“A Cracker”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Saw Judith Lucy here as part of the Melbourne Comedy Festival.. What a fabulous eye-opening experience walking into this amazing old theatre as there is absolutely nothing in Brisbane to compare it to. An unforgettable evening all round.

“Comedy institution needs a refurb”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

This old theatre in Melbourne needs the attention of a refurb ASAP. The seats are uncomfortable and the air conditioning almost non existent. Luckily our show only ran for an hour and fifteen minutes - by that stage the audience was squirming in their seats.

“Rock of Ages”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

First time I have been to the Comedy Theatre. What a great location for a musical like Rock of Ages. Yes, the seats were really uncomfortable (I am over 6ft tall) but the theatre itself was just perfect. Had a great time. Just around the corner from China town so was able to have a late dinner. Ten minute walk from centre of town.
