With the World’s Funniest Island sinking disastrously as organisers canned a weekend of laughs at the Cockatoo Island, Improv Australia is treating fans of comedy to two months of laughter. In the style of Thank God You’re Here and Who’s Line Is It Anyway, the Cranston Cup will be awarded to the funniest team after weeks of gruelling heats. And the winner is set to represent NSW at the Theatresports National Championships in 2011. Watch real artists at work as they react instantaneously to scenes and situations thrown at them by audience members and judges. Get your hands on these hot tickets and watch the heats (31 Oct), semis (14, 21, 28 Nov) and/or grand finals (11 Dec) to support our local comedic talents.

Until 11 Dec. The Fuse Box, The Factory Theatre. 105 Victoria Rd, Enmore. $19-$22. 9020 6966, factorytheatre.com.
