Travelodge is offering Sydney Comedy Festival-goers offered a new way of getting to and from shows.

The hotel group has developed a novel mode of transport, dubbed the Ubed. The rickshaw style bike has a full size in-built single bed and will take to the streets, providing comfort and relaxation for its passengers, right up to theatre doors.

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.

“Lie-down comedy is basically the new stand-up,” said Lucas.

Passengers can travel two abreast, while enjoying their journey through the city. Lie-Down Comedy is a new genre, offering an innovative combination of joke telling, transport and horizontal comfort.

Travelodge Hotels and Sydney Comedy Festival are also joining forces to create Australia’s one-of-a-kind pop-up comedy club at Travelodge Hotel Sydney at 27-33 Wentworth Avenue.

Operating on Monday nights from 30 April to 14 May, the Travelodge Comedy Club will be the perfect way to start your week and catch shows from Andrew Maxwell, Al Del Bene, Becky Lucas, David Quirk, Ciaran Lyons and David Smiedt.
