Monday nights in the world's most liveable city are now filled with laughs thanks to live stand up comedy across various venues. Start with the 5 minutes burst of comedians by Quick Bites Comedy at Boney and work your way to Spleen Bar. This popular work week drinking hole is known for its affordable drinks and snacks in a cosy lounge-like environment, and even more for its Monday night live stand up comedy.
Comedy at Spleen is touted as one of the city's best comedy nights judging from the crowd packing the place every single Monday. You have to arrive 30 minutes early just to get a seat in the 60-person venue. The regular line up includes a mixture of big name acts and entry level comics eager for their first break in the comedy scene.
Past acts who have graced the venue include Jimeoin, Wil Anderson, Arj Barker, Adam Hills, Dave Hughes, Tom Gleeson, Todd Barry (US), Fiona O'Loughlin, Charlie Pickering, Greg Fleet, Lawrence Mooney, Corinne Grant, Lehmo and many others. A gold coin donation will get you enough laughs to kick off your work week.
