Our first announcement in December included two special shows by Doug Anthony All Stars, as well as shows from Jimeoin, Jeff Green, Glenn Robbins and Dave O’Neil. These additional shows take the total number of shows during the festival to over 50.

Canberra Comedy Festival Director Tim Duck says “One of our goals for this festival was to increase the number of shows on offer. We now have a large and diverse line -up of great comedy that we believe audiences will appreciate. We have had a great response to the first release of tickets on sale, and we expect that to continue with this latest announcement.”
