Comedy festival to roll into town
Roadshow rolling into town with fresh talent
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.
International Comedy Festival is the biggest comedy festival in Australia and one of the biggest in the world.
The organisers would like to warn that performances often contain coarse language, sexual references and material that can offend therefore it is recommended for people aged 15 years or older.
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.
