All these comedians have been smashing it in their own right having made acclaimed appearances at fringe and comedy festival both around the country and in international hotspots including Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Festival director, Steven Morgan says the festival is for anyone who appreciates their live comedy with an edge:

This is the biggest year yet for Bris Funny Fest and it’s a cracker – we’ve got something for everyone,” said Morgan.

We’ve gathered a diverse range of comedians and they’re exploring every topic you could want to hear about – how to find or avoid love, Game of Thrones, motherhood, modern masculinity, how to know when you’re an international sex icon and why John Oxley was the mastermind behind Brisbane’s miserable qualities.”
