One of the most outrageous events on Sydney's cultural calendar is the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala, which returns this April. Selling out for the previous six years, the 14th Gala will surely be no different with another surprise comedic lineup set to feature many of the 2018 festival's headline acts.
While those performing at the 2018 Gala remains a tightly held secret, last year's event saw 15 comic talents take to the stage and serve up their best bits in five minutes of rapid-fire laughs. A riotous hit, the night featured some great local talent punctuating a lineup of standout international acts — including Stephen K Amos, Mae Martin and Jason Byrne.
This year's event kicks off the 2018 Sydney Comedy Festival in style, with two special nights at the Sydney Opera House. With galas also being held at the Enmore Theatre, the Riverside Theatre and The Concourse, there's really no excuse to miss out.
Once the Gala is over, don't forget about the 210-plus comedy shows that are part of the full Sydney Comedy Festival. Being held across Sydney, from April 23 until May 20, the festival will be headlined by Ross Noble (UK), David O'Doherty (IRE) and Australia's own Kitty Flanagan just to name a few.
To celebrate the return of the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala, we're giving away two double passes to the Sydney Opera House event on Tuesday, April 24 at 8pm.
