Comedy @ The Gollan ~ Featuring Shayne Hunter!
Time & Location
About the Event
We had so much fun at the Gollan, we are coming back to kick off Easter weekend with another dose of loud laughter..... this time, bringing Shayne Hunter to town!
"Shayne Hunter is an Australian Comedy Maverick. Intellect in disguise, Shayne's smart, poignant and socially aware comedy pushes boundaries in pubs, clubs, arts centres - any setting is a suitable backdrop for his biting, big-laugh perspective. To comedy fans: don't miss Shayne's thoughtful, often manic comedy. It can be vicious, it can be raw, but it's always hilarious. To bookers: Shayne pushes boundaries and tests limits with every audience, but his risks are calculated and he always has the energy, material and control to bring a crowd back from the brink. His performances are always endearing and incredibly funny." - Josh Armstrong, Promoter at BASED Comedy.
In 2010, Shayne was selected for the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival Comedy Zone. He toured every capital city, constantly sharpening his stand up skills on the road becoming one of the Australia’s most original and interesting voices.
After stepping back from the mic for a while to focus his energy as a political activist for refugee and aboriginal rights, he returned to the scene and began touring the national comedy circuit, taking his show "Blaze Against The Machine" to the Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth Comedy Festivals... and attracting a mass of new fans along the way!
Shayne has headlined Larry Laughs Loud shows in Nimbin and Yamba, and we are super pumped to have him back on stage with us in Lismore, at the Gollan Hotel on 18th April 2019.
$10 entry. Space is limited, so get in early!

A NEW comedy production is set to have Northern Rivers audiences laughing in the aisles. Larry Laughs Loud is the latest production from local comedian, Vanessa Larry Mitchell, who will be touring her show througout the area and beyond. Mitchell's comedy career was launched after she attended Mandy Nolan's comedy writing workshop in 2015. "I had no idea where the journey would take me" Mitchell said. Having attended the course for 'a bit of fun', Mitchell descovered that she enjoyed telling stories and potentially risky jokes to rooms full of people. After performing regularly in open mic nights in Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and the Gold Coast, Mitchell found it difficult to balance the travel outside the local area with her full-time day job and being a mum, so she decided to set up an open mic room at he Rous hotel in Lismore. An instant success, Larry Laughs Loud is now a regular monthly gig at the hotel and the Lismore Workers Club, the Deck and Lounge at SCU, Yamba Recreation and Bowling Club, and performances are planned for Alstonville, Nimbin and Evans Head. Mandy Nolan, a veteran to the Australian comedy scene, describes Mitchell as 'A refreshingly natural voice; sassy and confident'. Mitchell said Larry Laughs Loud is about giving new and emerging comics a space to develop their skills on stage in a safe and supportive environment, as well as bringing experienced talent to the region. 'We are generating loads of interest and support from people wanting to have a go on the stage a well as our rapidly growing audiences' she said, "I am particularly passionate about increasing female representation in comedy and supporting women to build confidence, to embrace their own style of humour, in a heavy male dominated industry".
