BY NICK ALDRICHLadies and gentlemen, the Kweens of Comedy have arrived! Yep – they’re here, they’re queer, they’re funny AF, and they’re here to stay. In case you’ve been living under a rock and completely missed it, Kweens of Comedy is the latest (and greatest) thing to hit the Oxford Street strip, since Mr Crackles introduced ‘tater-tots’ to their 3am, post-Stonewall, menu!
Kweens of Comedy is an all new, LGBTI+ comedy night, happening regularly on Thursday nights at Gingers Bar (Oxford Hotel). The comedy nights feature a huge array of incredible acts, and celebrates all types of comedians and their various different types of comedy.
Self proclaimed as a ‘Comedy show for the less conventional…’, the comedy nights feature so much more than just (sensational) stand up comedy, including a host of other comedy styles, including clowning, sketch, improv and drag, just to name a few. We pottered on down to the show’s premiere, and let us tell you, the acts are 10/10, and an absolute must see!
The night is the love child of one of Sydney’s most adored queer comedians, Cleo (aka AJ Lamarque), a queer comedian, who has directed, produced and starred in a multitude of fabulous productions. Cleo is both the host and OG Kween, of Kweens of Comedy, and will 100% leave you in stitches!
The inclusive comedy night is open to any and all that would like to get involved (yes straight pals, that means you, too!), so if you’re keen to do a little jokey-jokey and make a little laughy-laughy, then see here.
