After a five-year hiatus, Funny Farm, the bent comedy night, is returning -“ this time to the Paddington RSL.

The first event on Thursday 27 November is an open mic night -“ an opportunity for all budding stand-up comedians to come and get an audience laughing. Aspiring performers can stand up for two minutes of hilarity in the company of friends. There are no judges or prizes -“ the rewards are there for everyone. Funny Farm was started as a way of developing queer comic talent. It became a regular monthly event at Kinselas and featured in the 1997 and 1998 Mardi Gras programs. It also encouraged the talents of several now-famous people, including stand-up Shelly Silberman and DNA editor Andrew Creagh.

Funny Farm’s open mic night will be held at the Paddington RSL, 220 Oxford St, Paddington, on Thursday 27 November at 8pm. Admission is free.
