Laughter really is best medicine

THEY reckon laughter is the best medicine.

So it's with this in mind that Camp Quality presents Comics on the Run, May 19, at Sawtell RSL.

The concept for Comics on the Run started in February 2003.

Comedian and MC Barry McLeod grew up in rural Scotland, and knew only too well how regional towns can be neglected when it comes to live entertainment.

The focus of this year's Camp Quality event is to promote laughter as the best medicine, and raise money to give kids living with cancer and their families access to Camp Quality's unique Fun Therapy programs.

It's a cracker of a lineup.

MC Barry will wisecrack his way through the introductions of Akmal, Joel Ozborn, Ben Darsow and Darren Sanders.
Akmal really needs no introduction - he's been dealing with hot topics in a non-offensive way since 1992, touching on issues like religion, terrorism and hysterical looks at modern day life in Australia.

Joel Ozborn began honing his craft in the toughest arena - the streets of Sydney's Circular Quay.

Since those hazy days he's performed both outside and inside the Opera House, and travelled extensively across the USA, world-famous cities such as Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Boise, Idaho.

Ben Darsow debuted his solo show in Perth last year, to great reviews - critics called him confident without being cocky.

The suave Darren Sanders has been making people laugh almost as long as Akmal, and took the risk of opening The Laugh Garage Comedy Club in Sydney - a risk that paid off.

He's toured the world, even playing the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
