The Laugh Stand is, according to comedian Peter Berner (Triple M, 'BackBerner', 'The Einstein Factor'), " ... More than just a play on words. Much more. It stages some of the best stand up nights going around. Getting booked to perform at The Laugh Stand is one of the few reasons I will put on pants."
So put some pants on, dammit, and support some local talent. Yes, that means putting down the remote control because the Kardashians will be on the IQ when you get home from Harold Park Hotel.
Catch George Smilovici, (who topped the Australian, NZ and USA charts with iconic comedy mantra 'I'm Tuff'), on Tuesday 2 September at 8pm.
Then, on Thursday 4 September at 8.30pm, the reigning 'Queen of Australian Comedy', Fiona O'Loughlin ('Good News Week', 'Spicks and Specks', 'Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation) stars in a very special event.
You couldn't get them at a more appropriate place. Glebe's Harold Park Hotel in Glebe was THE home of Sydney Comedy in the 80's and 90's, hosting international stars like Ben Elton and the late and great Robin Williams, as well as introducing the world to Aussie Comedy Legends like Greg Fleet, Adam Hills, 'Flacco', Bob Downe, Jimeoin and many more. The Harold Park Hotel is one of the "comedic engine rooms" of Sydney, and The Laugh Stand have brought the laughs back to the venue as a monthly event on each first Tuesday, with 2 FOR 1 meals from the pub's bistro to boot (hunger is no laughing matter).
