Attack of the funnies...

Jackie Loeb (pictured) may look demure but she gets right in your face until the laughter causes tears.

This international comedy star combines her gifts as a singer, actor, vocalist and musician into hilarious stand-up comedy shows. Often accompanied by her guitar, she parodies everyone from Shirley Bassey to contemporary superstars like The Pussy Cat Dolls. She’ll have audiences rolling in the aisles when she plays the Big Joke Comedy Festival in Bangalow, which runs from March 18-21 in the Bangalow A&I Hall.

As well as the main shows, there’s the Village Idiot Stand Up Competition – four heats over the four-day festival.

The first heat kicks off Friday night (March 19) at 6pm. Entry is free and doors open at 5pm.

Following the Village Idiot heat is The Smorgasbord, an evening of hilarity featuring former UK comedian Jeff Green. He’s done a solo West-End season, three full-length UK TV comedy specials and three BBC Radio comedy series. In Australia, he’s appeared on Spicks and Specks, GNW, The Glass House, World Comedy Tour and The Squiz.

Next up is Jackie Loeb. Hold onto ya seats.

MC for the evening is S Sorrensen, a mildly amusing chap with no time to lose.
