Comedy Gold Festival
October 12 @ 6:00 pm - 10:45 pm
Gympie’s first local comedy fest is packed full of outrageous LOLs, with performances from both local and internationally renowned comics. Join the Rush Festivals Comedy Gold for a night of fun and laughter in the Civic Centre.
Comedy Gold will kick off with award winning, five star internationally renowned physical comedian Daniel Oldaker aka ‘Dandyman’, and the inimitable circus variety star Rani Huszar. Varietyville takes variety to a whole new level. Bite sized morsels of masterful magic, chaotic clowning, preposterous physical feats, musical mayhem, hilarious hi-jinks and much much more!
Followed by DC Callan, Australia’s only former ASIO agent turned comic. A lot has happened in Intelligence and Security in the last ten years: Trump Putin, Terrorism, Kim Jong Un. DC Callan has the answers – they may not always be the right one, but they are bloody funny.
Comedy Gold will also feature world improv champion Rebecca De Unamuno (The Stand Up Series, Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation, Kath & Kim, Comedy Inc.). Audience suggestions determine the characters and, for a full hour, Rebecca will perform a series of monologues until (somehow!) all three characters’ lives are intertwined.
With sold out shows in Edinburgh, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, Comedians Against Humanity will round out the evening. This show is a favourite with performers and audiences alike! Audiences wielding ‘Cards Against Humanity’ cards challenge Australia’s best improvisers and comedians to create material on the spot. A show not to be missed.
Book your ticket for a night of interactive, inappropriate, improvised fun!
