The 2016 Lesbian Comedy GalaCelebrating our pride and joy.

 The magnificent Lesbian Comedy Gala is back for its third year!  A night of hilarious frivolity, with Australia’s finest & funniest gals teaming up to tickle your gay jeans!

Bar & Food 

Check out the menu at Angela’s Kitchen: a pop-up Greek & Spanish café that will tempt your taste buds. Visit our funky bar with a great selection of hot and cold drinks. We will be popping those corks all night! So come early, secure your seats, have a bite to eat, grab a drink and catch up with friends and maybe speed date as well. The pre-show entertainment is by one our own living treasures, Chris Falk. (singer/composer – 4 albums & a legend of our local music scene)


The fabulous line-up includes: Hannah Gadsby (“she is damn funny” Daily News); award-winning Cal Wilson (“masterful…her audience dissolved in helpless puddles formed from their tears of mirth” Edinburgh Evening News);  powerhouse performer, Sal Upton (accolades galore for singing and acting, sell-out shows the world over, & AKA Juicy Lucy for Hit TV series ‘Wentworth’); Nadine Budge (“unique voice… outstanding musician” BBC Radio UK) & the band; our own gem Geraldine Hickey (“genuine, heart-warming, hilarious and brilliant” Scenestr); MC, Monica Dullard (“she makes everyone feel special” The Age), Anne Edmonds (“sheer comic brilliance” Herald Sun); Adelaide legend, Lori Bell (“a smart stand-up” Sydney Morning Herald), Denise McGuinness (Winner, Deadly Award “hails from a long line of funny fellas” Australian Stage); dynamo, Bobby Macumber (“she is likeably loud and instantly engaging on stage” Herald Sun); baby dyke, Kirsty Webeck (“don’t miss this refreshing face in the Melbourne comedy scene” Same Same)  & The All New Old Joelenes Band (a toe tappin’ hand clappin’ sensation)


After you have recovered from all that laughing, join us for the official After Party, with the incredible DJ Geraldine Quinn, (“magnificent on-stage charisma” Chortle)and dance the night away to your favourite dance tracks.  Might be worth having an afternoon nap so you can keep dancing until 1am!
