International comedy faves are set to make homecoming appearances this summer at Perth's brand new Comedy Lounge.
The destination entertainment venue, custom-built for live comedy in Perth’s CBD, has kicked off its summer season following its December opening to rapturous acclaim from star-studded houses.
The year begins with West Aussie Damian 'Damo' Clark. Colin Cole will join him, after enjoying over three decades of success in the US and UK.
They'll be in residence for two weeks alongside Fringe World stars in 'Six In The City' (six comedians in 60 minutes) and Live Laughs on Fridays and Saturdays.
Thursday’s 8pm slot will be taken over by WA heats of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s annual open mic comedy talent search Raw Comedy, leading up to the 1 March state final.
Increasingly popular late night drag show 'DIVAS All Male Revue' – hosted by Feminem, who famously sang with Adele – returns to 10pm Fridays monthly from 12 January.
Late January welcomes back monthly event 'Pirate Church Tonight!'. Real life priests and part-time pirates Chris Bedding and Werzel star in this religious satire, fast becoming an institution after a packed first instalment following several festival hits.
Comedy Lounge's first ever Fringe World kicks off on 27 January! 'Six In The City' continues, followed by 'Girls Stand Up' (a line-up of Fringe's best female comics).
At 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, some of the UK and Ireland's best comedians feature. Mickey D's 'Phatcave' follows.
The Lounge will open on three Wednesdays during Fringe to host festival fave Georgie Carroll and in mid-February musical comedy trio Suns Of Fred will unleash their antics for one night only.
