WHERE TO LAUGH
MONDAY Chuckles Comedy,
Elephant and Wheelbarrow
Mondays suck – there’s no denying it. But the
last Monday of every month at the Elephant and
Wheelbarrow is pretty damn decent. Comics fight
for your laughs, and you decide who will be the last
man standing. 8pm, $10 at door.
TUESDAY Rooftop Comedy,
Giggles and a view? What more could you ask
for from a Tuesday night? Enjoy a cocktail at this
luxurious bar that’ll soon be your newest weekly
hangout. 5pm, $10 at door.
WEDNESDAY Free Love Impro,
While most improvisation-comedy events are
a competition, there’s no need for that here: these
guys are good. Couple that with special national guests
and you know you’re in for a treat. Your Wednesdays
just got a whole lot better. 5pm, $5 at door.
THURSDAY The Comedy Lounge,
A staple of Perth’s comedy scene, Thursday nights at
the Comedy Lounge are your best chance at glimpsing
some of the biggest names in the game. Grab a drink
and prepare to laugh your head off. 8pm, $20 at door.
FRIDAY Downstairs at the Ma j,
His Ma jesty’s Theatre
End your week with a bang as you get up close and
personal with some of the best comedians in the
business. You’ll forget all about your horrendous
work week within the first five minutes! 7.30pm, from
$35.70, book via Ticketek.
SATURDAY Little Comedy Lounge,
Creatures Next Door
Don’t be fooled – in no way does this night pale in
comparison to its big sister. Lovers of beer and banter
will never feel more at home. 8:30pm, $30 on the door.
SUNDAY Infinite J est at
The Flying Scotsman
The Mt Lawley hotspot hosts comedians on the last
Sunday of the month. If the quality laughs aren’t
enough to keep you happy, the cheap drinks most
certainly will. 7pm, $5 on EventBrite, or at door.

Want to relive the glory of Leavers – only with less barfing and more barrel laughs? Rottofest will tick all your boxes. The
weekend escape sees a bunch of comedians, filmmakers and musicians let loose on Rottnest Island for a ridiculously
good time. “Our goal is to make it better every year, which is obviously a bit of challenge”, say Leigh Chalmers
from organisers Vulture Culture. “But it’s a challenge we look forward to.” This year, they’ve lined up more than 20
comedians. “We like to have a bit of variety, some comedians that are a little bit older, some that are a bit younger”.
Tame Impala have taken the stage in previous years, so expect top-shelf musicians to complement the laughs. In
addition to this, Australia’s Funniest Shorts – the country’s ultimate comedy short-film competition – will premier over
the weekend, before circulating at events like the Sydney Comedy Festival. Best part: tickets come with a discount for
accommodation and travel. Rottnest Island, Sep 18-20 .
Julia Morris is saying what we’re all thinking: just
shut the hell up. Her new show, I Don’t Want Your
Honest Feedback, explores the nature of criticism
in an age where everyone believes they know
best. You know, those types who post the ranty
statuses on Facebook... or maybe it’s your
own dinner dialogue that needs shutting up?
Either way, Julia’s here to tell us all to zip our lips.
Regal Theatre, Sep 11.
We’ve missed Judith

but she’s back with Ask
No Questions Of The
Moth, and ready for us
