WHO DAT?

With so many people in purple, we are often asked WHO is The Comedy Emporium?

Well we are a team made up of local people who live in the communities we work in. We are a commercial arts business that exists to power the local performance industry of Regional WA and lead the way by developing communities with the tools they need to come and share a laugh.

We just love laughing so we focus our time around what we know best! Comedy! We look for others who are doing good work in anything performance arts related and hopefully can assist and encourage them to create and grow like we have.

47 Performers currently in our programs

Connections with performers and producers from across the country

OUR TEAM 

Our team is made up of not just performers, but mothers, friends, supports and a whole heap of volunteers. Anyone can come join the team and we hope they do.

Currently we have a team of about 40 plus. This is roughly about 20 local Geraldton, Bunbury, Mandurah performers and 15 other staff who help out in different capacities.
