Australia’s only known association run by & for the comedy industry; WA’s Laugh Resort Inc. was born from a bunch of Perth actors trying their hand at stand-up in the late 80s. Incorporated as a regular comedy club in ‘91, it became the cornerstone the local comedy scene grew up around.
For 25 years it presented a weekly club show, programmed festival stages and main stage theatre galas, relaunching in 2018 with a regularly sold out show at The Shoe. As a not-for-profit, the Association relies on the support of its members and audiences. In turn, The Club provides advocacy, advice and other benefits to member comedians, fostering the best in Perth comedy by providing development and performance opportunities for emerging to established artists and great value entertainment for audiences.
