I had a ball. Great crowd, great room. I can’t wait to get back there.” – Ryan, Melbourne

“Last night I moseyed along to the Comedy Club presented by Stand Up ACT, upstairs at the Civic Pub. Highly Recommended! Funny as, plenty of good seating/standing (although it was a packed house), reasonable drink prices & snacking food available… good value, particularly when gigs at places like the Comedy Store in Sydney will be $20 & up. Well done folks!” – Beardboy (http://the-riotact.com/)
