The Homebake Comedy Stage!
Introduced to Homebake Music, Film, Comedy & Arts Festival in 2011, The Sydney Comedy Festival Stage returns in 2012 featuring some of Australia's best beloved comedians as well as the very best emerging artists in a rollicking showcase of world-class comedy. Homebake has a long history of supporting Australian and NZ music, film and arts, and with the addition of a Comedy Stage, aims to make a positive contribution to Australia's growing live comedy scene.
Adding a stack of a 'laughs' alongside the massive array of music, film and other activities, the Homebake Comedy Stage proved to be a massive success in 2011 witnessing roaring crowds packing the tent throughout the day. Live comedy has exploded in popularity in recent years and the Homebake Comedy Stage (presented by Sydney Comedy Festival) hopes to have a lasting positive impact on the growth of the local industry.
