Do you need a laugh right now?

Bring your mates and join The Orangutan Project at Sydney’s premier comedy venue for a night of hilarity with Comedy for a Cause.

The evening features three comedians strutting their stuff plus a raffle with many awesome prizes you’ll want to walk away with. The event will raise much needed funds for The Orangutan Project to save, rescue and rehabilitate orangutans and protect their rainforest homes.

So it’s time to laugh and make the world a better place at the same time!



Our outstanding lineup of comedians bring years of experience making people laugh.
