It’s not quite the race that stops the nation, but this chase for chuckles is one mighty amusing challenge.
Since 2005, The Funny Tonne has dared three die-hard fanatics of funny to go head to head in a race to see the most Comedy Festival shows and win the Funny Tonne title.
With a special Comedy Passport in hand successful applicants will defy all sensible logic in this Amazing Race of Australian comedy.
The Funny Tonne reviews are posted on the Festival website daily once the Festival kicks off.
The record, held by 2011 Funny Tonner Kath Dolheguy, stands at an incredible 145 shows – that’s more than five shows a day. With more shows to see than ever in 2013, how far will you go to take out the trophy?
