Every Friday night Live Comedy at Madocke Beer Brewing Company, one of Gold Coast's newest and coolest breweries.

This Friday we are back upstairs at Madocke with a line up of the best comedians from around Australia and internationally at one of the Gold Coast's newest and coolest breweries. Belgian beers, big laughs and the perfect way to knock-off for the week every Friday night.

This week we're back with another amazing night of comedy with two of Australia's finest acts gracing the stage as well as a hand-picked selection of talented support acts. The acclaimed and absolutely hilarious Benny Darsow is with us as your headline act, and joining him as your host for the evening is none other than Queensland comedy legend Craig Quartermaine. We can't wait to kick this one off.

Ben Darsow is an overnight success story 20 years in the making. After stints playing professional basketball and elite golf, Benny has spent the last decade full-time out on the road developing into one of the strongest and most versatile live standup comedians in Australia. Ben's style is relaxed yet playfully energised, blending well-crafted material with improvised audience banter to create in-the-moment comedy gold. You can catch Benny throughout Australia's comedy & fringe festivals, hosting & headlining the premier comedy clubs in the country, touring the mining communities of WA, featuring on P&O comedy cruises around the Pacific Islands, as well as touring internationally. Ben was nominated for Best Comedy in 2017 & 2016 Perth Fringe World and was the host of the 2018 Sydney Comedy Festival Gala.
