World's Funniest Island

Home > Sydney > Comedy | Festivals
Published October 1st 2009
The World's Funniest Island will soon be in Sydney Harbour, temporarily taking the title away from the moderately funny Shag Island and the positively hilarious Intercourse Island.

The old colonial prison and naval dockyard of Cockatoo Island from October 17-18, as part of Crave Sydney, will be transformed into a circus of laughter. The unique buildings, parklands, tunnels and an old bomb shelter will be used as stages for more than 200 performances by local and international comedians.

The two day comedy event will follow the format of a music festival with plenty of cool bars, good food and quirky market stalls scattered throughout the Island.

Aussie favourites like Merrick and Rosso, Akmal and Jimeoin will take the stage.

Joining them will be a high profile line-up of international stars such as British comedy legends, The Goodies and Alexei Sayle.

Trio US Muslim comics, Allah Made Me Funny, who had sell-out London shows will also be making a special appearance.

And for the first time, in a world exclusive, Pakistan’s only English-speaking stand-up comedian, Sami Shah, will make his international debut.

Ensuring that every part of your body is aching of laughter, comical chefs will also have a cook-off match with Bitchin Kitchen. The hilarity will continue on with funny and filthy stories of Erotic Fan Fiction and over at Dr Sketchy’s Anti Class for the world's only burlesque drawing class.

And the great news is that World's Funniest Island will return as annual spring event.

Tickets to the event are not cheap, but include access to all shows plus a ferry trip to and from the island. One day tickets are $119.90 and two day tickets are $209.90. Ticket purchases can be made through Ticketek online or call 13 28 49.
