Funny Tonne


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.

The Funny Tonne record is held by Sarah Trevarthen who smashed it in 2015 with 178 shows!

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.

It’s not quite the race that stops the nation, but this chase for chuckles is one mighty amusing challenge.

Applications for the Funny Tonne will open in 2017. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be kept up to date.
