Sydney Comedy Festival 2021
Local and international comedic greats are descending on Sydney to deliver a jam-packed program of laughs.
If you're in need of a few chuckles after the year that was 2020, then you're in the right place this month. The Sydney Comedy Festival has a bumper edition on offer in 2021, delivering non-stop laughs from a roll-call of local and international comedic talent.
From Monday, April 19, to Sunday, May 16, venues across the city will play host to a program of side-splitting stand-up, improv, theatre, magic and more. Returning favourites include the always huge Sydney Comedy Festival Gala, which hits the State Theatre, The Concourse and the Enmore Theatre to kick things off on April 19, 20 and 21. Whichever date and venue you choose, expect an outrageous night of on-stage antics from a star-studded cast of festival greats and emerging stars.
Across the month-long gest, you'll also be able to catch solo shows from legends like Ross Noble, Tom Gleeson, Alice Tovey, Joel Creasey, Tom Ballard, Geraldine Hickey, Tommy Little, Akmal, Arj Barker and stacks more. Or, you can sink your teeth into a full comedic feast, with festival showcase sessions at the likes of The Comedy Store and The Grounds of Alexandria.
Elsewhere, Unplanned Melodies delivers a hilarious improv cabaret show, award-winning act Tahir fuses stand-up with some amateur magic to amusing effect, and you'll even find a satirical musical production based on the life of Schapelle Corby.
