What started as a bunch of actors and open micers trying their hand at stand-up in the late 1980s became the cornerstone the Perth comedy scene would grow up around.
In 1991 The Laugh Resort became Australia’s only known Incorporated Association for stand-up comedians.
In its first 25 years Laugh Resort presented a weekly club show, programmed festival stages, main stage theatre and charity galas.
As a not-for-profit, the Association relies on the support of its membership and audiences.
In turn, The Laugh Resort provides advocacy, advice and other benefits to its member comedians, fostering the best in Perth comedy by providing development and performance opportunities for emerging and established artists and great value entertainment for audiences.
