Commonwealth Comedy Show

Commonwealth Comedy Show

Join us for a fantastic and funny evening on September 1st at 7:30pm. Chris Franklin, Lars Callieou, and Ned Townsend will bring the house down in a comedy show you do not want to miss!

Chris Franklin is one of Australia’s premier comedy stars. He’s an Aussie bloke, a yobbo or a bogan, from his flannelette shirt to his double plugger thongs. His ‘Hoganesque’ style of comedy appeals to every average Australian and touches on the delicate issues of beer, sport and relationships – he’s also had a number 1 hit single entitled ‘Bloke’. Not bad for someone who can’t sing. Chris has performed with such comedy legends as: Jimeoin, Steady Eddy, Garry Who, Carl Barron, Anh Do, Dave Hughes, and many more.

We welcome back Lars Callieou, a local comedian, who has traveled world-wide. Lars Callieou has appeared at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montréal and has a 1-Hour Comedy Special currently airing on The Comedy Network. He's been overseas to entertain the troops 5 times and is a 2-Time Canadian Comedy Award Nominee. He can be heard on CBC's Laugh Out Loud, CBC's The Debaters and on Sirius/XM. Lars has toured with the likes of Miss Joan Rivers, Jeff Foxworthy, and Bob Saget.

Ned Townsend is what happens when you photocopy Orlando Bloom and the printer runs out of ink. A comedian since his high school days, Ned has entertained across his island home state of Tasmania organizing comedy nights and supporting some of Australia's best Comedians such as Nick Cody, Dave Hughes, and Chris "The Bloke" Franklin as well as writing 3 award nominated solo stand up shows. Ned has always lived by the same words: "It's better to s**t in the sink than to sink in the s**t."
