Big Dog Comedy boss Andrew Milos is finding new ways to keep the laughs rolling in Newcastle.
After the second of his planned annual comedy festivals was cancelled earlier this year, the self-professed “comedy nerd” has joined forces with the city’s central events hub to offer a remedy for the “iso blues”.
On Saturday 22 August Newcastle’s iconic Civic Theatre will present Civic Comedy Club at 6:30pm and 9:30pm.
The 70-minute show will showcase a collection of Australian comedians, hand-picked by Milos to continue bringing humour to Novocastrian audiences.
“Yes its our product, and we’ve teamed up with the Civic Theatre team to keep the laughs going in 2020,” he said.
“I’d keep an eye out for Neel Kolhatkar and of course Cam Knight.”
Audience numbers will be capped to comply with social distancing requirements and manage the flow of patrons through the venue, with an initial limit of 150 people in the theatre.
The audience will enter via the loading dock to enjoy an intimate comedy club experience with the venue serving from its light menu.
Tickets are still sold through the Civic Theatre website.
Milos’ Newcastle Comedy Festival has been rescheduled to November 2020.
