The Flying Cock do beer and chicken well. Beer yoga and boozy barre classes too. The list goes on, including gigs, trivia, watching sport and just hanging out — and, now comedy.
Getting into the funny business, the Fortitude Valley watering hole is launching You're Joking on February 22 — the first of its regular events aiming to get you in stitches. The aim is offer up not only laughs, but some variety on the bill, including the show's two-part format: interactive silliness with The Gong, with the games changing each time, and then the headline comedian.
Three-time Barry nominee Damien Power is doing the honours to get things started, in what The Flying Cock hopes will be more than just your average standup night. Tickets cost $5 on the door — and if you work up an appetite from all that chuckling, don't forget that it's also $3 taco night.
