After a sell-out season at the 2021 Sydney Comedy Festival, the smash-hit Schapelle Schapelle – The Musical makes its Brisbane Comedy Festival debut!

This fast-paced musical comedy is a satirical exploration of Australia’s weakness for media sensationalism, as told through the life of Schapelle Corby upon her arrest for drug smuggling in Bali in 2005.

Fictionalised, but featuring pivotal actual events and verbatim elements, Schapelle Schapelle captures a story of absurdity, opportunism, loneliness and redemption.

The ensemble of Schapelle Schapelle gratefully acknowledges the support of the Blair Milan Touring Fund, which has been instrumental in the development of the production, in 2018 and again in 2022.


We take the safety of our patrons, staff and artists seriously.

A COVID Safe Plan is in place for Brisbane Comedy Festival venues.
