Local Showcase 1

28 October, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Local Showcase 1

A showcase of some Canberra comedy talent, featuring 6 comedians presenting some of their finest material in a 1 hour show. Featuring Jeffrey Charles, Sarah Stewart, Jeremy Smith, Jacqui Richards, Grant Follett and Katrin Praseli.

Jeffrey Charles – A Canberra-based musical comedian who has supported some Australia’s biggest comedians including Claire Hooper, Dilruk Jayasinha, Sam Taunton, Tommy Dean, Al De Bene, Chris Ryan, Tahir, Dane Simpson, Julia Wilson, Daniel Muggleton, John Cruckshank and many more. Jeff’s songs about his failures in his very middle class life will have you in stitches.

Sarah Stewart – A midwife who will entertain you with her reflections on life. And if you wet yourself laughing, don’t worry, Sarah can help you with that!

Jeremy Smith – My kids tell me I’m not funny, but don’t take their word for it, come and see for yourself… that they’re wrong I mean, I’m very funny. Who are you going to believe a pair of primary school kids or someone with an arts degree from a reputable online university. If my kids told you to jump off a cliff would you do it? Hope to see you guys there.

Jacqui Richards – After listening to other peoples problems for years, Jacqui has decided it’s time for you to listen to hers. Whatever you’ve been through she’s been through it too, and she understands. Despite many of her jokes revolving around death, dysfunction and her general dislike for practically everyone, people describe her as surprisingly upbeat!

Grant Follett – Grant Follett has appeared in sold out shows at the Canberra Comedy Festival in the (frankly) quite distant past.

Katrin Praseli – ACT Raw Comedy 2021 State Finalist, loves doing standup because she is too broke to see a therapist. This way, she can vent to an audience for free! And… You get to see a woman navigating adulthood having an identity crisis on stage. Fun!
Please be advised that filming and audio recording will be taking place at this show.

Presented by Comedy ACT as part of Off Season Comedy.
