The punchline is here

The Big Joke Comedy festival is on this weekend (Thursday to Sunday, March 18-21) at the Bangalow A&I Hall. Each day of the festival offers some fresh and funny treat.

Jackie Loeb, Peter Berner, Tom Gleeson, Jeff Green, the Axis of Awesome (pictured), Vanessa Wagner and local comedians are all performing.

As well as main stage performances by these funsters, there are other interesting and humorous events at the festival.

Funny Kids is a comedy workshop for children culminating in a live performance at the A&I Hall. Comedienne Mandy Nolan will take 30 kids (ages 8-16) through a three-day workshop and some intensive training, and then give them their first go at the mic in front of an audience. Mandy teaches kids how to turn their every day struggles and adversities into stand-up comedy.

There’s also the Village Idiot competition, where aspiring comics can strut their stuff. The heats are run in the Festival Bar in the hall. The grand final on Sunday will be hosted by Tom Gleeson. Lots of fun.

Then there’s the Cracked Eggs Comedy Breakfast on Sunday morning. Here, the audience gets to enjoy top class comedy over a hot breakfast and glass of champagne.

MC for the breakfast is local comedian Ellen Briggs, who’ll pave the way for Chris Radburn, Jackie Loeb and Tom Gleeson.
