Riverside Theatres presents

Give the stomach muscles a good workout with a dose of comedy with Sydney Comedy Club’s top-rating (and rather hilarious) comedians from home and abroad!

The October line-up is:


Please note the comedy acts may contains explicit language.

Gerard McGowan has developed a loyal following and has been lucky enough to share the stage with Matt Okine, Ronny Chieng, Chris Rock and Amy Schumer to name a few.

Known for his deadpan, machine-gun delivery, Gerard was described as ‘a master of the self-piss-take’ by The Music 2017. His new show explores pizza theft, the perils of civil construction, redemption and everything in between.

Jamal Abdul leaves a lasting impression channeling his Bill Burr-inspire everyman person that melts hearts and deconstructs the the funny side of living with a disability” – Theatre Travels

One of Australia’s busiest Comedians, Mick Neven is just as comfortable on-stage at the biggest comedy clubs and corporate functions in the city, and the smallest venues and sporting clubs in the country.

“Mick Neven’s stand-up is so slick…he’s seriously entertaining”, The Age.

His material is observant, sharp and satirical, highlighting the foibles of modern life in a likeable and relatable fashion. Intelligent, hilarious and always good-natured, delivered with high-energy and a never-ending stream of punchlines that continually take his jokes to the next level.

“He delivers a performance with punch, humour and a heart”, The Herald Sun.

With 15 years on the Australian Comedy Circuit under his belt he now Headlines at Comedy Clubs around the country, as well as throughout Asia, the US, Canada and the UK.  He’s also worked with, learnt from and stolen jokes from the biggest names in the business.

He’s performed 4 solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, 8 Melbourne International Comedy Festival solo shows, he’s twice been nominated for Best Comedy at Fringeworld Perth and completed three tours of duty to entertain Australian, UK and US Armed Forces serving in the Middle East.
