Multicultural Comedy Gala

The Multicultural Comedy Gala is a side-splitting celebration of Australia’s rich cultural diversity, by a world class selection of the most acclaimed and celebrated comedians in the nation.

 This star-studded line up will poke fun at everything that makes us different, but so much the same.

So, do your soul a favour and treat it to a night of laughter you’ll never forget!
