Tangalooma Island Resort will hold its first ever Tangalooma Laughs Comedy Festival this month.

Held on Friday 13 May and Saturday 14 May, the 18+ only event is set to attract some of Australia’s hottest comic talent.

Tangalooma Island Resort’s Marketing Manager, Ben Forbes says it’s an exciting concept for the resort.

“Where else in the world can you take in the beauty of a Queensland island, a belly full of laughs and one of a kind island experiences?”

Ben says they’re expecting a large turnout and the atmosphere to be electric.

“We have a P&O cruise ship docking on the Saturday and everyone is just so excited to check it out. We are also noticing that larger groups are booking for this weekend, renting out whole villas and houses as well as their comedy tickets so they can get involved with the festivities and really make a weekend of it,” he says.

From 8pm each night audiences will enjoy hilarious live acts by Greg Fleet, Chris Wainhouse and Lindsay Webb, as well as a special guest appearance by former host of Big Brother and actor on the hugely popular Slide on Fox 8, Mike Goldman.

Whilst the festival is 18+ only, to ensure families are well catered for, family friendly comedy performances will be held from midday on Saturday 14 May.

The family friendly schedule will see hilarious performances by Chris Wainhouse, Rob Brown, Mike Goldstein and Steve Allison. There will also be live acts from local comedy talents to enjoy.
