Everyone loves a comedy festival, but sometimes being so spoiled for comic choice isn't just amusing — it's overwhelming. That's where comedy festival showcases come in. They add laughs to the lulls between annual fests, plus they offer a bite-sized sample of the up-and-coming comedians you might not have seen live yet.
The Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase certainly promises both, serving up the brightest and most buzz-worthy performers from the 2018 event. If it's highlights of hilarity you're after — from international and local funny folks alike — then this is the place to get it.
US comedian Michael Goldsten tops a packed bill, alongside Cam Knight, Greg Sullivan, Chris Ryan, John Cruckshank and Shayne Hunter. Check them out now during one side-splitting show — and for just $39 — before putting their solo shows on your must-see list for the 2019 festival circuit.
