COVID 19 UPDATE : Yes we are in Level 4 Lockdown. So no live shows until we return to Level 2 or 1. If you have already booked a ticket for an up & coming show this can be transferred to a future similar show which may involve a refund and rebooking. In the meantime keep your sense of humour, wash your hands, wear a mask and keep your social distance. Thankyou.
The Comedy Fest is over and we return to normal programming and that means the return of our weekly Raw gig every Monday from June 14th at 7:30pm.
BUT with the added bonus that every Raw gig is also a Heat of the 2021 Raw Comedy Quest - the search for the funniest new comedian of the year.
So if you think you're funny, or know someone who does, then stand-up this winter and have a crack at winning $2500 in prize money, offers of further professional work at The Classic and beyond and, most importantly, the Glory! Never underestimate The Glory of being the Funniest New Rookie of the Year.
It could be the start of something huge ... or not!
All you need is up to 6 minutes of your own original comedy act. Anything goes. Stand-up, music, sketch, improv, mime, solo, duo's, trio's or troupes.
If you would like to perform;
Sign on by emailing email@example.com.
