Sydney’s Best (and only) Chat Show


Are you looking for something different and exciting to do this Sunday evening? Head to Cafe Lounge in Surry Hills at 8pm for Sydney’s best (and only) late night show with Pat Doherty and Alfie Cannock. The best thing about it: it’s free!


I sat down with the show’s co-host Alfie Cannock to chat about what punters can expect.


He explains Pat Doherty’s Late Night Show (PDLNS) as, ‘a live comedy, variety and chat show.’ Think Jimmy Fallon or Seth Meyers, only this show won’t cost you a penny, and is much closer to home.


‘If you’ve ever stayed up late and had a chuckle at those guys who sit behind a desk interviewing celebrities and playing silly games, you’ll love our show.’


He’s not wrong when he says variety. Unlike a standard comedy show, ‘at PDLNS you’ll see some of Sydney’s favourite comedians, along with hilarious interviews, interactive games and the hottest up-and-coming music acts.’


One of the greatest things about PDLNS is its versatility. Are your parents visiting you for the weekend? Bring them along! Or as Alfie says, it’s a great place to head for a low-pressure Bumble date.


‘We just aim to attract a fun crowd. The sort of people who aren’t afraid to head out on a Sunday night. It’s the perfect hangover cure after a big weekend.’


You can find the boys at the amazing Cafe Lounge in Surry Hills. ‘It’s not only one of Sydney’s best small bars it’s one of the best comedy and music venues in the city.’


‘Our show has something for everyone. We deliberately book a diverse range of guests, comics and musicians to ensure everyone has a great time. Previous guests include activist theatre critic Suzy Wrong, Oscar winner Ben Osmo and model/actress/everything Moreblessing Mature.’

Pat Doherty’s Late Night Show takes place on the first Sunday of every month at Cafe Lounge. Keep up to date with their events and content here.
