“This is a piece of one of the largest comedy festivals in the world right on our door step – I’d encourage everyone to buy a ticket, have a few laughs and enjoy the show.

“Holding shows with big name acts like the Festival Roadshow is great for Townsville – it draws in visitors from surrounding areas and provides a boost for local businesses.”
