Big names of comedy from across Australia and the globe play here at Comedy Lounge. Catch your favourites on tour for a big night of fun!

Razor-sharp yet soft and cuddly like a baby’s blanket, Ron Funches is a hugely in demand US comedian who frequently headlines shows across the US, UK and Canada. Described as “comedy’s relaxing equivalent of a glass of wine in a fragrant bubble bath” by UK comedy Bible Chortle, and citing Steven Wright, Tig Notaro and Todd Barry amongst his influences, Ron’s laidback stage persona is a perfect vessel for his incisive observations on everything from casual racism to raising a son with autism. Funches regularly performs stand-up on The Conan O’Brien Show and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and his first TV special, The Half Hour on Comedy Central, was ranked as the 11th-best of 2014 by Vulture. Now with his full hour, Giggle Fit confirmed for release in early 2019, the world can’t get enough of the “big cuddly teddy bear” with the soft voice and biting wit. From co-starring with Chris D’Elia in Undateable to writing for The Eric Andre Show and appearing on Drunk History, Portlandia, and Another Period, Ron’s credits read like a ‘best of’ the most popular comedy TV & movies of the decade. With unique low-key delivery, incisive punchlines and shrewd set-ups that led the New York Times to declare that he "Purrs like a kitty cat, stings like a bee", don’t miss Ron Funches on his Australian debut!
