Pot Belly open-mic comedy goes fortnightly, June 1. Karl Chandler to play Civic Pub, June 1

headgroggogwog 19 May 2011

The Canberra comedy scene has seen some exponential growth recently, boosted by Canberra’s Dayne Rathbone heading to Edinburgh soon after winning the national Raw Comedy competition and a run of sell-out shows by Capital Punishment in Melbourne and an ever-growing number of open-mic performers keen to get up and have a go. As a result, the Pot Belly open-mic comedy night is being trialled fortnightly, starting last night (May 18) the next Pot Belly open mic will be on June 1 and so on from there.

Anyone keen to get up and have a go or just come and check it out and have a laugh (of which there were plenty last night) it goes from 7.30pm for an 8pm show-start and the Pot is located at Weedon Close, Belconnen. To sign up, fin the event on Facebook at the group Stand-up Comedy in Canberra, or email kimball.greg@gmail.com.

If the raw open-mic scene isn;t your thing, June 1 at the Civic Pub also sees a visit from a seasoned MICF vetern and one of the best joke technicians in the country, Melbourne’s Karl Chandler. I caught Karl’s show in Melbourne and it was piss-funny. Highly recommended. Civic Pub, June 1, $10.
