Passengers will be in stitches with laughter thanks to the star-studded line-up P&O has snagged for their second annual biggest comedy festival at sea onboard Pacific Explorer in June.

Thirteen big-name comedians, including the hilarious Tom Gleeson, regular P&O hit Dave Hughes, Dave Thornton and Mel Buttle will perform 32 shows during the jam-packed three-night cruise departing Sydney on June 8, 2019.

P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell said following on from the success of their inaugural ‘The Big Laugh’ cruise in 2018, they were thrilled to deliver another stellar line-up of comedians and shows for our guests.

The line-up for The Big Laugh also includes Luke McGregor, Heath Franklin’s Chopper, Randy, Danielle Walker, Ivan Aristeguieta, Georgie Carroll, Mick Meredith, Dean Atkinson, and Ellen Briggs.

It comes as P&O prepares to deliver its biggest ever season of comedy, with 38 dedicated comedy cruises in 2019.

A selection of leading acts will headline the other comedy cruises – a mix of two, three and four-night Short Breaks departing Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Auckland.

“Aussies have an undeniable appetite for comedy and it continues to be a hugely successful part of our itineraries with 780 shows now performed across our fleet each year,” Sture said.
