25 Years of Perth Comedy

The Laugh Resort was incorporated in 1991 by a group of Western Australian comedians to encourage and promote all forms of live comedy entertainment.

For two and a half decades, Perth's longest running comedy club presented a changing weekly lineup of the newest and best local, national and touring comedic talent.

To date it remains Australia’s first and only known Incorporated Association run by and for the comedy industry.

Stay tuned to see where The Laugh Resort will be presenting its next stellar line-up.
