Everyone loves comedy and the Enmore Theatre was packed for Sydney’s biggest night of comedy, Cracker Night, which is part of the Sydney Comedy Festival on Tuesday 25 April 2017.
The 13th Annual Sydney Comedy Festival kicked off with a Cracker Night that featured a dazzling line up of the biggest and best Australian legends, international stars and next-big-things of comedy, including the British-Irish stand-up comedian (and Australia’s favourite) Jimoein.
The night was hosted by comedian Joel Creasey, who entertained the crowd with tales of his experience on I Am A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here and the gay dinner party in his apartment block in Melbourne.
Many of the comedians performing at the Sydney Comedy Festival were given five minutes to entertain the audience. They included comedians such as: Romesh Ranganathan, Andy Zaltzman and Des Bishop who I got to speak to after their performance.
Cracker Night is sponsored by the Comedy Channel and was filmed for television on the night.
The audience left thoroughly entertained. My top pick was Jimeoin who uses facial expression, body language and various accents to tell a joke. I can’t wait to see what his full set has to offer.
The Sydney Comedy Festival will be running from 24 April to 21 May 2017. Performances will be at multiple venues including the Sydney Opera House, the Riverside Theatre at Parramatta and Bondi Pavilion among others.
International performances include Ireland’s Jason Byrne and David O’Doherty, UK favourites Stephen K Amos and Jimeoin, American Arj Barker and New Zealand’s Rose Matafeo and Urzila Carlson.
Local talent will include Matt Okine, Dave Hughes, Joel Creasey, Rove McManus, Nazeem Hussain, Susie Youssef, Becky Lucas, Neel Kolkatkar, Akmal, Aunty Donna and Rhys Nicholson.
Most tickets range from $15 to $65.
