Looking for a laugh? The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow is coming to Logan.

Five internationally acclaimed comedians will bring the laughs to Logan after wowing audiences in Melbourne and throughout Australia.

The roadshow will be at the Logan Entertainment Centre (LEC) from 7.30pm on Saturday, May 11.

The line-up features Daniel Connell, Josh Earl, Danielle Walker, Canadian John Hastings and Rahul Subramanian from India.

Earl is an Australian stand-up comedian, television and radio presenter and musician.

He was the presenter of the 2014 comeback version of the ABC's musical quiz show Spicks and Specks.

Subramanian turned his back on his university studies to take up comedy as a New Year's resolution.

He is also is one half of the award-winning online sketch duo Random Chikibum.

Connell's observational, dry, often unanticipated comedy has taken him to stages all over the country including appearances at seven consecutive Melbourne International Comedy Festivals.

Hastings has appeared at every major comedy festival in the world over the last 10 years including Edinburgh (2012-2017), Melbourne (2015-2016) and Just for Laughs Montreal.

In between touring he wrote the short film Who is Hannah which won the People's Choice award and the Jury Prize at the Lakeshorts Film Festival and was picked up by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Walker was named as the best newcomer at the 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival prompting her to take her show to the Soho Theatre in London's West End early this year.

She has appeared on Comedy Up Late and Stand and Deliver, both for the ABC, and is returning to the 2019 festival circuit with her new show Myths and Legends.

Tickets are available from the LEC box office or online at loganentertainmentcentre.com.au
