Sex, Drugs and Allergies | Suns of Fred

High energy, relentlessly upbeat performance from a talented trio.

Hero Complex | Sammy J

Sammy J is a force to be reckoned with. His live-wire, angular energy could prove exhausting but for the excellence of his clever scripting, impeccable timing and light witty musical interludes.

Toast | Maiden Voyage Theatre Company

Strong examination of family ties and the experience of grief.

Critically Wil | Wil Anderson

Perfect Stranger | Kuah Jenhan

Kuah Jenhan brings a new perspective to Perth Comedy Festival, from Malaysia via Uzbekistan.

2017 Perth Comedy Festival Gala

Showcase of exciting upcoming shows, festival acts putting their funniest feet forward.

Once In Royal David's City | Black Swan State Theatre Company & Queensland Theatre

In this co-production from Black Swan State Theatre Company and Queensland Theatre, love and loss are explored in a riveting performance that pulls out all the stops.
