After selling out and turning people away, The Comedy Emporium is back in the Bunker at the Queens Park Theatre on Friday the 11th of July with Aria winning headliner Chris Franklin; one of Australia’s premier comedy stars.
ARIA Winner Chris “The Bloke” Franklin, performs comedy in a ‘Boganeqsue’ style which appeals to all audiences, touching on delicate issues such as beer, sports and relationships. With the headliner MC yet to be announced, the lineup will consist of Scottish Comedian Alan Chisholm and everyone’s favourite local comedians.
“Despite his rough bogan appearance, Chris Franklin is one of the nicest guys you will ever have the chance to meet. Not to mention hilariously funny,” explains The Comedy Emporium’s Co-ordinator Emma Howell.
“We promise you will not walk away unhappy. Unless you are walking away because we have no tickets left and you forgot to buy one… But you might be able to watch through the windows?”
The line up is going to feature one of the most vibrant groups of local comedians that The Comedy Emporium has presented. With the workshop program almost at capacity, the group aims to work towards fulfilling its goal of making Geraldton a happier place.
“While the team have done an amazing job, we need to make sure we can continue to develop the project locally from the ground up. This makes sure that our program promises not the be the Oakajee of Comedy,” Emma said.

Doors open 6.30pm, live music from 7.15pm, comedy from 8pm
