Smirk From Home Live!
Live Stand-up Comedy
Smirk From Home Live via Zoom
The Smirk From Home team brings you live stand-up (actually sitting down) comedy every Thursday night at 8 pm Sydney time, via the power of Zoom.
Tune in from 7:50, leave your mic on if you're a laugher, turn it off if you're a talker, and set your phasers to fun.
Featuring Jacques Barrett, Damian Smith, Dr Ogunde, Charlie Chucklefück and special guest Jessie the Wonderdog.
WHAT DID YOU DO DURING COVID-19?
Because we wrote a book.
Professional stand-up comedians for over 15 years, festival firebrand Damian Smith and road-dog veteran Jacques Barrett combine forces to explore the how, why and when of the art of stand-up comedy.
The Book on Comedy is...well...the book on comedy. It is an exhaustive exploration of the science and mechanics behind the craft, the history of stand-up, the psychology of jokes and much more. If you've ever wondered why we laugh, why some words are funnier than others, and why the chicken crossed the road then it's all here.
