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.
- Jim Davidson
- Heath Franklin's Chopper
- Fiona O'Loughlin
- Julia Morris
- Sammy J In The Forest Of Dreams (feat. Heath McIvor)
- Wil Anderson
- The Kransky Sisters
- Mike Wilmot
- Anthony Menchetti
- Polytoxic Dance Theatre
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.
