A Laugh And A Half

A Laugh And A Half

Perhaps more than a business, we are a comedy collective. In 2015, to help promote our solo shows at the 2015 Sydney Fringe Festival, a group of us put together a couple of showcase performances. Our shows surprised us by selling out online several days before they opened, which worried us that perhaps the audiences knew something we didn't, especially as we hadn't even had a chance to bribe and cajole our friends and family to come before the shows sold out.
