Comedy night raises footy club funds
Dumbleyung Town Hall was filled with laughter last Saturday night, as more than 100 locals gathered to watch WA comedians from Perth and Exmouth perform a series of stand-up comedy routines.
Kukerin-Dumbleyung Football Club, together with Fish Eye Comedy, brought five Triple J Raw Comedy finalists to Dumbleyung to raise funds for the club.
Exmouth comedian Squirly and Perth comedians Haydn Tuia, Jimmy Kuratz, Cody Lynch and Adrian Alaberg performed their own stand-up and improvisation and finished the show with a “roast battle” against one another.
Triple J 2017 RAW State finalist Cody Lynch was everyone’s favourite as he battled against Haydn Tuia to have the last laugh.
Kukerin-Dumbleyung Football Club organiser Mal Roberts said he had been planning the event for the past six weeks.
“Everyone loved it; we all had a great night. They all think it was an awesome show,” he said.
The football club raised about $4000 from the event.
Fish Eye Comedy will be doing another show at Perth Fringe Festival next year and around regional and rural WA in the near future.
