The festival


We are delighted to present four fabulous shows at the Canberra Comedy Festival in 2020.

Stephen K Amos – Everyman
The Playhouse 19 & 20 Mar

Stephen K Amos is on a mission to bring about world peace, or to at least bring about an evening of peace! Bringing achingly funny anecdotes, hilarious takes on the everyday and his infectious charm, Stephen will warm your cold, stiffened hearts. Join together with your fellow man and experience the universal language of laughter!

Jimmy McGhie – BA (Hons) 
The Civic Pub 20 Mar

An analogue man in a digital world, marooned as a bachelor amongst a sea of marriages, mortgages and kids. Jimmy is trying to steer clear of a serious life, while avoiding stepping on any millennial language landmines. One of the most established club comedians on the UK circuit, Jimmy returns to Australia with his brand new solo show.

John Hastings – 10 John Hastings I Hate About You
The Civic Pub 20 Mar

Returning to Canberra after sell out seasons in 2018 and 2019 – One show only, book fast!
Comedy Central’s John Hastings started from the bottom (Canada), then moved to the bottom (Britain), and has found a new bottom (America). Currently bottoming out, John is back to talk about the highs (read: none) and lows (read: many) of the past year. From losing his grandfather to open relationships to borrowing money from his mom, come watch John hit rock bottom. TW(ats welcome): Mega LOLz and most likely toilet humour.

Best of the Edinburgh Fest 
The ANU 19 Mar 

An indulgent serve of brilliantly funny business, Mary Tobin Presents is proudly serving up some of the worlds hottest comedic talent in this year’s Best of the Edinburgh Fest. Handpicked from the Edinburgh Fringe, join Jimmy McGhie (UK) and John Hastings (CAN) and Markus Birdman (UK) for a night of unbeatable world-class comedy. Guaranteed to be a great night out, see the next crop of headliners before you have to pay double!
