After virtually keeping the audience in fits during their launch event held May 20, The Laugh Resort, Perth’s original live comedy club, have announced the next line-up of acts for June 3.

The event kicks off at 8pm on Zoom and tickets are only $10 to $15. The recordings won’t be available after the show, so like a live show, you either see it or miss out.

Hosting the evening on June 3 is WA Comedian of the Year (2018) Sian Choyce, who has been performing stand up comedy in Perth for over 5 years, and has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Perth Comedy Festival. Also joining in the fun are 2020 Raw Comedy finalist Dhruv Iyer (NZ), and Home and Away actress Elouise Eftos making a rare hometown appearance. Award-winning festival favourites Ro Campbell (QLD) and Marcel Lucont (UK) will be zooming in to perform their sets.

Because audience interaction is so central to comedy, it was important that the experience was as close to the real thing as possible. The team at The Laugh Resort experimented with a host of different streaming platforms before deciding on Zoom. Di Star, Manager at The Laugh Resort, emphasised,

“Live comedy is a dialogue – the audience laughing is literally half the experience. So, rather than a one-way stream where the only interaction is by typing, we’re using Zoom so the audience and performers can see and hear each other, in real-time, in the same virtual room.”

Tickets are limited to 95, and as with all The Laugh Resort’s shows, ticket income goes directly to the cast and crew – all members of the Arts & Entertainment industry who’ve had their income cut. Plus, all ticket holders go in to the draw to win a $50 voucher from The Shoe.

The launch event showcased WA-made favourites who would have starred at the Perth Comedy Festival in May, including FRINGE sell-out acts Jon Pinder and award winning ensemble The Motherhood, online sensation Rory Lowe, and 2019 WA Comics’ Choice winner Andrew Wolfe. Acclaimed writer, broadcaster and comedian Sami Shah zoomed in from Melbourne to perform his set.
