The Hobart Comedy Festival features comedy artists from Australia and overseas. It is the comedy world’s favourite boutique event – featuring comedy act combinations you cannot see performing together anywhere else in the world. Each year the festival selects rising stars from overseas and brings them to Hobart so audiences can say “we saw them before they were famous…”
Each year the festival selects the cream of the crop of Australia’s comedy artists, including expat Tasmanians now excelling on the national comedy circuit. World class wine, beer and snacks along with world class laughs – the perfect winter warmer! The Hobart Comedy Festival is in its ninth year. It has launched numerous Tasmanian comedians to global and national careers as well as showcased to Tasmania an array of famous and aspiring Australian and international comedians.
The Hobart Comedy Festival is unique, being a programmed event in which performers only appear by invitation. It creates combinations of artists unique and unseen anywhere else in the world to provide audiences with as many comedic styles and experiences as possible.
“The Hobart Comedy Festival was re-launched successfully in July 2010 after a short break and was an instant hit. It may be small – but it is dynamic, and the people attending, not just locals, but from across Australia and from overseas, really fell in love with it,” said Craig Wellington, the Producer of the Hobart Comedy Festival. “We look forward to 2011 with gusto, and its exciting because we?re in our ninth year and that means there?s a 10th
anniversary just around the corner.”
