The various State RAW Comedy Finals are occurring or have just happened…Red Card Comedy returns to the Roxbury Hotel in Glebe next Saturday…Impro Melbourne is taking bookings for their next Actors Only Impro Workshops…The All New Grudge Match Comedy Football season 2009 has kicked off in Brisbane…The current (last ever?) season of Impro Vice in Hobart finishes up on Thursday night
The festival runs from Fri 6 March to Saturday 28 March, and curator Josh Thomas has put together a packed program. The Brisbane Comedy Festival will feature Adam Hills, Tim Minchin, Dave Hughes and Danny Bhoy, as well as Hannah Gadsby, David Eastgate and Hooray for Everything, plus many more performers. Response has been enthusiastic, with Dave Hughes and Adam Hills already adding extra shows to cope with ticket demand.

So for those of us who don’t live in Adders, this week is the last chance to catch some of these people around the traps for a month or more.
