In Stitches

Jesus, more comedy festivals.

With the Sydney Comedy Festival underway - still in the shadow of the Melbourne one - and the even smaller Brisbane Comedy Festival back in March, a week of great comedy acts are coming to QPAC in June for the In Stitches program.

There's some solid acts coming to, many of which aren't that well known up in Brisbane but have made names for themselves in Melbourne and Sydney.
On top of that, there's a night called "Stand UP Brisbane!" with a lineup of local comedians you may have seen around the local comedy scene - Greg Sullivan (Triple M's The Cage), Jimmy Poulos, Sean Choolburra, Fiona McGary, David Eastgate, Bart Freebairn, Stephen Head, Melinda Buttle and Gary Fludder.

Ticket prices and dates vary but it's all around QPAC at South Bank over a week at the end of June/start of July.

I'm personally looking forward to seeing Sammy J and Heath McIvor doing In The Forest of Dreams - it's a brilliantly written and performed show with astounding music and puppetry. I saw their shows independently this year - Sammy's 1999 and Heath's Randy's Postcards From Purgatory - but I've heard a lot about Forest of Dreams and now I get a chance to see it.
