One of the most popular parts of the Sydney Fringe Festival program, the Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival is all about checking out the new, the emerging and the unexpected. Both upcoming talents and old hands presenting fresh material are among the 100-strong program. And, every night from Tuesday, August 29 till Sunday, October 1, you'll find a bunch at the Factory Theatre, which acts as the comedy festival hub.
"The best way to enjoy Sydney Fringe Comedy is to come down ... grab a drink and something to eat, and then take a chance on a comedian that you've never seen before. We run multiple sessions each night across five venues and we try to keep the ticket prices as low as possible," said program director Shane Smith.
Just some of the big names to have cut their teeth at Sydney Fringe are Aaron Chen (Best Newcomer, Sydney Comedy Festival and MICF 2017), Tom Walker (Best Newcomer, MICF 2016), Rhys Nicholson (Barry Award nominee, MICF 2016) and Ronny Chieng (Director's Choice, MICF 2014, ARIA Awards 2015 nominee and Helpmann Awards 2015 nominee).
Most tickets are a steal, at $10-15. Peruse the program and snap yours up over here.
