On Tuesday night there's a sweet line up of free comedy happening at a plush bar in Toorak darling, in the old Trak Centre as a matter of fact. "Free" and "comedy" are my two favourite words and together they make for a wonderful night out of laughs and liquor at Sugar Lounge, 8 Jackson Street, Toorak.
Sugar Laughs is Toorak's only weekly comedy night featuring 12 comedians over 2 hours and you can catch some of the sharpest, freshest open-mic funny men and women performing with a mixed bag of consummate gagsters Tuesdays from 8.30pm.
Then on the last Tuesday of every month Super Sugar Showcase shows-off a number of the best darn emerging and professional comedians from round the traps, for only ten bucks.
The main Sugar Lounge bar is swish and subdued, dimmed New York style with a civilized smoking area in the ventilated back bar that usually has a hot poker game in progress. Happy hour from 7pm offers cheap drinks and jugs, meal specials, and complimentary finger food keeps the punters happy all night.
Your hosts, Kurly and Damian, are friendly, funny and committed to putting on a great night of comedy.
Check out the impressive weekly line up on Facebook, get on the number 8 tram from the city or park at the rear any Tuesday night, and discover this sweet spot.
