A REVIEW OF THE COMIC'S LOUNGE, MELBOURNE
Some of my favourite things in life: food, wine and laughter.
The Comic's Lounge in Melbourne delivered on all three!
The perfect blend of restaurant-style seating that encouraged mingling, filling meals (with portion sizes that satisfied the hungriest of humans... a.k.a. my husband), delicious drinks, and talented comedians; The Comic's Lounge really did offer an awesome night out... all under one roof.
But it was more than just the acts and dining that made for a wonderful experience. Surrounded by smiling strangers who were genuinely having a great time, the atmosphere at the Comic's Lounge was one of fun and friendliness - a mood that was maintained throughout the evening.
Overall, this venue not only covered food and refreshments, but also entertainment and giggles (or in my case, tears of laughter - thanks to Daniel Connell #newfavecomedian)!
So whilst each week the performers are different (and therefore each experience unique), our particular experience showed that this would make an incredibly fun, entertaining and memorable hen do; and it's well worth checking out for any bride who loves herself some comedy!
GOOD TO KNOW
DIFFERENT SHOW OPTIONS
When booking tickets, you will have the choice between individual performers or mystery acts (where the line-up is completely unknown to attendees before the night).
We personally love the idea of both!
A mystery line-up has the element of surprise; which only adds to the excitement of your celebration. Such performances have introduced me to comedians I've not heard of beforehand - comedians that I would now see live in their own shows (because they were THAT good!).
On the flip side, if your best friend's favourite funny man/woman happens to be in town around the time of her wedding, securing seats to their show is a fail-proof way to ensure your bestie has an amazing night.
SEATS ARE ALLOCATED AS YOU ARRIVE
Want to be as close to the action as possible? We recommend getting there early! The Comic's Lounge operates on a first come, first serve basis - meaning seats are filled from front to back as people arrive.
An added benefit to an early arrival? This provides time for dinner, drinks and pre-show chats - the perfect way to get the party started!
YOU WON'T GO HUNGRY
Dig into some snacks, main meals, desserts and/or drinks whilst at the Comic's Lounge. Friendly wait staff will provide service direct to your table before and during the show. You can also grab a cheeky drink from the bar whenever you feel a bit parched!
Whilst the Melbourne Comedy Festival only fills a month or so in the calendar, the Comic's Lounge brings the giggles all year round. Meaning whether your best friend is getting hitched in Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring; a hilarious night out awaits you and your crew!
THIS IS AN 18+ VENUE
All guests must be 18 years of age or over.
INCORPORATING 'THE COMIC'S LOUNGE' INTO YOUR BEST FRIEND'S SPECIAL DAY
Love the idea of a fun night out and looking for ways to incorporate The Comic's Lounge into your best friend’s day? See below for some inspiration (just keep in mind that these ideas are to help get your planning started, and it’s a great idea to add some of your own special touches as well!):
DINNER & A SHOW
A great way to kick off celebrations; organise for guests to meet at the Comic's Lounge when doors open. You can then fill those hungry stomachs with delish food and wine (or cocktails, if you please!) before the show starts.
Not only is this a fab way to ensure everyone has something to eat, but it also provides a great opportunity for guests to get to know one another. If you're after some games that can help break the ice, click here.
Now that you've had your dose of laughter, continue the fun in one of the many clubs, pubs and/or bars in the area (or around the CBD)!
MAKE A WEEKEND OUT OF IT
Rather than guests having to find a way home, hire a hotel room and turn this celebration into the ULTIMATE girl's weekend!
How? Ask your bride tribe to meet at the hotel where snacks, bevvies, games and happy snaps will get the party started. From here, head to the Comic's Lounge for dinner, drinks and a show; before dancing the rest of the night away at one of the local bars, clubs or pubs!
Top off your weekend with a gourmet breakfast (for those who can stomach it), before heading home with memories that will last a lifetime.
