Sydney Comedy Festival 2014 | Upcoming Event | Around Sydney

If there was only one event you could go to in next three months what would it be? I know where I would be and that’s the Sydney Comedy Festival 2014.


The Sydney Comedy Festival is Sydney's biggest annual comedy event and is celebrating it's 10th birthday in 2014. The Festival kicks with two lavish gala events: the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala at the Sydney Opera House and Cracker Night (Sydney's biggest night of comedy) at the Enmore Theatre, Metro Theatre, The Concourse Chatswood, Riverside Theatre and the Seymour Centre.

The bad news is that due to popular demand tickets to the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala at the Sydney Opera House are all SOLD OUT, but the GOOD NEWS is there are still tickets left for Cracker Night so hurry to get your tickets.


Cracker Night will be featuring an awesome line up of the biggest and best Australian legends, international stars and next big things of comedy.

In addition, the Sydney Comedy Festival has just announced on their website its second line up of stand-up comedians with their own shows so get ready to be absolutely spoilt for choice this year!
