2020 may be well and truly behind us, but that doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to a dose of fun and laughter right about now. So, whilst we still can’t escape overseas, and you’ve nearly exhausted all suitable binge-worthy series – why not experience a night of live comedy with some of the country’s best comedians?
The annual GC Laughs Festival is on its way back to Home of the Arts (HOTA) at Bundall this month between Saturday 13th and Sunday 21st of March and promises a hilarious line-up of homegrown heroes and comedic talent, set to have audiences falling out of their seats – even though they’ve paid for them.
GC Laughs Festival Director Josh Armstrong said Gold Coasters are well overdue for a laugh this March as the comedy festival returns for a third year, set to be bigger, better and funnier than ever before. “We’re hosting five huge nights of real, raw and straight up riotous comedy, with talent from far and wide landing on the Gold Coast,” he said.
“The line-up we’re showcasing is truly sensational and following over 8,000 comedy fans joining us at HOTA in 2019, we can’t wait to see the local community embrace comedy once again.”
GC Laughs Festival welcomes to the Gold Coast Australian comedy legends Joel Creasey, Tommy Little, Fiona O’Loughlin, and Gen Fricker who will take to the stage alongside some of the best local and international acts.
With global sold-out performances, a headline act at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe, and many TV appearances such as Ten’s ‘I’m a Celebrity Get me Out of Here’ and Nine’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’, Fiona O’Loughlin returns for another year with her new act set to be a showstopper.
On the same evening as Joel Creasey, you can catch Neel Kolhatkar, Craig Quartermaine, Sam Taunton, Women Like Us, Dan Rath, Hot Department, and Tommy Little.
And trust us when it comes to comedy with no limits, Tommy Little takes no prisoners; ready to give the Gold Coast a glimpse into his real-life antics, foolish and funny as hell, for a hot night of comedy.
The GC Laughs Gala kicks off the festival on Saturday 13th March for the biggest night of comedy on the Gold Coast, hosted by Australian cultural and big-time comedy icon, Heath Franklin Chopper.
Rounding out the festival on Sunday 21st March is South Africa’s hilarious Dusty Rich who will be bringing his twice sold-out insanity manifestation ‘The Dusty Rich Comedy Circus’ – a weird and wild show, set to take the audience on an insane ride to close the GC Laughs Festival 2021.
Tickets are on sale now so don’t miss out – because that wouldn’t be very funny!
