Get ready to laugh until your cheeks hurt, because next Friday February 18, ‘Comedy @ The Joan’ is back and better than ever in Penrith!

‘Comedy @ The Joan’ is a stand-up comedy season at the Joan’s Q Theatre with a monthly gig featuring six comics in quick succession over a side-splitting 70 minutes.

This year, ‘Comedy @ The Joan’ will be hosted by Australia’s first (and only) hijab-wearing Muslim Australian stand-up comedian, Frida Deguise. Deguise’s reputation for breaking stereotypes and a fearless pursuit of comic material has earned her spots in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala and Nazeem Hussain’s ‘Stand Up for Christchurch’. Now, the rising star is heading to Penrith.

This month’s lineup includes comedy heavyweights Sean Woodland, Emma Malik, Joe Mifsud, Rob Andrews and Jamal Abdul, so expect to be entertained!

‘Comedy @ The Joan’ is on at The Joan in Penrith on Friday, February 18 at 7.30pm. Tickets start at $25. For more information or to book, call (02) 4723 7600 or visit
