World Storytelling day is fast approaching (March 20th), so we’ve decided to compile a list of fun things to do that revolve around spoken word.
The Giant Dwarf in Redfern is a hub of activity. Must-see comedy group The Bear Pack call it home, and it also plays hosts to a variety of shows and comedy nights, as well as home to Improv Theatre Sydney if you fancy taking a class or two! in Check out their full list of what’s on, and make sure you snap up tickets - their events tend to sell out.
Giant Dwarf is also home to the monthly Queerstories, in which members of the LGBTQ+ community share stories revolving around community, family, prejudice, love, and some surprising humour too.
If you want to see the big comedy names who are touring Sydney, The Comedy Store is the place for you. The team that run it are also behind Sydney Comedy Festival, so you can expect to see the best of what’s on offer here.
Staves Brewery in Glebe plays hosts to Powerbomb Comedy every Friday evening. Enjoy some of Stave’s home-brewed ales while the headliner, emcee, and 6 smaller local acts keep you laughing.
What She Said is a relative newcomer, but the response has been phenomenal. Held every Sunday at The Chippo Hotel, the lineup features all-female comedy, sketches, and music. Come for the laughs, stay for the super friendly atmosphere.
Last but not least, The Moth is an award-winning event dedicated to the art of storytelling. The monthly storyslam features a different theme each time, and is open to anyone with a related story to share! (This month’s event is on the 19th, and the theme is ‘magic’).
