Welcome to Comedy Lounge.
John and Jane McAllister started the Comedy Lounge brand in 2002, with a weekly show at the old Hyde Park Hotel.
Within four years, their repertoire of shows had expanded to include a variety of venues including The Charles Hotel and Little Creatures Next Door, hosting a number of quality offerings including weekly stand-up shows; seasons Downstairs at the Maj; special events for Fringe World Festival; the annual ‘Raw Comedy’ competition; and annual mental health charity gala ‘Stand Up for Comedy’.
In 2015, John and Jane met one of Perth’s landlords to talk of their vision of creating an entertainment precinct at 413 Murray Street. Shortly after, the contract that would later make this dream come true, was signed. And so, the Comedy Lounge Perth City venue was born, a tribute to the New York cabaret-style comedy venues that had captured their hearts on a trip to New York, years earlier and the only purpose-built comedy venue in our state.
Comedy Lounge has been WA's premier, live comedy producer for over a decade, bringing to Perth a diverse offering of the highest quality comedy shows from all over the world, boasting exclusive appearances from both Australian and International comedy greats, including: Arj Barker, Jim Jefferies, Chris Rock, Peter Rowsthorn and Russell Peters.
