Streaming channel Stan announced today that it has joined forces with some of Australia’s top comedians to bring you some much-needed laughs whilst spending more time on the couch.
Introducing the inaugural Australian Lockdown Comedy Festival.
The series has been announced as a result of the unfortunate cancellation of many of Australia’s most-loved comedy festivals and tours.
Fans will see some of their favourite comedians perform material from their planned 2020 shows. And, like most Aussies right now, they will speak to us from their kitchens, lounges, bedrooms and perhaps even their bathrooms – if only to add a little toilet humour.
Filming will take into consideration all current health measures – including comedians setting up and operating their own cameras, with a director on hand via video conferencing.
Created by Stan and Guesswork Television, the Australian Lockdown Comedy Festival is a brand-new series which will showcase comedians like Nazeem Hussain (pictured top of story), Wil Anderson, Cal Wilson, Dave Hughes, Zoe Coombs Marr (pictured below), Tommy Little, Geraldine Hickey, Dilruk Jayasinha, Steph Tisdell, Aaron Chen, Sam Campbell, Michelle Brasier, Nath Valvo and more to be announced soon.
The Stan original series has been announced as a direct result of the unfortunate cancellation of many of Australia’s most-loved comedy festivals and tours, including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival.
Turn on, tune in, laugh lots.
Details on the premiere date and full line up of The Australian Lockdown Comedy Festival will be announced soon.
