Green Faces starts in July

The annual national comedy competition with all shows taking place in Canberra fires up again on July 2nd and puts on a show every Thursday night until September 10th.

The heats are organised by State capitals, with contestants from Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra taking their turn each week. Each show features a lineup of top new comedians plus a veteran comedian as MC – a great chance to see some old favourites alongside the next big talents!

Bookings: 6288 7451 or Canberra Ticketing

Festival Flashback for Melbourne in July

Every Wednesday in July, the bar called 303 in Northcote (site of several successful seasons by Ross Noble and a crop of Australia’s finest funny folk) will host a returning MICF show, each one resurrected for one night only. […] So, for those swamped by choice back in April, five highlights of the Comedy Festival come back for a second bite, offering a season of different performers, styles and approaches, with one thing in common – they’re all very, very funny.

I’m just recovering from too many late nights in a row during festivals and juggling several projects that actually pay me money and have deadlines. There will be a whole heap of catch-up reviews posted this week which will reference where the artists concerned are currently gigging, and if you have a gig needing publicising, send me an email or a message on Facebook.
