This event has finished
Do you like making fun of Real Housewives? No, no – we mean really like it? Then you will love Just for Laughs headliner Kathy Griffin's schtick (Fri Oct 18): not a pulled-back face is safe (especially hers). Joining her in the Opera House's annual comedy festival will be Rove McManus, hosting the international gala (Sat Oct 19) where audiences will get a taste of a bunch of international acts – it will be Rove's first live gig in Australia in some five years.
Plus, Deuce Bigalow himself, Rob Schneider(he'll always be the 'Animal' to us) will do a stand-up gig (Sat Oct 19); Tommy Tiernan's coming (Sun Oct 20); as are – breathe, just breathe – stars of Whose Line Is It Anyway?Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood(Oct 17-20). English funnyman Mark Watson (Oct 16 & 19) and locals Dave Thornton (Oct 17-18) and Peter Helliar (Oct 16-20) round out the line-up so far.
