Comedy | Light laughs through dark days

It is time to stop doomscrolling through our news and social media feeds and momentarily check out and lighten things up.

There is nothing better than having a big belly laugh. Laughing until we cry. Comedy takes on many forms like stand-up comedians, humorous books or TV shows and movies. Australia has some great comedians and Aussies are known for our sense of humour.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is one of the most famous and successful comedy events in the world and a great platform for up-and-coming comedians to showcase their talent.

If you enjoy reading comic biographies, watching stand up DVDs or listening along to eAudiobooks, Libraries have a large collection featuring hilarious people and their stories.
