If you're in need of a few chuckles after the last couple of years, then Sydney has you covered across April and May. The Sydney Comedy Festival has a bumper edition on offer in 2022, delivering non-stop laughs from an impressive lineup of local and international comedic talent.
From Monday, April 25–Sunday, May 22, 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, Riverside Theatre, the Enmore Theatre and The Concourse to kick things off from Tuesday, April 26–Thursday, April 28. 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 fest, you'll also be able to catch solo shows from the likes of Mark Watson, Judith Lucy, Denise Scott, Aaron Chen, Natali Caro, Oliver Twist, Wil Anderson, David O'Doherty, Gabbi Bolt, Melanie Bracewell, Ross Noble, Rhys Nicholson, Nazeem Hussain and stacks more.
Elsewhere, Two Queers Walk Into a Bar is holding its regular showcase of queer comedians hosted by Jenna Suffern and Brendan Hancock, with performances from AJ Lamarque, Marlena Dali and Lily Starr. Also, former Triple J hosts Matt Okine and KLP will be bringing their family-friendly musical group Diver City to The Comedy Store. And, that's where you'll also find Dragon Friends — the DND podcast featuring the likes of Alex Lee, Michael Hing and Ben Jenkins, with live music from Tom Cardy.
