GC Laughs Festival Returns for Second Outing at HOTA: Home of the Arts


GC Laughs Festival Returns for Second Outing at HOTA: Home of the Arts 1

Who here doesn’t love a good laugh? Nobody?

Now… who here would love a whole week of laughs?

InIn 2019, HOTA: Home of the Arts was home to the inaugural GC Laughs Festival on the Gold Coast. With an opening night Gala performance hosted by Sammy J, and a diverse range of comedians in attendance with significant headliners including Ross Noble, Daniel Sloss, Fern Brady, Arj Baker, Dusty Rick, Stephen K Amos to name a few – there was no shortage of laughs from the Arts Theatre. Now in 2020, GC Laughs Festival is back again with another fantastic line-up of Australian and international comedians ready to make you laugh out loud from Saturday 14 March 2020 to Saturday 21 March 2020.

This year’s festival will kick off with the GC Laughs Gala, which again will feature “the Festival’s funniest international stars to homegrown heroes”. Having attended last year’s, I would best describe the gala as an entertaining sampler of many comedians featured in the festival. If you are looking for comedians that suit your style of humour, this will be an event you might want to attend.

From there, you have a wealth of individual performances to attend. Em Rusciano, Joel Creasey, Randy Feltface and Sam Simmons are just a few of the comedians holding their own shows. There is also a fun looking session by Dusty Rich titled “Stand Up Comedy for Kids“, offering something for even the younger audiences. On the opposite side of the spectrum, for those who like late-night comedy, Late Laughs is for those 15+ who are after some post-10pm laughs. A full daily schedule can be found on the HOTA: Home of the Arts website.

Having enjoyed last year’s line-up, I am ecstatic that the GC Laughs Festival is back for its second outing. Here’s hoping this could become another valued annual addition to the Gold Coast calendar in many years to come.
