Laugh Breaks Finding the Limelight

Presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre

How did you get your big break? It’s a question asked of every successful performer. In the comedy industry, tales abound of mates dobbing in mates for open mic comedy comps; and household names who cut their teeth doing sketch, improv or stand-up in late-night comedy rooms.

Is it luck, timing, talent or all three? Laugh Breaks: Finding the Limelight is a conversation about discovery, fame and those career-defining moments that can change an artist’s trajectory.

Our fantastic panel of comedians, including Lawrence Leung, Claire Hooper and Ivan Aristeguieta, will share tales of ‘making it’ in showbiz and how they worked their way up the ladder (or smashed through the barriers) to launch a successful comedy career.

This event will be available as part of the Festival's Online Program from Thursday 8 April.
