Comedy with twists and turns to make your belly churn with laughter.
The Flying Cock aren’t shy of a joke and You’re Joking will now host an entire night dedicated to comedy. Thursday, February 22 will be the first of many regular events showcasing a side-splitting selection of national and homegrown comedians.
The show is divided into two separate sections, the first encourages audience participation with interactive games making sure everyone is involved and the laughs are flying high. The headline comics then take to the stage to finish out the night in style.
Participants in the game will take the stage for 3 minutes and hope to stay there, cracking jokes without getting “gonged” by the audience.
Winners will be rewarded with cheers and cheeky prizes throughout the night.

Three-time Barry nominee Damien Power is widely regarded as the most exhilarating voice on the Australian comedy circuit. After just a handful of years playing festivals, he’s racked up a number of awards, nominations and rave reviews, as well as selling out rooms across the country.
Damien is also a member of the “True Australian Patriots” – winners of the Director’s Choice award at the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He stars in fellow True Australian Patriot performer Anne Edmonds’ new show for ABC iView, The Edge Of The Bush, had his own segment – “Power to the People” – on The Project and featured in the ABC series Fancy Boy.
The 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival saw Damien nominated for the Barry award for Best Show for the third time in as many years, and win the Pinder Prize, a grant named in honour of legendary comedy impresario John Pinder.
