It’s not too late to get your tickets to the 2023 Wagga Comedy Fest which kicks off Thursday 8 June and will be held over the long weekend.

There is plenty of local flavour with Wagga Wagga personalities Jamie Way, Peter J Casey, Bronwyn Lewis, Sally Bryant, Tim Kurylowicz and Grant Lurhs engaging in The Great Wagga Comedy Fest Debate on Thursday night.

Nationally known personalities will highlight the weekend of laughs, including the observational comedy of Jennifer Wong, musical comedy of TRIPOD, the obscurity of David Quirk, and the antics of Lano and Woodley.
