Comedy for the Curious is a unique comedy show where curiosity and stand-up comedy are combined. Now live and in person, the show sets out to answer some of life’s most interesting questions. Why are some people extroverted? Why do we like scary movies? What is better, Cats or Dogs? Strap in because this show has answers. On the 3rd Thursday of the month, Comedy for the Curious teams up with Secret Comedy Club to bring you a full night of comic relief.
WHAT WE DO:
Each month, the show sets out explore a different topic through comedy, from Love to Fear to Cats vs Dogs. Each show comprises of three stand-up comedy sets that ponder the big topic at hand. The comedians then explore the subject further in a personal (and often revealing!) chat between them. The show wraps up with a silly game that pits the comics against the audience – for the ultimate prize (spoiler alert: it’s a coaster).
Comedy for the Curious has been running online for about a year and is now being delivered to live audiences. If you love comedy and have an inquisitive mind, this is the show for you.Each show is hosted by comedian (and former scientist) Robyn Perkins, with two guest comedians (who are not scientists). The show starts at 8pm (doors at 7pm) and runs for about 2/2.5 hours.

Absolutely hilarious. The venue was amazing and intimate. The host incredibly accommodating, and had a fantastic selection of drinks behind the bar. The comedy was spot on, and had us in stitches all night.
