An Asian and an Aboriginal walk into a bar and delight a sold out audience in Bris Funny Fest’s Token Ethnics. Not caring about upholding political correctness, stand-up comedians Ting Lim and Stephanie Tisdell are witty and brutally honest about the way they tell it l...

I’m a huge fan of Lindsay Webb’s observational-style, quick wit, high energy, and clever audience banter. I really like his work. I like him a lot. So, naturally, I had certain expectations when I went to see his show ‘World’s Greatest Exaggerator’ at the Bris Funny Fe...

Champagne is the metaphor for this show, which focuses solely on hedonis...

How many times have you gone to the theatre and the seats are so far away you need binoculars, or you’re seated at such a weird angle, you can only see the performers’ profile? To me, this is a waste of money and I’d prefer to not go at all then sit in a seat with poor...

The first time I saw Carl Barron perform live was at my university ball. A comedian had never made me laugh as hard as he did; from that moment, he became my favourite comedian in the world.

Fast forward many, many years later, and Carl Barron has planned a tour called...
