Comedy is sticking its nose up in the air with Wit Large (Smart Comedy for Smart People). And why shouldn’t it? We highly encourage it throw its palm out and say, “talk to the hand” if it wants to if anyone disagrees to this high brow comedy experience. Surrounded by books, Gleebooks will host eleven shows this year where local and international comedians tickle your funny bone in between light bulb moments. A little less Tom Green and a lot more Bill Hicks. Kicking off the year, City Hub’s very own cartoonist and host of ABC’s Einstein Factor will take the stage with the topic ‘Self Improvement. Join Berner, Andrew McClelland, Jennifer Wong with award-winning comedy writer (Good News Week, The Glass House) Dave Bloustien (pictured) as host for an evening of drinks, books and laughs. Comedy goes Laa Dee Da and we approve!

The Woollahra Festival is hosting Australia’s favourite grey fox in a panel quite unlike any other. Yes, ABC’s Tony Jones is making an appearance in a Q&A style discussion, The Big Conversation: Invisible Cities – Communities Actual, Virtual, Possible and Improbable. Panellists include Malcolm Turnbull, Ian Hickie, Lynne Strong and Kay Wilhelm in a conversation about big issues surrounding small communities. Do not miss this one-of-a-kind festival that does away with the usual. A real treat for lovers of forums, talks, discussions and big ideas. Most events are free but book in advance to avoid disappointment. Now if you don’t have any other questions, we’ll take that as a comment.

12 – 14 Nov. Various Locations.
