Big laughs for Sugar Wharf

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Jessie Tol­son

AF­TER two years of sold out shows at Port Dou­glas Car­ni­vale, The Big Laugh is re­turn­ing for the hat­trick later this month and is promis­ing one of the fun­ni­est fes­ti­val events to ever hit the stage.

This year’s line up in­cludes the com­i­cal stylings of lo­cal MC Matt Mann, award win­ning stand-up co­me­dian, writer and broad­caster Greg Sul­li­van and Aus­tralia’s ‘‘new God­dess of com­edy’’, mother-of-five Mandy Nolan.

The win­ner of the Par­rot­fish Lodge Open Mic Com­edy night will also fea­ture on the bill for this hi­lar­i­ous evening of naughty adults-only laughs.

Melinda-Kim Nor­ris from Fes­ti­vals Up North said Car­ni­vale is all about fun, and The Big Laugh will bring plenty of it.

‘‘It is ob­vi­ous that Port Dou­glasians loves a good laugh, and as long as the pun­ters keep turn­ing up to The Big Laugh, we will keep putting com­edy on the bill at Port Dou­glas Car­ni­vale,’’ she said. ‘‘The line-up this year is very ex­cit­ing. ‘‘Matt Mann from Cairns is a reg­u­lar at the Big Laugh and our host for the night and it’s great to get that lo­cals’ per­spec­tive of our very quirky eclec­tic re­gion and its peo­ple.

‘‘Greg ‘Sully’ Sul­li­van is renowned for a very con­tro­ver­sial ca­reer as a ra­dio an­nouncer at Triple M and will be shar­ing his se­crets of life and love with us. ‘‘Mandy Nolan is ter­ri­bly dev­il­ish.’’ The Big Laugh will be held at the Sugar Wharf on Thurs­day, May 23, open from 7pm for an 8pm show start.

Tick­ets are avail­able from Good­ies Cafe in Moss­man or Ori­gin Cafe in Port Dou­glas for $35, on­line at www.fes­ti­val­sup­north.com for $33.50 or $40 at the door.
