Bris Funny Fest

Comedy from Brisbane's Fringe

Bris Funny Fest is a festival that celebrates the breadth of comedy talent that Brisbane has to offer. 

It is a festival that showcases everything from established international artists to emerging performers putting on a show for the first time. 

The festival organisers support new talent by promoting the festival to venues, promoters and the media to help new talent stage shows. 

The Brisbane Funny Fest also welcomes established artists willing to share their skills and experience with newer acts through workshops or mentor arrangements. 

Our goals are to

  • Foster and promote new material and emerging comedians in Brisbane.
  • Promote different kinds of comedy as forms of entertainment that should be nurtured and celebrated by everyone.
  • Skill share performance development, marketing and audiences.
  • Reach out to industry professional and connected stakeholders to assist the development of Brisbane’s thriving comedy scene.
