Most of us will have laughed as babies, even before we could speak, and laughter continues to bond us with our family and friends as we age. Research has even proved that laughter is good for us: for both our health and our relationships.

Now in its 12th year, the Brisbane Comedy Festival will run dozens of comedy acts over 3 venues between Friday the 16th July- Sunday 8th August 2021

The 2021 program will be across 3 venues, Brisbane Powerhouse, The Fortitude Music Hall and the Tivoli.

Comedy and teens 

High school can be stressful and laughter can be a great stress reliever for teens. If you have a budding stand up comic in the family, it’s time for them to start sharpening their wit and practising their routine on their most honest critics – their family! A great way to introduce them to comedy is to head along to the festival with them in tow and show them the variety of comedy on offer!
