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 embracing laughter with You're Joking, which kicked off in February and now returns for another run. The regular event aims to get you in stitches, offering up not only laughs, but some variety on the bill as well. The latter comes courtesy of the show's two-part format: interactive silliness with The Gong Show, with the games changing each time, and then the headline comedian.
Michael Connell is doing the honours in March, 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.
