About the Event

Larry Laughs Loud is excited to be offering something a little different this year to celebrate diversity and embrace difference.... and to make you laugh til your incontinence aid is full!

What we have on the bill, is a number of performers who know how to 'tell it how it is', in their emotional, honest and down right HILARIOUS story telling and stand up comedy performances.


Don't miss Frank in his set of well travelled, insightful comedy. Lebanese by blood, Australian by birth, European by 2020 With over 12 years of performing and 5 continents later, Frank is always ready to deliver his disarmingly cheeky and honest comedy.

Frank has had repeat sell out shows at Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe & Melbourne International Comedy Festivals spanning over four shows. He has just come back from a fresh tour of his new show 'The Lesbian Whisperer' Standing at just 3.4 ft, Frank holds a Guinness World Record, for 'The Worlds Shortest (full- time) Comedian'; finally, all of his hard work of breathing and continuing to exist has paid off. But that is all secondary information Frank has forged himself as an Internationally renowned comedian.

As a shameless, self promoting, independent artist, there is an obligation to mention that in his year career he has performed festivals all around the world from Australia and the UK. Recently he has moved to the booming comedy scene in Berlin. An original, risk taking and soul searching comedian, Frank possesses an authentically distinct point of view many fear or fail to see.

As seen on The Morning After’ NBC, 'You Can't Ask That’ ABC, ‘Balls of Steel’ Comedy Central,

A NEW comedy production is set to have Northern Rivers audiences laughing in the aisles. Larry Laughs Loud is the latest production from local comedian, Vanessa Larry Mitchell, who will be touring her show througout the area and beyond. Mitchell's comedy career was launched after she attended Mandy Nolan's comedy writing workshop in 2015. "I had no idea where the journey would take me" Mitchell said. Having attended the course for 'a bit of fun', Mitchell descovered that she enjoyed telling stories and potentially risky jokes to rooms full of people. After performing regularly in open mic nights in Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and the Gold Coast, Mitchell found it difficult to balance the travel outside the local area with her full-time day job and being a mum, so she decided to set up an open mic room at he Rous hotel in Lismore. An instant success, Larry Laughs Loud is now a regular monthly gig at the hotel and the Lismore Workers Club, the Deck and Lounge at SCU, Yamba Recreation and Bowling Club, and performances are planned for Alstonville, Nimbin and Evans Head. Mandy Nolan, a veteran to the Australian comedy scene, describes Mitchell as 'A refreshingly natural voice; sassy and confident'. Mitchell said Larry Laughs Loud is about giving new and emerging comics a space to develop their skills on stage in a safe and supportive environment, as well as bringing experienced talent to the region. 'We are generating loads of interest and support from people wanting to have a go on the stage a well as our rapidly growing audiences' she said, "I am particularly passionate about increasing female representation in comedy and supporting women to build confidence, to embrace their own style of humour, in a heavy male dominated industry".
