Com­edy fes­ti­val to roll into town

Road­show rolling into town with fresh tal­ent

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

BUCKLE up Whit­sun­days, be­cause the Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Fes­ti­val Road­show is headed to town to de­liver the fresh­est and fun­ni­est from Aus­tralia’s largest com­edy fes­ti­val.

With an all-killer, no-filler cast of Aus­tralian stars, tal­ented new­com­ers and in­ter­na­tional per­form­ers, all your com­edy bases will be cov­ered.

Fea­tur­ing ev­ery­thing from stand-up to sketch, slap­stick to song, each in­di­vid­ual line-up presents the best of the fes­ti­val in one hi­lar­i­ous show.

Ev­ery year a cast of in­trepid en­ter­tain­ers boards the bus and sets its sights on more than 80 des­ti­na­tions across Aus­tralia.

No road is left un­trav­elled and no sides are left un­split, from Dar­win to Devon­port and ev­ery­where in be­tween.

The Whit­sun­days is set to be treated to five co­me­di­ans in­clud­ing MC and Aus­tralian stal­wart Dave Cal­lan and up and comer Andy Saun­ders.

They’ll be joined by a cou­ple of in­ter­na­tional stars in the UK’s Carl Don­nelly, In­dia’s Daniel Fer­nan­des and Sin­ga­porean stand up Sharul Channa.

While the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre re­mains closed un­til fur­ther no­tice due to cy­clone-re­lated is­sues, the Com­edy Fes­ti­val will still go ahead at the Proser­pine RSL.

PEC man­ager Chris Pa­trick said tick­ets would con­tinue be sold through the venue.

“Ev­ery­thing with the Com­edy Fes­ti­val will be the same - it’ll still be our op­er­a­tion, just on at the RSL,” he said.
