Comedy Allstars at Lilikoi Terrigal Crown Plaza Friday 18 June will be a huge and hilarious night of comedy featuring Australia’s favourite female comedian Jackie Loeb, who will bring musical faux pas to life in this special presentation of her comedy festival show Jackie Loeb Sings The Worst Songs Ever Written
Many of last year’s favourites are returning, plus some new treats, all aiming to “make you laugh so hard that it hurts”.
Wicked Women in Hornsby tonight only, Best of British @ Comedy Store, Kransky Sisters and Umbilical Bros at the Opera House over the weekend

The opening night line-up was guaranteed to draw a crowd: headlined by UK legend John Moloney, MC’ed by the engaging David Smiedt, and ably supported by veteran mischief-maker Jackie Loeb and popular rising comic Jacques Barrett. A full house turned up in the mood for a good time.
