I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

A Lucky Dip Of Laughs

The Sydney Comedy Festival is over for 2019, hosting a variety of local and international acts in various venues including the Sydney Opera House, Enmore Theatre and the Factory Theatre. Best Of The Fest is an hour long rapid-fire showcase of comedy that is on five nights a week at the Factory Theatre Festival Hub during the festival. On the night we went, Mickey D hosted eight very different but very funny acts.

The joy of seeing a show like this is the element of surprise as well as the cheap ticket prices. We were familiar with Aaron Chen and the irrepressible rubber-faced Jimeoin, but all the acts were extremely entertaining and our interest in seeing more of their work was piqued.

We were lucky enough to see Chris Ryan (awarded Best Newcomer of the 2019 festival) as well as three international acts from the UK and Scotland and the daggy duo of Double Denim.

For a surprising lot of unexpected laughs, put Best Of The Fest on your entertainment radar for Sydney Comedy Festival 2020
