Comedy in the Valley

Last night we headed into Hobart for The Comedy Forge, a huge line-up of comedians presenting new material at the dank-yet-cheery old Brisbane Hotel for only $2. Interestingly, we have seen way more comedy here than we ever did in Sydney, simply because it is so easy - no parking or transport hassles and it's cheap. There is also quite a comedy 'community' or 'scene' here with some terrific talent.

BUT... for all you folks who live in the Huon Valley and The Channel, you don't even need to travel into Hobart to see great comedy. The Brookfield Comedy Club is on the second Wednesday of every month, at Brookfield Vineyard in Margate. There's usually a headline act visiting from the mainland or overseas, plus a changing line-up of Tassie acts. Brookfield's restaurant is open for dinner bookings before the show. And then there's the Hobart Comedy Festival coming up later this month. Put it in the diary, come along and have a larf!
