Canberra Comedy Club featuring Jeff Green
21 September, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$25
Canberra Comedy Club is presenting a couple of special shows at Transit Bar this September!
The Wednesday 21 September show features UK/Australian comedy legend Jeff Green, with Carlo Ritchie in the MC role, and supporting sets from Taylor Coughtrie, Laura Johnston and Chris Marlton.
Award-winning British comedian Jeff Green has been a much-loved presence on Australian TV and radio since he first hit our shores in 1996 for his debut Melbourne International Comedy Festival season. Now resident (he has an Australian wife, some have accused him of social climbing, but he disputes that), Jeff is hugely in demand in Australia, the UK, Europe and Asia. His impressive stand-up comedy background features a solo West-End season, three full length UK TV comedy specials, two Australian TV comedy specials, and countless appearances on TV gala specials and comedy panel shows both here and in the UK – including Spicks and Specks (ABC), Good News Week (Ten) and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala (Ten).
Carlo Ritchie is an improviser, actor and writer. As one half of acclaimed improv comedy duo The Bear Pack, he has sold out tours both at home and abroad, notably at the Edinburgh Fringe and the invite only Cat Laughs festival in Ireland. Carlo has performed stand-up across his native Australia even as far as the remote desert opal town of Andamooka, the comedy capital of South Australia. As a complete disclaimer, most of his stand up centres around the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912 or as we say in the business, the ‘comedy goldmine’. In addition to being a regular guest in Dictionary Corner on SBS Australia’s Celebrity Letters and Numbers, his television credits include ABC’s Mikki Versus the World and Prank You Very Much and A Beginners Guide to Grief for SBS on demand. Carlo wrote and performed for the ABCs Lockdown comedy success Home Alone Together and is currently a writer for children’s television institution, Play School.
