At the start of every year Australia’s best comedians need to try their new material ahead of the comedy festival season. Why not have them try it on you?

Peel back the curtain in this intimate setting and see the very very best try the very very fresh – could be shit, could be the first time anyone hears a joke that ends up on the Comedy Festival Gala.


Expect scribbled notes. Expect nerves. Expect laughs, as the comedians tell it for the first time.


Previous guests include Becky Lucas, Wil Anderson, Sam Campbell, Rove McManus, Fran Middleton, Reggie Watts, Corey White, John Cruckshank, Katie Burch, Michael Hing, Matt Okine, Zoe Coombs Marr, Justin Hamilton, Kate Coates, Merrick Watts, Tom Ballard, Michael Workman, Penny Greenhalgh, Ray Badran, James Acaster (UK), Josie Long (UK), Mae Martin (CAN), Steen Raskopoulos, Susie Youssef, Luke Heggie, Adrienne Truscott (USA), Josh Earl, Gen Fricker, Rhys Nicholson, Kyran Wheatley and more.


6:30pm - Doors.

7:00pm - Lineup Show

8:30pm - Work In Progress (WIP)


With so few tickets (we don't want to try out jokes on a massive crowd) Comedyish is always sold out.


This is a comedy experience is like no other.

Presented by Kyran Wheatley and Rhys Nicholson.

Giant Dwarf Theatre is 199 Cleveland Street, Redfern, Sydney. Nearest train stations are Central and Redfern.
