The Civic Pub



The Civic Pub has been the home of some of the biggest comedy nights Canberra has seen since COMEDY ACT started hosting nights there in 2009.  It made perfect sense to team up with them for the first ever Canberra Comedy Festival.  We are proud to have them as one of our silver sponsors.

The pub has a great little room upstairs that holds about 70 people.  During the Festival it will be home to Anthony Tomic, Greg Kimball and Jez Margosis, Luke Bernie, Act Like a Lady, Yianni Agisilaou, Andrew Bensley and Danny Bensley, and Josh Earl.

Please arrive at The Civic Pub at least fifteen minutes before the start of the show you have booked.  This will allow enough time for you to be comfortably seated to enjoy the start of the performance.
