FBi Radio Presents: Yack Festival


19 October 2018 - 4 November 2018


Giant Dwarf Theatre

Yack Festival returns for another two weeks of banging on at Giant Dwarf Theatre. This year the little festival for people who can’t shut up will host a bevy of budding comedians from around Australia ready to split your sides, and send you smiles.

This year Yack festival will feature everyone’s favourite pre-eminent idiot Sam Simmons returns to Yack things up. You can also catch Best Newcomer at Melbourne Comedy Festival winner Danielle Walker, and Bachelor host Osher Günsberg as he shows off his comedy chops. Plus, Two-time Helpmann Award nominee Zoë Coombs Marr, parody fiends Freudian Nip and experts on Australian satire James Colley and Nakkiah Lui.

Catch these guys and plenty more from October 19 to November 4 at Giant Dwarf Theatre.
