Multicultural Comedy Gala

A showcase of critically acclaimed comedians, including Georgie Carroll, George Kapiniaris and Ting Lim, hits stages in Darwin and Alice Springs for the Multicultural Comedy Gala – a must-see for comedy lovers.

Enjoy a night of hilarity, as culturally diverse comedians explore both our differences and what brings us together, spinning their comedy from stories that frame their lives as people from different backgrounds in modern Australia.

British-born comedian Georgie Carroll, who has featured on shows like The Project, says the diversity and experience of the other comedians is why she’s thrilled to be part of the line-up.

“The Multicultural Comedy Gala is like the World Cup of comedy,” she says.

“The premise is that these people have left their homes to make Australia their home, and the funny they have found in it … We’ve got people who have been in refugee camps, people who’ve had to flee through several countries to get here.”

As with any comedy show, Carroll says the primary aim is for the audience to enjoy themselves.

“I want them to laugh that hard, the day after, they’ve got jaw ache and rib ache. And I want to give them a proper workout. I want them to feel like they’ve been planking, I want them to laugh that hard.”

With a slate of high-profile comedians eager to get you giggling, the Multicultural Comedy Gala is set to be an unforgettable experience. It offers a deep dive into the extraordinary talents of a range of comedians, presented in a fun and entertaining night out. You’re in for a hoot.
