32 Days of side-splitting laughs
Get ready for giant belly laughs and quiet naughty giggles as the Brisbane Comedy Festival returns to the river city from Friday 21 February until Sunday 22 March 2020.

Held at some of the citie's best performance venues including the Brisbane Powerhouse, Brisbane City Hall, The Tivoli, The Fortitude Music Hall and Newstead Brewing Co., the Brisbane Comedy Festival will feature more than 85 local, national and international comedians.

The Powerhouse

As the Brisbane Powerhouse Artistic Director Kris Stewart said,: "It's been 11 years since Brisbane Comedy Festival first brought the laughs and it's fantastic to see so many new acts making their debut in 2020 alongside stalwarts who have a long history with the city, including Dave Hughes, who performed in the inaugural Brisbane Comedy Festival in 2009."
