New website design!

Welcome to the first News post of the new Comedy ACT website. We’re aiming to keep things a little more fresh and dynamic with regular News posts and updates, and if you head to the “What’s On?” page you will see that there are plenty of great gigs coming up in the next few months.

The old website was first set up in 2009 and has undergone a few changes over the years which have come about fairly organically. When we first set up the site we didn’t realise what it would become, and the site now receives more than 3,000 page views from more than 1,000 unique visitors per month. In the new design gigs and content are the focus. If you want to stay in touch with what gigs are coming up, fresh content such as videos and podcasts, competitions, etc, then check the website regularly, or even better, sign up for the newsletter.

Special thanks to Ayla Pentikainen (amarika.com.au) for the fresh design. Big thanks to Kitty von Lustbaden for his help with the original design that lasted so long. Big thanks also to the comedians who provided feedback on the site design process, and to those who originally got the website set up: Jay Sullivan, Daniel Connell, Tom Gibson, Emo Parsonson, Benjamin and James Stevenson (The Stevenson Experience), and Hamish Hudson and Lizzy Rutten (Herbie and the Coleslaws).
