Akmal is LOST @ Canberra Theatre Centre, Playhouse
Akmal Saleh is back in town! Known for his incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and slightly offensive way, Akmal promises this year to deliver a show that is punctual and jam-packed with words…some of which he will be using for the first time.
Andrew and Danny Bensley are brothers.
Danny has a house, a car, a loving girlfriend but he’s not sure how. Andrew still lives with his mum and can’t quite figure out what it means to be an adult. This is a show about growing up too fast, or not growing up at all.
Cam Knight’s 100 Percenter, an all night laugh fest will have Canberra in stitches.
Knight is the ultimate 100 Percenter. Lives large, lives in the now. He never says no. Except to liquorice and don’t even think about hiding it covered in chocolate. It’s not a delicious treat.

Sean Woodland lost his marbles, then found them again.
The result is a brand new show from the multi-award winning comedian which shares the wisdom which comes from being knocked out by a car park boom gate or humiliating yourself in front of well known public figures. And don’t even get him started on dinner parties.
Shane Dundas – Believe @ ANU Arts Centre, Teatro Vivaldi
Shane Dundas has done lots of comedy as half of Perrier-nominated super-duo The Umbilical Brothers. But there’s one thing he’s never done: his own solo show. In order to get through it, he’s going to have to believe...
Sophie Rutzou once had what seemed like a great life. She had a good husband, two beautiful kids and was about to build her dream house. But in 2014, she found herself single, living in the suburbs with a crazy landlord (her mother) and wondering how it turned out like this.

Three things Wil can’t live without; his thesaurus, wheatgrass and lotion. Words fascinate Wil. His daily struggle for the “right” word often ends badly. In his brand new show Syllables, Fat & Celibacy Wil discusses this, as well as his past as an overweight man...

by Jen Taylor
Have no doubt about it, Jen Taylor know how to rock. As OutInCanberra's resident music critic, it's odd not to find her out a few nights a week taking in the sweetest sounds in Canberra's live music scene. We asked Jen what here favourite moments were for 2014 - not necessarily the best gigs, but those moments - sometimes fleeting - where the moment becomes magical. You can read the first half of her list here. So, in her own words, here are Jen's Top Ten for 2014.
