It's one of those ideas that makes you think "surely someone's already done this before?". Something so simple yet instantly appealing and targetted to the brown snake-loving city we call Brisbane.

Well it has been done before, just last month in fact, and after two sell-out shows, Brisburn returns for a one off show as part of Bris Funny Fest.

The show's full title is Brisburn - Sketch Comedy re: BNE and features a number of sketches which take a light-hearted view of Brisvegas and its nuances. Whether it's our questionable town planning, John Oxley or suburb rivalries, this is a comedy that will hit closer to home than most.

Everything from Ashgrove to Ascot

The man behind it, Mark Lombard, has been a behind-the-scenes player in a large amount of Brisbane's prolific sketch comedy, whether on stage or on camera. He's a man with a great comic sense and more than enough experience to know what works and what doesn't.

Whether you've been in the city for 5 weeks or 5 decades, there'll be something for everyone in this show. Swoop your tickets like a magpie before it's too late!
