Where critical thinking and comic timing collide

Our two crack teams could agree to disagree, but where’s the fun in that?!

Watch the biggest brains of the Festival get boisterous, belligerent and downright brazen at the most ludicrous and low-stakes competitive comedy battle of the year.

The queens of comedy are back! Delivering wit, wisdom, laughs and lip in classic Upfront style. They never disappoint! A massive night of the very best, shattering stereotypes and raising the roof with a kick-ass line up that’s all killer, no filler.

Unstoppable, unapologetic, unmissable.
