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.
