It’s time to put on your laughing pants Gold Coast

It’s time for a good laugh with the GC Laughs festival returning to HOTA this weekend, showcasing a hilarious lineup of homegrown stars and comedic talent from around the country that are sure to have you bursting at your sides.

Headliners of the festival include Australian comedy legends Joel Creasey, Tommy Little, and Fiona O’Loughlin, who will take to the stage alongside some of the best local and international acts.

Creasey, who you may have seen on his Netflix Special or as part of Nova Fm’s national drive show or even hosting the international song competition Eurovision, is going to be bringing his new show’ Messy Bitch to HOTA on the 20th.

Comedy stalwart Fiona O’loughlin from I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Here, or International appearances at Edinburgh Fringe or the Melbourne Comedy Festival, is going to return for another year with her new act that’s sure to be a favourite.

And when it comes to comedy with no limits, Tommy Little takes no prisoners, ready to give the Gold Coast a glimpse into his real-life antics, foolish and funny as hell, for a hot night of comedy.

The GC Laughs Gala kicks off the festival on Saturday with the biggest night of comedy on the Gold Coast and hosted by cultural and big-time Aussie comedy icon Heath Franklin Chopper.

On Thursday, March 18, Ivan Aristeguieta, Frenchy, Bob Franklin, and Aaron Gocs will take to the stage, followed by Danielle Walker, Gen Fricker, Luke Heggie, Fiona O’Loughlin, Nick Cody, and Michelle Brasier on Friday, March 19.

After his sell-out shows in previous years, Joel Creasey returns on Saturday, March 20, with Neel Kolhatkar, Craig Quartermaine, Sam Taunton, Women Like Us, Dan Rath, Hot Department, and Tommy Little.

Rounding out the festival on Sunday, March 21, is South Africa’s hilarious Dusty Rich, who will be bringing his twice sold-out insanity manifestation ‘The Dusty Rich Comedy Circus’ – a weird and wild show, set to take the audience on an insane ride to close the GC Laughs Festival 2021.
