Perth Comedy Festival: Apr 20 – May 17 2020

The Perth Comedy Festival returns next year with a killer line-up, and has just announced talking-singer David O’Doherty, Scottish star Danial Sloss, UK writer turned comedian Adam Kay, and Australia’s naughtiest puppet Agro will feature in the raucous 2020 program.

International superstar Daniel Sloss returns to Australia with a brand new Live show. 2019 was a huge year for Daniel with a world tour that included 40 countries culminating in the release of his latest critically acclaimed comedy special on HBO across Canada and the US.

Agro and “the bald-headed man under the table” join Jamie Dunn for “Agro – Up Late!” at the Heath Ledger Theatre on April 24.

Best-selling author with TV writing credits including Mrs. Brown’s Boys, former doctor turned comedian Adam Kay (UK) performs This is Going to Hurt at the Astor Theatre on April 28. This is the Australian premiere of a show that provides an extraordinary glimpse behind the blue curtain and into the life of a hospital doctor. It’s been seen by over 150,000 in the UK and the accompanying book has sold 2 million copies, winning four National Book Awards and holding The Sunday Times number one best seller spot for over a year.

Everyone’s favourite talking singer David O’Doherty is also back with some talking, some apologizing, and some songs on a glued together plastic keyboard from 1986, performing Whoa is me at the Regal Theatre on April 23.

Indian stand-up and YouTube superstar Kanan Gill brings the world premiere of his new show to Australia with a performance at the Heath Ledger Theatre on April 24. In this personal, observational and deeply stupid follow up to his 2019 Festival smash hit Teetar, Kanan’s new hour will delight his long-term fans and establish a whole new legion of followers.

New Zealander Guy Montgomery makes his first appearance at the Perth Comedy Festival with Well, Well, Well, if it isn’t the Man She Told You Not to Worry About – a great show from a perfect comedian – at the Astor Lounge on April 24 and 25.

Homegrown funny ladies Fiona O’Loughlin and Cal Wilson are also back with performances guaranteed to leave audiences in stitches. An Evening with Fiona O’Loughlin takes place April 24 at the Astor Theatre; she will get loose and it will be a riot, whilst Wilson presents Open Book at the Comedy Lounge for 3 nights May 1, 2 and 3; part autobiography, part memoir, part factual account of her life, as seen on her Netflix special ‘Things I’ve Thought Out Loud.’

Stay tuned for more announcements in the New Year!
