Get your funny on!

Newcomers Program

In collaboration with Giant Dwarf, the Newcomers Program is designed to encourage new and diverse voices to get started in comedy in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

As a participant of the program you’ll attend a one-day workshop, facilitated by some of Sydney’s most exciting emerging & mid-career comedians/producers. You’ll learn about the industry, how to get performance opportunities and you’ll also workshop your material with the group to make your jokes shine! Then, you’ll perform on the Giant Dwarf stage to a live (and live-streamed) audience taking away high-quality photos and videos of your performance.
