The best comedy dates in Perth


“A great sense of humour” is a quality that many of us seek out in a partner – and with good reason, too. There’s something undeniably magical about sharing a raucous laugh with another person, feeling those endorphins flood your brain and seeing that twinkle in your date’s eye as their sides are splitting!

Want to see how much your date really loves comedy? Take them to Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den, upstairs at The Brisbane Hotel. With a range of comedy nights to suit veteran comedy viewers and newbies alike, it’s a great place for casual dates and a whole lot of fun!

Here’s a little taste of what you can expect…

Tuesday nights: Shapiro Tuesday

Tickets $5, available at the door only.

Shapiro Tuesdays are the testing ground for first time comedians to make their debut and experienced comedians to test out their new material. Sometimes it’s amazing and other times… well, not so much. You never know what you’ll get, and it’s all part of the fun. You might just find your new favourite comedian!

A perfect date for: Adventurous folks who are willing to take a risk! As all the comics are newbies or testing out new material, it really is a mixed bag. Sometimes you’ll be cringing, and other times you’ll never have laughed so hard! This is a great date for those last minute “I’d love to see you tonight, what shall we do?” requests.

You’ll love this if: You want to see something new or out of the ordinary, or if you’re a frequent comedy-goer who wants something a little different than the standard material that you’re used it.

Friday nights: Stand up comedy

Tickets $25 (full), $18 (conc.) via Ticketek or at the door.

Meet Compatible Matches

Friday nights at Lazy Susan’s are host to a broad range of comedians – come on the right night and you’ll see some interstate acts that will have you in stitches, combined with the best the newcomers on the comedy block. You can book your tickets online but most shows have a few seats left, so you can grab tickets at the door.

A perfect date for: Those dates where you just want to kick back, enjoy each other’s company and share some good laughs. It’s pretty rare that you’ll get picked out by the comics to interact, so it’s perfect for a low key after-work date.

You’ll love this if: You’re after that elusive combo of an after work date that’s not too upscale, but not too lowbrow. Combine it with dinner at The Brisbane downstairs and you’ve got yourself a super easy date idea!

Saturday nights: The Big HOO-HAA!

Tickets $25 (full), $18 (conc.) via Ticketek or at the door.

With a reputation as Perth’s most loved improv comedy show, The Big HOO-HAA is a must–see for any comedy lover. Every Saturday night, two teams of comics battle to see who can get the biggest laughs from the audience. Every show varies greatly, but you can expect to see mime, sing-alongs and more whacky situations than you can poke a stick at! Make sure you get in and book your tickets early, as many of these shows sell out.

A perfect date for: Outgoing couples. It’s an interactive show that uses the audience’s suggestions to create all the sketches, so it’s great for people who love being part of the show. If you sit in the front row, make sure that you’re prepared to laugh at yourself, as you’ll likely be picked out.

You’ll love this if: You’re a fan of shows such as Whose Line Is It Anyway?, if you love musical theatre and you’re not afraid to be faced with an onslaught of cheesy puns!
