After a year of question marks and uncertainty, it's time for the return of Sydney Comedy Festival.
This year's line-up includes Scotland's Daniel Sloss, who has been given approval to enter the country. Sloss will join local legends Adam Hills, Arj Barker, Effie, Fiona O'Loughlin, Jimeoin, Tom Gleeson and Ross Noble for the 2021 iteration of the festival.
The laughs just keep on coming as the likes of Gen Fricker, Nina Oyama, Cameron James, Lizzy Hoo, Michelle Brasier and Joel Creasey present their brand-new shows.
Things will kick off in a grand fashion thanks to the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala held over three nights and four venues, featuring a line-up of comedians displaying a taste of what's on offer at this year's event.
"I am positively giddy with anticipation as we get closer to finally getting back into our theaters," Festival Director Jorge Menidis says. "It’s been a ridiculous time but guess what comedians have been doing? Preparing! And by the time they get to Sydney, they will be match fit and have stuff to say... funny stuff at that."
"All that remains is for you to take up the challenge to leave your couches and come join in the fun!"
