Description The Gala is an opportunity to enjoy a live fire-cracking medley of local and international comedy superstars from the stage, screen and radio, all on the one enormous bill. And while the audience is having the time of their lives, they are also helping to save lives - and all they have to do is laugh! For the past 14 years proceeds from The Gala's live performance and the national television broadcast on Network Ten have been donated to Oxfam Australia to support their projects around the world.
