March Comedy show at Buddy’s

It’s time to spread the word about our March comedy show at Buddy’s.

We’ve had a huge year so far with sold out shows in Jan and Feb, the trend will easily continue with this stellar line-up of comedians.

More info and tickets are available here and there is a complimentary drink with every ticket purchased.

If you’re looking for something to do on a Thursday night i’m involved in running this as well, this one is weekly, Buddy’s Comedy is Monthly.

Line-up for the March comedy show at Buddy's in Newtown

Mic in Stand

Mic in Stand is bringing live stand-up comedy back to the Friend in Hand hotel in Glebe on Thursday nights for another weekly comedy room. Sydney’s premier independent comedy night is back at it’s old home. All shows feature a professional MC and headliner, all supported by a heavily curated diverse range of the best comedy talent available.

Every Thursday night. Upstairs at the Friend. Doors open at 7:30pm and we kick off at 8:00pm sharp. 52 Cowper Street Glebe

If you want to check out another gig i’m involved in running (it’s monthly and I host monthly) check out Buddys Comedy 2024. There will be a new post shortly and 2024 is shaping up to be a banger.

Buddys Comedy 2024

From Jan onwards Buddys Comedy 2024 show’s will be moving to the 2nd Wednesday of the month. 7:30pm – 9:15pm, 391 King Street Newtown, Upstairs at Buddys Bar.

Now that the show is monthly the format has changed a little. I will still be the regular host, and the first half of the show will still be packed full of professional comics and fantastic newcomers doing some of their best stuff and trying out some new gear. The 2nd half of the show will now feature only a Headliner, doing an extended set.

As there are only 12 shows for the year we are aiming for bigger events and booking the comedians accordingly. Febs date falls on Valentines day and love it or hate it we will have every perspective on it covered. Perfect for singles and couples.

March is at the end of Mardi Gras so we are having an end of Mardi Gras Comedy Spectacular, featuring some of the best LGBTQIA+ comedians on the scene.

And seeing as January is our first official show back under the new format, we are going in hard to make sure we kick things off with a bang.The first half of the show is jammed with some of the best headlining comedians in their own right, and the actual headliner for the show is Peter Berner. Not only has he had a successful media career that launched from his stand-up, he has always been regarded as a comedian’s comedian and the one that all of the comedians go to watch. He makes it look effortless, and his experience, ability and comedy instincts make him the perfect act to kick off our new format.

Information and tickets are available for this show, and the two mentioned above by clicking the image below, or here. Free beer or wine with every ticket purchased.

Hopefully at some point we’ll catch you at a Buddys Comedy 2024.
