This is the first of its kind and will bring a week of laughs!
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, in association with Frontier Comedy, are proud to present the inaugural Mardi Gras Comedy Festival.
One of Australia’s most famous and well-loved events, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras brings thousands of visitors to Sydney to join in the celebrations.
Kicking off on 28 February with the first ever Mardi Gras Comedy Gala, the Mardi Gras Comedy Festival will bring comedians from all over the world to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras for a week in February and March.
Em Rusciano and Bob Downe will host a night of riotous and outrageous laughter at the Comedy Gala that includes an incredible line-up of talent including Bridget Everett, Hannah Gadsby, Axis of Awesome, and more!
A week of solo shows from six world class acts will follow the Comedy Gala. In the spirit of the 2017 Mardi Gras theme of ‘creating equality’, there will be a show for everyone! From the drag Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss, outrageous cabaret icon Bridget Everett, America’s most famous Tupperware lady Dixie Longate, author, singer and comedian extraordinaire Em Rusciano, and a ‘Gaymes Night’ hosted by razor sharp Rhys Nicholson and Joel Creasey.
Frontier Comedy are thrilled to be joining forces with Mardi Gras in 2017 to bring the very best from the world of comedy down under to celebrate love, diversity & pride.
