Cover Story: The Comedy Edition


Prepare to put a smile on your dial because our very special, annual Big Comedy Edition is out now!

We bring you comedic writing and wisecracks from some of Australia's best-loved comedians and exciting up-and-comers as they tour the country this comedy season.

This edition features an interview with Lano and Woodley about getting back together after a 12-year hiatus, a hilarious email exchange between Denise Scott and Judith Lucy, and Ross Noble on unicycles and domestic bliss.

There's plenty to love with Rhys Nicholson and Kyran Wheatley revealing what it's like to date a comedian, Danielle Walker on sisterly bonds and Zoë Coombs Marr on her unusual relationship.
And look out for articles by Matt Okine on gambling responsibly, Mel Buttle on pooch obsession and Dilruk Jayasinha on burning the candle at both ends.
