For FRINGE WORLD shows in the genre of comedy or other low-tech shows of a humourous bent...
The Laugh Resort Comedy Club (est 1991) – host venue of FRINGE WORLD 2019’s WA Comedy Award winner – is back for 2020, upstairs at The Shoe Bar & Café.
Western Australia’s not-for-profit association run for and by comedy industry practitioners has 28 years’ experience presenting comedy shows in Perth CBD and Northbridge - incl. a weekly show for 25 years, participating in the precursor to the Perth Comedy Festival as both a show venue and the Festival Club and in six FRINGE WORLD festivals.
After a two year hiatus, the Club relaunched in 2018 with a regular monthly show at our new home in the heart of the city, Yagan Square, on the doorstep of Perth Underground Station, where Northbridge meets the CBD.
Our 2019 FRINGE WORLD program supported 95 artists present 65 performances of 18 different events attracting an average capacity audience of 68.5% (70.8% for WA artists) - well over the festival average of 59% - with many sessions of several shows sold out.
And we’re on a mission to see those numbers grow.
Those seeking an affordable and flexible 95 seater in a highly foot-trafficked location are encouraged to apply.
Please note, as The Shoe is fully licensed, our programming will be skewed towards an adult audience, however patrons under 18 are permitted if accompanied by a parent/guardian.
