I’ve been to Theater Sports and I’ve seen The Goodies when they came to Australia a few years ago but I really wanted to see a stand up comedian or show like the comedy festivals you see on TV. The ultimate would of course be in Montreal or Edinburgh or even Melbourne but Sydney will do nicely too. And this was definitely a big enough event to cross #16 off my bucket list.
The Sydney Comedy Festival started on 11-April and is running until 08-May. Hub bought tickets to the opening night event, called “Cracker Night”, for my 40th birthday back in February and we’ve been wondering who’ll be performing ever since.
We were not disappointed!

In fact this gig was advertised as an all ages gig …..
we were so pleased we DID NOT bring Graviee!
There were about a dozen Local and International acts….I hope I have listed them all here, sorry if I missed anyone. Anyway I’m going to use a 5 ♥ rating system so I don’t keep repeating myself saying HILARIOUS and BRILLIANT and FABULOUS and TOO FUNNY and AWESOME, although I probably still will. So in no particular order they were….
