Now you’ve bagged the first date, you actually have to… impress! Movies are cliché, the footy is full of toothless cheer squad members, and a dinner is pleasant, but what if you paired it with a little laughter? 

Wouldn’t going to a live comedy gig in Melbourne make the best ever first date. We think so – here’s why.

Shows You Have a Sense of Humour

Taking your date to a comedy night not only shows you have a sense of humour, it demonstrates you’ve put a bit of thought into making it really fun. Enjoy a great meal, and let the comedian provide some laughs throughout the evening. It’s a more relaxed way of getting to know each other. 

Helps You Bond

First dates can be awkward, and sometimes conversation is hard to find. Heading to a dinner and comedy show helps to take away those awkward first few hours. Also, laughter is actually good for your emotional health and can help you bond with others. If you can think of a better first date than dinner and joyous laughter, we want to hear about it.

Uniquely Unpredictable

Imagine how many predictable first dates your lover-to-be has been on. Subpar dinners and a rom-com, a walk in the park or on the beach – the clichés are practically endless! One way to impress a potential partner is to show them that you’re unique, slightly quirky and interesting. Taking them to a comedy night is the perfect way to show this. Even if it doesn’t turn into a second and a third, at least it will be a date that they’ll remember.

It Won’t Break the Bank

Sometimes splurging on a first date is a real way to kill the mood. It can come off as though you’re trying too hard to impress them. While some people like being spoiled, that’s usually something that’s best left to when you’re already in a relationship. A live comedy and dinner is an affordable first date idea.

Something to Talk about After

Even in the unlikely event that the comedy gig is a flop, at least you’ll have something to talk about on the way home! You’ll be able to reflect on what you liked about the comic, what you didn’t and why. As well as being a conversation starter, the show might let you figure out your date’s morals, values, and beliefs – all these factor into making a good match.
