Kyran Wheatley and Rhys Nicholson Presents:

Every year the country’s best comedians need a place to work on the jokes that will become the incredible sets you see on the television. In fact, we probably should have had them done by now. But we haven’t, which is why ‘Comedy(ish)’ exists.


In light of the extensive damage caused by the Australian bush fires in recent months, all proceeds of the Comedy(ish) shows will each be donated to an organisation working towards relief and regeneration in areas that have been affected by this environmental catastrophe. Links below for more information or opportunities to donate more.

So come see your future favourite jokes take form, and support some incredible organisations while you’re at it before we get to charge unreasonable amounts of money for tickets to our shows.


Show starts at 7pm with a lineup of the best comedians the country has to offer trying out their newest material, often for the very first time. Then after a short break, one brilliant comedian treats us to their full Work In Progress show. Expect notes. Expect nerves. Expect laughs.

Lineups subject to big name drop ins! And the occasional drop out.
