Presented by Fluke Comedy and Giant Dwarf
1. Sudden uncontrollable fear or anxiety, often causing wildly unthinking behaviour.
2. General feeling amongst comedians about this time of year.
The comedy festival season is just around the corner and our best comedians need somewhere to write and try their new jokes. So Sydney’s favourite new material night returns to Giant Dwarf Theatre every Wednesday in January and February.
See the best of the best trial their new jokes ahead of the Comedy Festivals season.
This is truly a comedy show like no other. Peel back the curtain in this intimate setting and see the very very best try the very very fresh – could be shit, could be the first time anyone hears a joke that ends up on the Comedy Festival Gala. Expect notes. Expect nerves. Expect laughs.
