Big jokes in Bangers

It’s that time of year again – The Big Joke is back.

The Big Joke Comedy Festival in Bangalow runs from March 18-21.

This year, its fourth, promises to even more side-splitting than before.

As well as shows in the A&I Hall, Bangalow will be invaded by street performers for the weekend – a first for the festival.

The street performers are just one of the free events available this year.

The Village Idiot Stand Up Competition is on again with a prize pool of $800 and treats from Gaia Retreat & Spa up for grabs. (This is a great opportunity for emerging comedians to strut their stuff in front of an appreciative audience. To enter visit www.thebigjoke.com.au or call 6629 1457.)

Featuring at the festival are Tom Gleeson, Peter Berner, Jeff Green, Jackie Loeb and Chris Radburn – as well as local comedians.

Check out the program and buy tickets by visiting www.thebigjoke.com.au.
