Laughs aplenty

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

FOR the fourth year run­ning, the Side Split­ter Com­edy Festival is head­ing to Hamil­ton Hill.

This year’s in­car­na­tion of the pop­u­lar stand-up event will run over two week­ends in October and fea­ture a dis­tinctly home­grown line-up.

Head­line acts in­clude Kath and Kim’s Peter Row­sthorn, mu­si­cal par­ody act Janelle Koenig and hyp­no­tist Matt Hale. They will be ac­com­pa­nied by The Moth­er­hood’s 2020 award-win­ning Fringe World show Mums Gone Wild and the re­turn of Side Split­ter favourite trio Suns of Fred.

Festival Di­rec­tor Ju­lian Canny said it was one of the best all-West Aus­tralian line-ups as­sem­bled.

“With our state bor­der still closed, there is no bet­ter time to show­case the best com­edy WA has to of­fer and give some mas­sive sup­port to our local in­dus­try… it’s a win-win in our eyes,” he said.

The festival will run on October 9-10 and 16-17 at Memo­rial Hall in Hamil­ton Hill. See sidesplit­ter.com.au.
