The Sydney Comedy Festival
is the harbour city's biggest annual comedy event. For four weeks, every April and May, hundreds of the world's finest comedians take to stages at venues across Sydney to entertain an audience of more than 1000,000. The festival kicks off in grand style with two lavish gala events — the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala at the Sydney Opera House and Cracker Night, Sydney's biggest night of comedy held simultaneously at venues across Sydney. The festival program features performances from the finest Australian acts, the biggest international stars and the most promising emerging talent and offers up everything from stand up to sketch, satire, improv, musical, absurdist, theatre, magic and kids comedy.
