Eastside is a thriving hub of talent with some who can spin a story that leaves you in stitches. Comedy clubs are scattered across Eastside and as the summer cools off and we head indoors, there’s no better place to be than at your local for a few laughs. Check out these….
Happy Endings Comedy Club - 154 Brougham St, Potts Point

2. The Forresters ‘Stand OUT Comedy’ - Cnr of Foveaux & Riley St, Surry Hills
The Forrester’s is a fantastic pub, but what makes it better is that every Wednesday you can find up above the bar, a night of comedy called Stand OUT. Featuring sets from the house improv groups, a regular MC and delicious pizza and a great happy hour in the time before hand , there really isn’t much you’re missing out on. Psst!.. If pizza isn’t your thing then the delicious El Loco Mexican is just down the road.
3. Cafe Lounge - 277 Goulburn St, Surry Hills
Tucked away just off of Oxford Street, the Cafe Lounge is somewhat of an institution. This cafe and bar has become a comedy hub thanks to long-running Monday weekly Comedy Lounge, and more recent Saturday and Sunday weeklies – all booked by Rhys Jones. Take an hour of two away from the bustling Oxford Street for a drink, a laugh and time spent with likeminded locals.
4. Magic Mic Comedy - 33-35 Darlinghurst Rd, Potts Point
This legendary comedy show is back! They have found a new home at Potts Point Hotel and are showcasing Sydney favourites every Wednesday night. A portion of their ticket sales go to charity each evening and the lineup has featured sets from the likes of Tony Woods (USA), Steve Hofstetter (USA), James Smith (AUS/USA), Andrew Barnett (AUS) and Simon Taylor (AUS/USA). If you love the best of the best when it comes to comedy then Magic Mic is where you should be.
