Two Queers Walk Into a Bar, the project of Brendan Hancock and Jenna Suffern, is back with its biggest edition yet, rolling out the Two Queers Comedy Festival across two weeks for 2024's Mardi Gras. The packed program of laughs and performances is throwing up a little bit of everything, including an opening-night gala, exciting new shows from some of the country's best comedians and an anti-Valentine's Day singles night.

The festival kicks things off with a huge opening night of stand-up on Friday, February 16, at Paddington Town Hall. Nina Oyama (Deadloch, Taskmaster Australia) and Etcetera Etcetera (Drag Race Down Under) lead the lineup alongside Annaliese Constable, Jacinta Gregory, Lou Wall and more.

From there on out, there are plenty of exciting shows to catch. Zoe Coombs Marr is bringing her new set, A Perpetual Work in Progress, to Kinselas Hotel on Saturday, February 24, as part of the festival.

Also on the program are Frankie Fearce, Annaliese Constable, Jordan Barr, Ruby Teys, Gaffy, Aaron Manhattan, Foxy Moron and Aurelia St Clair. Plus, Ange Lavoipierre and Jane Watt's Jazz or a Bucket of Blood (one of Suffern's top picks for last year's Sydney Fringe Festival) will be returning to the Harbour City to appear at the festival on Tuesday, February 20.

Tickets range from $20–50. You can check out the full schedule via Humanitix.
