It's no joke, top comics to hit Jets

COMEDY is making a comeback at Jets Leagues Club, with five stand-out standup comedians set to have audiences laughing their socks off on next Friday.

Jets marketing manager Greg 'Jacko' Lyons said the club was excited to bring back live stand-up after having a break for the last few years.

"We have five great acts and it should be a great night out," he said.

"We want to show people you don't have to go to Brisbane for a laugh.

"If the event goes well we've got plans to continue live comedy here."

Seasoned standup Paul McMahon is set to perform alongside four of his comedic colleagues, Katrina Davidson, Steven J Whitely, Darren Hallesy and Aaron Pratt.

"My style of comedy is very observational so I joke about really day to day stuff," he said.

"I think it's so important to take time to have a laugh.

"Seeing live comedy is good for the soul."

Mr McMahon also works as a part-time chef and said he fell into comedy unexpectedly.

"The two jobs are a huge contrast for me. I spend all day stressed out during a busy service then with standup I just get up there and have a lot of fun," he said.

"I was always writing jokes and parodies but I never thought of doing standup as a career.

"I did an eight week comedy course and before I knew it I was hooked.

"I'm looking forward to performing in Ipswich again. The other comedians are great and it'll be a good mix of people on stage."

Tickets for the 18+ comedy night cost $40 for dinner and the show and $25 for the performance only.

The show begins at 6.30pm.

Tickes can be booked through the Jets Leagues Club reception or by phoning 3202 1887.
