It’s a Sydney Comedy Festival like no other this year, with festival-goers offered a new way of getting to and from shows without having to get out of bed.
Festival partner Travelodge Hotels has developed a novel mode of transport, the ‘Ubed’, which is picking up festival-goers in central Sydney and deliver them to the Opera House Gala that’s on over the first two nights to kick off the festival.
The rickshaw-style bike has a full-size, in-built bed, and will take to the streets, providing comfort and relaxation for its passengers, right up to theatre doors.
If a horizontal ride into the city complete with pillow and doona doesn’t tick enough boxes, passengers will ensure their chuckle levels are high pre-show with an extra dose of comedy along the way.
Up-and-coming Australian comedian Becky Lucas will join passengers for the ride, delivering bedside jokes to get the laughter endorphins pumping ahead of the main event.
