your fancy.
Even better — not only is Coffee & Comedy offering up free laughs, but the first 100 folks through the door for each session will receive a free cuppa as well.
As for who'll be tickling your funny bone, the lineup ranges from Taboo host Harley Breen to Black Comedy writer Craig Quartermaine and 2019 Sydney Comedy Festival best newcomer winner Chris Ryan.
