Sydney Comedy Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

7 May 2021 to 16 May 2021 Annual Event

After a year hallmarked by uncertainty, Sydney’s biggest annual comedy festival is primed to return to from 19th April to 16th May, taking over the city to present the very best of stand-up, sketch and satire from international stars, local legends and fresh Australian talent.

Sydney Comedy Festival’s stellar line-up features internationally acclaimed Daniel Sloss (SCO) who has been given approval to enter the country to participate in the festival.

Sloss will join local comedy legends Adam Hills, Arj Barker, Effie, Fiona O’Loughlin, Jimeoin, Tom Gleeson, and Ross Noble in this year’s program.

A host of much-loved Aussie favourites will keep the laughs rolling with their brand-new shows, including Gen Fricker, Nina Oyama, Cameron James, Lizzy Hoo, Michelle Brasier and Joel Creasey.

The Festival will kick off in grand style with the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala held over three nights and four venues featuring a line-up of hilarious performers who will provide a taste of what is on offer throughout the Festival.

Tickets are on sale now.
