Laughs Aplenty Coming Our Way!

Let’s face it – if ever there was a year that embodied the term: “If I don’t laugh, I’ll cry,” 2020 is that year.

Thanks to the City of Newcastle sponsored Newcastle Comedy Festival, Novocastrians will soon have the opportunity to laugh long and hard.

Initially scheduled for May, the reformatted Newcastle Comedy Festival will now take place over the weekend of 21 and 22 November and, thanks to COVID (yeah, thanks COVID!), audiences will have not two but four opportunities to see the Gala event.

The Civic Theatre can now host up to 750 people (50 per cent of its capacity) under strict COVID-compliant conditions. Shows will be staged at 3pm and 8pm on both days, with the theatre undergoing a deep cleanse after each performance, ready for the next audience.

The line-ups have had to be adjusted due to the closing of state borders, but the star-studded new bill just proves how many stellar comedians call NSW home.

The Saturday shows on 21 November will be MCed by all-around funnyman Rove McManus and include jokesters such as Becky Lucas, Randy Feltface, and Andy Saunders, while the Sunday show will be MCed by Newcastle-bred Cameron James.

Current ticket holders will be contacted and given their choice of which line-up and which time they’d like to attend, with each performance featuring ten comedians and a superstar MC. For the full line up and to purchase tickets, visit www.civictheatrenewcastle.com.au – and follow the intouch Facebook page @intouchMagazines for details on how you can win yourself tickets!
