Just for Laughs

Trevor Noah and Margaret Cho headline the smaller, pointier offshoot of Montreal's prestigious comedy festival, at Sydney Opera House

Now in its 6th year, Just For Laughs is become a comedy fixture for Sydney, bringing big names down under. After last year's Brit invasion, this year's line-up is looking a bit more balanced: so far, the three major names on the bill are South African-born US-based comedian (and host of The Daily Show) Trevor Noah, American Margaret Cho, and Brit talk-show host Alan Carr (Chatty Man).

Also returning this year are the popular All-Star Gala (which tends to sell out) and the six-night Stand Up Series, a clusterf*ck of local and international comedians doing short sets back to back, filmed for The Comedy Channel.

Update: 2nd line-up announcement – featuring Natasha Leggero (CANCELLED), Beardyman, Charlie Pickering and Peter Helliar.

3rd line-up announcement – featuring Julian Clary, with his show The Joy of Mincing.
