Harris Stuckey – Comedy Sounds @ ANU Arts Centre, Teatro Vivaldi’s
A show about music and lies featuring Patrick Quinn Quirke on guitar Nic Dullow on drums and Harris Stuckey on jokes. Come for the comedy and stick around for drinks and music.
Jason Byrne in You Name The Show! @ Canberra Theatre Centre, Playhouse
Jason Byrne wants YOU to name his show! Following hugely successful UK and Australian tours, do not miss your chance to see ‘Jason Byrne in.. You Name the Show’!
Everyone wants to believe they’re special. They’re not. Luke Heggie is back with another show, about dickheads he met at a barbecue one time. This is a comedy show involving his opinion, which should be your opinion. No lowbreeds please.
Nazeem Hussain – Legally Brown @ ANU Arts Centre
Check out Nazeem Hussain - star and creator of the critically acclaimed smash hit TV show Legally Brown (SBS).
In the last year, Nick performed at the invite-only Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, filmed his debut stand-up special at a sold out Metro Theatre in Sydney and featured on hit TV series “Kinne” & “Please Like Me”.
Now he is back in your city with a new hour of his hilarious stand-up…and a kickass beard.
Sparrow Folk – SuBIRDia @ Novotel Canberra
Award-winning Sparrow-Folk are bringing sexy back to suburban Australia in a musical-comedy smash-hit. Thermomix-ing together hysterical songs, the deceivingly sweet pair are jaw-droppingly naughty – it’s Kath & Kim on citric-acid.
The Stevenson Experience – Who Dares Twins @ Canberra Theatre Centre, Courtyard Studio
After selling out around Australia in 2014, identical twins and musical comedy sensations, The Stevenson Experience, are back! Join Australia’s favourite bickering brothers for a brand new hour of hilarious songs. Come and see what all the fuss is about.
It’ll be the most fun since they swapped girlfriends that one time in high-school.
The Umbilical Brothers – KiDSHoW (Not Suitable For Children) @ Canberra Theatre Centre, Playhouse BUY TICKETS
The Umbilical Brothers are back with a brand new show, and it’s a KIDS SHOW! It contains violence, sexual references, drug taking and frequent coarse language. It is absolutely NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
Very likely to sell out!
Toby Halligan – The Bad Gay @ ANU Arts Centre, Drama Lab
Toby is bad at dancing, dating, dressing (crocs with socks, anyone?) and pretty much everything else starting with D. Except dick jokes. He’s very good at dick jokes.
Tommy Little – Enter The Weapon @ Novotel Hotel
This may only be Tommy’s second time in Canberra, but he’s been smashing it at festivals and clubs around the country (and overseas) for years!
Wil Sylvince (USA) – Syllables, Fat, and Celibacy @ Canberra Theatre Centre, Courtyard Studio
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.
