The team behind Dark Mofo has launched a new comedy festival which will run in Hobart in March.

While Dark Mofo is on hiatus, the DarkLab team will launch the Hobart Festival of Comedy from March 22–24 at the In The Hanging Garden precinct, with a mix of local and international acts.

“We know that Hobart has a vibrant year-round comedy event circuit, so we’re really excited to add to the mix with the Hobart Festival of Comedy,” said curator Phoebe Meredith.

“Having the Festival scheduled between Adelaide Fringe Festival and before Melbourne International Comedy Festival means we’ve been able to program artists that might not usually consider a trip down to Hobart.”

At present the festival is a one off, but depending on its success it may be back in 2025.
