Learning To Laugh Again

Comedy • Sketch show
Victoria • World Premiere

Have you forgotten the sweet taste of laughter on your lips? Have your delightful giggles turned to exasperated sighs? Then you need to learn to laugh again, you donut!

Following their smash hit show, Snake Oil (Adelaide Fringe 2021, MICF 2021), the Burton Brothers return with their second completely original sketch comedy show.

Learning to Laugh Again is a show about two brothers trying to make each other and audiences laugh again - in a world where nothing seems very funny anymore.

“Their writing is clever and their sketches are hilarious.” - “An improvisational riot.” - “If you have a brother, sister or even a close mate, you should check this out!” - Weekend Notes.

Please note: The performances from 9th -13th March has changed times from 10.30pm to 9.00pm since the Adelaide Fringe Guide was printed.
