It is foreign to think one could laugh and be scared at the same time. The two emotions rarely ever collaborate but a visit to the Frightnight Comedy Theatre Restaurant brings the two together.
With a restaurant nestled in the western regions of Sydney in Liverpool, the restaurant is very secretive in unveiling what occurs beyond its doors. In fact, the website just skims the surface of what is offered to visitors. And why? To maintain an air of mystery for customers. After all, it's better to walk blind behind the dark curtain and experience the unknown. That is if you really want to be spooked.
But here's what is known about the schedule - at 6pm, doors open where visitors are treated to cheeky pre-show entertainment, followed by a nice buffet meal, a 150 minute live show of comedic acts dressed in spooky clothing with a Rocky Horror finale, where performers perform spooky acts in a comedic way.
So if you feel like doing something interesting this Friday or Saturday night, make the journey to the Frightnight Comedy Theatre Restaurant. Take it from me, the restaurant succeeds in making the audience gasp one minute, then laugh the next.
Walking in with the expectation that anything can happen will maximise the excitement of your experience.
