Story Club is a live storytelling night where Australia’s finest raconteurs sit in a giant armchair and read their true, hilarious stories out of a novelty-sized book.


“It’s all very well claiming to be ‘comedy with a difference’, but can you back it up? Just how different are you? As it turns out, very different.”

Sydney Morning Herald


Story Club favourites includes such notable humans as Annabel Crabb, Rhys Nicholson, Nakkiah Lui, David Marr, Rob Carlton, Ben Jenkins, Zoe Norton Lodge & Christina Keneally to name but eight.


Story Club is now offering a hands-on creative development weekend aimed at inspiring budding storytellers into whipping their work into shape.

The homegrown Story Club Workshop program offers participants a crash course in storytelling with brainstorming sessions, guest tutors, script editing, comedy tips, one-on-one performance direction and the occasional scotch finger biscuit.

The workshop is open to first timers as well as writer/performers wanting to develop their skills further in a supportive and collaborative environment.

The Story Club Workshop takes place over a Saturday and Sunday and culminates in a ticketed event on a Monday evening, where participants showcase their stories in front of a real live audience. Here are the sorts of things past workshoppers have said:


“I love how dynamic this course was. It was a rare combination of being helpful and enjoyable – those two don’t often sit well together.

Sarah Smith, workshop participant


“I had So. Much. Fun.”

Kiri Langford, workshop participant


“I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this course in words.”

Holly McBride, workshop participant
