Silent Comedy Festival
This stand-up series sees laughs from some top Aussie comedians, delivered via headphones.
The laughs are served up a little differently at The Arbory's annual MICF series, the Silent Comedy Festival. Returning for another round of hilarious stand-up showcases from Thursday, March 25, the fan favourite event sees some of Australia's top comics taking to the riverside stage to perform...in total silence. Or at least, that's how it appears from the outside.
Rather, audience members enjoy the stand-up acts through noise-cancelling headphones, in a similar vibe to what you'd expect from a silent disco. Running Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights throughout MICF (until April 15), the Silent Comedy shows will each feature a trio of side-splitting comedians, with the likes of Jimeoin, Dolly Diamond, Lawrence Mooney and Katie Burch included in this year's lineup.
Tickets are $25, which gets you an evening full of chuckles, plus a pair of headphones to use for the night. And if you fancy some refreshments, you'll also find a $25 MICF burger and beer special, teaming your pick of Arbory burger with a schooner of Mountain Goat summer ale.
