You won’t be laughing if you miss out on tickets for the Brisbane Comedy Festival…

The people of Brisbane have spoken, or at least their wallets have, as ticket sales for the Brisbane Comedy Festival are flying out the door.

Some of the biggest names in Australian comedy to attend this year’s Brisbane Comedy Festival are being snapped up, so get in fast to secure yours.

Wil Anderson’s new stand up hour Wiluminati is selling fast ahead of his return from the US for a six-night season. Brisbane Comedy Festival first timer Cal Wilson’s show It Could Have Been Me, which is an hour show of characters and alter-egos based on the way her life might have been is also starring at the box office.

Tom Gleeson, who oftens finds himself in a full theatre when not on telly, is fast filling up the Powerhouse Theatre with aptly named show Quality. And Tom Ballard has clearly been missed in the comedy circuit- having just finished hosting Triple J breakfast for four years, he heads to Brisbane to wow audiences with a brand new stand up show titled UnAustralian(ish).

More comedians that are also born storytellers will grace the festival, including Hannah Gadsby, Peter Helliar and Sarah Kendall.

For those hoping to see some home-grown or local talent, Damien Power and Mel Buttle should definitely be on the radar.

If you’re looking for something a little left-field, weird or wonderful, try out The Naked MagiciansFrank Woodley or Sam Simmons.

There are a whopping 43 acts on the bill this year, with there likely to be something to humour every Brisbane funny bone. Check out the Brisbane Comedy Festival line up here.
