Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Our city's annual lolfest is celebrating its 15th birthday in 2019 with a massive line-up of local and international acts
Sydney Comedy Festival takes over key Inner West venues – including the Enmore Theatre and Factory Theatre – for a month from April to May, with a line-up of international, local and interstate comedians across all genres. While not quite as big as its Melbourne counterpart, the Sydney Comedy Festival is still packed with goodies – in fact, plenty of high-profile acts head straight from Melbourne to Sydney each year, and they've generally perfected their sets by the time they get here.
This year includes international favourites Arj Barker, Daniel Sloss, David O'Doherty, Des Bishop, Fern Brady, Joe Lycett, Larry Dean, Ross Noble and Stephen K Amos.
The locals include Akmal, Aaron Chen, Alice Fraser, Becky Lucas, Cal Wilson, Dave Hughes, Demi Lardner, Effie, Felicity Ward, Joel Creasey, Matt Okine and Rhys Nicholson.
