THE COMIC'S LOUNGE: OUR FAVOURITE BITS
A REVIEW OF THE COMIC'S LOUNGE, MELBOURNE
Our night at the Comic's Lounge in Melbourne started with some big decisions...
Which dish should we order? And more importantly - bubbles, wine or cocktails?
After much discussion, our table was sprinkled with an array of drinks (a mix of all three, for those playing at home), alongside delicious meals (with portion sizes that satisfied even the hungriest of humans... a.k.a. my husband).
Before long, our stomachs were full, the room was buzzing and the entertainment began.
With a mystery line-up, we had no idea who would be performing that night. The element of surprise adding to the overall fun. And despite not knowing many of the comedians prior to the show, from the moment the MC graced the stage we didn’t stop laughing! In fact, Daniel Connell literally brought tears to my eyes with his hilarious routine #newfavecomedian.
Surrounded by a sea of strangers who were genuinely having a great time (and laughing just as hard as we were), the atmosphere at the Comic's Lounge was one of fun, friendliness and happiness. This mood was not only maintained whilst at the venue, but also long after we left.
Overall, we found this to be an incredibly entertaining evening filled with tasty food and drinks, cheeky jokes and talented performers. In other words, an experience that would be perfectly suited to a hen's party!
So whether your best friend is a comedy buff or someone who just loves to have a laugh, it is well worth checking out The Comic's Lounge and all it has to offer. And the best part? If your bride-to-be (or any of her friends) have been before, it really doesn’t matter – the line-up changes constantly so each visit is unique!
GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT THE COMIC'S LOUNGE
The following points are helpful when planning a celebration at The Comic's Lounge, Melbourne:
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 still 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.
