FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE COMEDY LOUNGE

Comedy Lounge

PERTH, YOU DESERVE TO HAVE A LAUGH!
IT’S FRIDAY NIGHT
AT THE COMEDY LOUNGE
PREMIERES FRIDAY, MAY 22, AT 8.30PM ON NINE

It’s raw, it’s uncensored, and it’s right here in Perth when Friday Night at the Comedy Lounge premieres Friday, May 22, at 8.30pm on Nine.

Some of the world’s best stand-up comedians are set to bring you a night of laugh-out-loud comedy in a special television event like you’ve never seen before.

It has been a challenging few months with COVID-19 upending our way of life. With most entertainment venues still off-limits due to social distancing restrictions, Perth becomes comedy central with the candid intimacy of stand-up captured in this one-hour TV special, which can be enjoyed safely from the comfort of your own home.

After all, do we not deserve to have a serious laugh?

Local, national and international comedians descended on Perth’s renowned Comedy Lounge venue pre-pandemic, bringing their outrageous wit, hilarious anecdotes and comical flair to an intimate audience – in a stand-up extravaganza to be televised locally for the first time in prime-time.

Friday Night at the Comedy Lounge will be hosted by local media personality Carmen Braidwood, together with comedy hypnotist Matt Hale. So stay at home, kick back and enjoy a night of world-class stand-up comedy, absolutely free (and for mature audiences only).
