BRISBANE COMEDY FESTIVAL AND UPCOMING SHOWS AT THE POWERHOUSE

Something is on the nose and we have high suspicions that it is all those stinky children running amuck in New Farm Park! All Children Are Stinky right? We are welcoming an acrobatic duo setting out to prove just that!

That being said, the sweet smell of anticipation is wafting around as all those comedians start arriving in town for Brisbane Comedy Festival! (Maybe a bit of sweat too from those not lucky enough to be Brisbane-based – see our local picks below!).

With some truly exciting acts freshly announced, including Tim Winton on Lost Boys and Toxic Masculinity, Hot Brown Honey and the dancers at Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance, we think February is actually going to smell like roses.

COMING UP

Children Are Stinky – Pictured Above

THU 12–SUN 15 APRIL

All children are stinky, right?

Against a backdrop of high calibre circus, a rocking ‘90s soundtrack and genuine belly laughs, this acrobatic duo’s attempts to prove kids STINK are met with messy, ridiculous and hysterical twists. They only succeed in proving that children are awesome…and they know it!

Expect daredevil stunts, incredible acrobatics, lightning fast hula hoops, loads of laughs and mischievous fun.

Off the back of five star sell-out shows at Edinburgh Fringe, this action-packed circus extravaganza will have your jaws on the floor hooting for more!

Join us for this school holiday fun!
