It’s finally happening – that’s right the Byron Comedy Festival is about to setoff to a flying start tonight for three days of fun, laughter and outrage at the Byron Surf Club.

From a late-night comedic burlesque show (Show Us Ya Wits) on Saturday to Breakfast on Sunday with Denise Scott to a brand-new show for the whole family with Joel Salom, and a hardcore closing session with a comedy debate where six comics there is plenty for everyone on offer.

There will be 12 shows over three days with everything from stand up, funny kids and the Best Of British to Laughter Yoga and more!

The program is full of internationally accomplished comics the likes of Glenn Robbins & Peter Rowsthorn (Kath & Kim), Dave O’Neil (Spicks & Specks), Denise Scott (Dancing with the Stars), Dave Thornton (The Project), UK stars Bob Franklin, Jeff Green & Dan Willis… and the list goes on.

Go to Byron Comedy Fest for all the info. Tickets are limited!
