Scene News: Comedy4Karma – 16 Sept Daylesford Town Hall

Comedy 4 Karma, the annual fundraiser for the Daylesford Dharma School on Saturday 16th September at Daylesford Town Hall is set to host a stellar bill of comedians including Bob Franklin, and MC Dave Callan, plus more to be announced soon.

Following a wildly successful third annual Comedy 4 Karma fundraiser last year, where raising over $15,000, this year’s event raises funds for the school’s upkeep and admin costs and will feature some of Australia’s most popular comics, all generously donating their time for free for this good cause.

Bob Franklin will take to the Comedy For Karma stage for the first time ever and will provide laughs aplenty with his special brand of stand-up comedy. Not a stranger to our screens (The Craic, The Extra, Bad Eggs, Boy Town, Beneath Hill 60, Shaun Micallef’s World Around Him, The Micallef P(r)ogram(me), Stupid, Stupid Man, The Librarians, The Adventures of Lano & Woodley and Thank God You’re Here), he has also published a book of poetry. He made his break as Jimeoin’s comedy mate and is most well known from Jimeoin & Bob’s Cooking Show.

MCing the event will be the ever-delightful Dave Callan. Irish born star of Triple J radio and original Rove cast member Dave is also recognisable from his appearances on Spicks and Specks, The Comedy Festival Gala and The Adventures of the Good News Week. He is currently a regular on Good Game on ABC 2. He has performed at the Edinburgh Festival and toured Britain, South East Asia, the U.S. and his adopted home of Australia.

Providing pre-event warm up tunes for the audience before the laughs begin, will be much loved local act Ari & Rhiannon. Punters will be treated with their sassy tunes whilst grabbing the opportunity to nourish their souls and bellies with great wholesome local food via the food truck and bid on the Silent Auction featuring excellent locally sourced items.

Comedy 4 Karma is an important and much needed annual fundraiser for the Daylesford Dharma School (currently Australia’s only Buddhist primary school and one of only three schools of its kind in the world). The school began in 2009 with 15 students, and has over 60 students enrolled in 2017. The school continues to grow in size and reputation.

Don’t miss this wonderful night of comedy on Saturday 16th of September, with big names, big laughs, all in the name of a good cause and good karma at Comedy 4 Karma. Tickets are $40 plus booking fee and available now at or on the door if not sold out.
