Sydney’s comedy scene was dealt another severe blow late yesterday, March 18, when the Sydney Comedy Festival announced their cancellation for 2020.

Originally set to take place between April 20 and May 17 the annual festival was a major highlight on the city’s comedy calendar. The 2020 iteration was set to welcome comedians such as, The Umbilical Brothers, Jason Byrne, Catherine Cohen, Tom Gleeson, Ms Pat, Dave Hughes, Matt Okine and David O’Doherty to name just a few.

Whilst the festival will no longer proceed in its normal format many of the performers are attempting to reschedule their shows for later in the year. Information on these future shows is yet to be confirmed.

All previously purchased tickets will be refunded. Ticket holders will be contacted directly.
