They say laughter is the best medicine and when you’re down in the dumps and stress catches up to you, having an hour of genuine, boisterous laughter seems like the right way to go. So take a breather (It does wonders for the health, you know?), take your mind off all your troubles if only for a night. As long as you’re in Sydney, you’ll never run out of places to laugh until you cry and get a rush of all those happy feels.

A Mic in Hand
If you’re the type who prefers to bring laughter to others as opposed to being the audience, or if you just want to experience a bit of the limelight for a night, then A Mic In Hand may be a better place for you. Every Thursday The Friend in Hand Hotel becomes home to the kings and queens of comedy and the comedy superstars of tomorrow. It’s fair game for everyone in this hilarious open mic event. Did I mention that entrance is only $10?

If you want to see some crazy, creative people in Sydney then you better head out to the Giant Dwarf.

It’s a great place for ingenious minds to try out new material, hone their skills, or simply share their inborn talents. But if comedy is your number one priority, no worries. The Giant Dwarf is never short of amazing comedians and comedy superstars to be.

No matter how busy or stressed or low you feel, it’s important for you to take a breather and have a few (or a lot of) good laughs. It’s a great way to rejuvenate a weary morale and get you refreshed for the next challenge in life. Trust me, a comedy night, whether you’re alone or with mates, does wonders. If these places don’t feel like home to you, just drive around in a reliable and comfortable Sydney car hire service to find your comedic sanctuary. There are loads more comedy venues around Sydney, don’t worry. Good luck and I hope you LOL and ROFL!
