Stand-up comedy in Canberra

By roseb - 3 October 2008 17

I have a friend who’s interested in doing some stand-up comedy around Canberra. 

Any tips on which venues do stand-up or on any competitions?

What’s Your opinion?

You could try the RG Menzies House, I hear their current stand up guy is going down so well with his crowd.

Otherwise try the NRL headquarters, they could do with a good laugh in between off-field disasters.

I do a stand up show in Woden. Always looking for people.

Whoops the link to the Facebook group is

The quality of the shows varies but it is great to see some regular standup comedy in Canberra so I would encourage everyone to check out a show and support these guys.

Does anyone know how to MacGyver a laser printer into a phasor. That should get rid of the ones who knock on my door.

This might help.

You missed the log-in date by a couple of weeks, but every so often we get a bunch of wannabee comedians standing for election.

I am enjoying the current Canberra comedy festival. And then on October 18 we all get to vote for the biggest clown. oh what joy.

A guy name Geoff Setty runs a stand up comedy group that does shows at different venues all over canberra. I know he is always keen for new people coming along and giving it a go.

You can email him on

Or join the face book group

Maybe get in touch with Cardboard Charlie as a fill in (like DMD said) between bands at the Phoenix, or wherever?

If not, maybe look at doing in-between things for bands? I’m pretty sure the basement’s had a few comedians.
