2019 Outback Comedy Gala returns!

Some of Australia’s most entertaining comedians are going bush and hitting regional Queensland with what promises to be the most raucous night of the year, the 2019 Outback Comedy Gala.

Headlined by comedy festival veteran Dave Williams (“David Williams who has a Jim Carrey look and manner brings the house down” – USA Today), the Outback Comedy Gala hits the dusty road with Christine Basil (Melbourne International Comedy Festival, ABC-TV’s One Size Fits All), Ting Lim (“Funny, charming stuff” – The Heckler), and Craig Quartermaine (“A once in a lifetime show” – Australia Times).

The 2019 Outback Comedy Gala will visit 15 towns across central and western Queensland from 21 March to 13 April.

The tour kicks off in Cloncurry before heading to Boulia, Mount Isa, Ilfracombe, Jundah, Quilpie, Charleville, Cunnamulla, Blackall, Aramax, Alpha, Kaimkillenbun, Tara, Miles and Amamoor.

Presented by arTour, with support from Playing Queensland, the Outback Comedy Gala brings the liveliness and excitement of comedy to regional and rural venues and gives audiences the chance to see some of Australia’s best comedians.

arTour producer Rex Rees said a tremendous response to 2018’s inaugural gala prompted the tour to again hit the road.



“These communities are crying out for comedy, and theses nights of laughs gives them the chance to experience comedy with multiple comics just like a comedy festival,” Mr Rees said.

“We’ve had towns from last year’s circuit say it drew the biggest crowd they’ve ever had, and they’re definitely looking forward to having a few more laughs this year!”

The talented and raucous quartet of comedians are presented by A-List Entertainment and have opened for international comedy stars around the world, appeared on national television and performed at the likes of the Melbourne Comedy Festival as well as Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney fringe festivals.

“A-List Entertainment is proud to once again be involved in this wonderful comedy event and bring four brilliant comedians to tour across regional Queensland,” A-List Entertainment Tour Coordinator Manager Andrew Laing said.
