Every year, the performers, the publicists and Sydney’s busiest partygoers meet up after the Cracker Night Opening Galas for some serious schmoozing. Courtesy of 6dc PR, here is a selection of snaps from the evening:
Guest blogger Lokimee will be seeing 40 or so shows at the Sydney Comedy Festival in 25 days. Last night was her first show – Cracker Night at the Metro.
Cracker Night goes wild tonight with simultaneous gala performances at Enmore Theatre, Metro Theatre, the Seymour Centre and NIDA Parade Theatre, Kensington. And the Enmore Theatre show is being broadcast live on Main Event, too.
Make sure you join in the fun!
With over 80,000 tickets sold in 2010, Sydney Comedy Festival has fast become one of the highlights of Sydney’s cultural calendar. Running from 11 April till 8 May, the 2011 Festival promises it’s most exciting and diverse program yet, with everything from stand up, cabaret, musical comedy and an expanded kids program. The First Release went on sale on Tuesday 30th November with tickets on sale through www.ticketek.com.au.
This year’s Cracker Night Gala took place in 4 venues across the city, inner west and eastern suburbs, and was a sellout hit for 3,200 fans packed into the Enmore (MC Craig Hill), Metro (MC Al Pitcher), Factory (MC Tahir) and the Parade (NIDA) (MC Tom Gleeson) theatres.
The Enmore Theatre is full of technicians, journalists and comedians, preparing for tonight’s Sydney Comedy Festival Cracker Night Gala Show, which celebrates comedy with a taste of all the acts in the festival. This year the Cracker Night Gala is so huge (the Enmore tickets are already sold out) that they’re actually spreading it across two venues – the Metro Theatre is hosting a gala showcase as well, which still has a few tickets left. I went along to chat and snap – here’s some images below:
