Join us for an evening of good laughs and great comics as we present Humour Us from the digital stage. Two of Australia's favourite fresh comedians, Nikki Britton (ABC’s Comedy Up Late, Peter Helliar’s How to Stay Married, Matt Okine’s The Other Guy) and rising star Sam Taunton (ABC TV's Comedy Next Gen, Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow, triple j Breakfast) will join forces for an exclusive double header. 

Nikki Britton will be sharing her experiences being locked down alone, hilarious observations about what she misses in normal life, and fond but filthy memories of the 'before-time' frivolity. Sam Taunton, one of the most exciting new voices in Australian comedy, will take to the stage and reminisce on the days of international travel and give hope to those also struggling through the COVID pandemic while devastatingly single. 

As lockdown eases, what better way to celebrate than a Sunday night filled with laughter? Set your reminder and tune in as these quick-tongued comedians are all set to humour us. 

Sydney Opera House presents in association with Token Events. 

“Few comics reduce their audience to the constant waves of laughter for the full hour like Britton does.”


“The woman next to me was gasping for breath and almost fell off her chair… [Sam's] terrific and excellent at what he does.”
