out-of-body experience and enter any of Brisbane's comedy
The city's comedy bars have the reputation of not failing
to laugh so hard they could almost rapture their
own internal organs.
Here's an overview to some of the most famous comedy bars in
Albion Comedy Club and Restaurant is the biggest comedy club
in Australia, and probably one of the biggest in the world.
It is located at Sandgate Road and is near the Breakfast
Creek and only a few
kilometers way from the Central Business District.
Albion's line-up of comedians is composed of an
all-professional local, interstate and international
comedian. Every night, five or six comedians will light up a
show wherein they will surely bust your wits and tickle your
Albion boasts its spacious and luxurious room that allows
its guests to mingle and also a place for people to dance
the night away after every show.
For June 2008, Albion's line-up of comedians are Greg
Sulivan, who is the host of the Triple M Breakfast Show,
Brendan Lovechild, Casey Talbot,
Davo from NBC's Last Comic Standing and Matt Marr.
Another world class comedy bar is Dockside Comedy Bar
located at the bottom of the Dockside hotel building, on
Ferry Street Kangaroo Point.
Dockside is by far the longest running comedy venue in
Brisbane, having been in the business since 199, and has
been continuously offering its
visitors a Friday and Saturday dose of the greatest laughs
just next the relaxing atmosphere of the Brisbane River. One
great trivia about the bar is
that the place has been a catapulting location for Eric
Bana's entertainment career. The now serious and
widely-acclaimed actor has been performing regularly in the
bar way back before booking his own comedy program, "Eric"
in 1997. Other famous alumni of the Dockside Comedy Bar are
Judith Lucy, Carl Barron, Jimeoin and Mick Molloy.
Paddington also has its own taste of comedy magic via The
Sit Down Comedy Club which is also one of Australia's major
producers of stand up comedy. The comedy bar has been in its
present location in McGuire Paddo Tavern since 2000. It
features different Queensland-based, national and
international performers every week. The Sit Down Comedy
Club also accepts bookings for other venues in Queensland,
such as parties, staff dinners, awards nights, conferences,
and other corporate events. Among the bar's popular stand-up
comedians are Steve Allison, Judith Lucy, Mike van Acker,
Lindsay Webb, Meshel Laurie, Kitty Flanagan and many more.
