How did it happen?
In 2015 Producer, comedian and self appointed story teller Ms Stella convinced her erstwhile comedy partner the marvellous Mandy Nolan to head south for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Convincing the locals there was a real, live and dynamic Comedy Room happening in the heart of the Inner West of Melbourne took a bit of time but along came the crowds and the season sold out.
Now a regular fixture on the Melbourne Comedy Scene, The Newport Comedy Room brings the best Australian talent along with up and coming comics to regular crowds delighted to discover a great room, a cruisy vibe and a spacious venue with bistro and bar.
Situated across the road from Newport Railway Station and the World Class Substation Venue, if you haven't yet discovered the pleasure, check out what's on and come along.
