I'm going to be doing a RTW trip in September for 12 months taking in SE Asia, OZ, NZ and parts of South America.

I'm a stand up comic in my spare time and would like to do a few gigs on my way round. I've heard of a couple of places on the East Coast of OZ where this is possible but have no idea outside of this.

Question is... what bars have people been to on their trip where they have English stand up comics? Is it at all common?

Montreal has an annual Just for Laughs fest, which is pretty huge. There's also a couple of comedy clubs here - Comedy Nest and Comedy Works being the two I can remember off the top of my head. The latter used to have open-mike nights on Mondays - maybe they still do!

Just for Laughs also hosts shows throughout the year, outside the 10-day festival venue. I'm sure you can find something!

Hey Luke

Not sure when you're planning to be in Oz, but I'm headed over in 2 weeks and I'll be going up the East coast and down the West again, so I'll keep my eyes open for places with open mic type nights.

Any stops or times in particular that you are planning to be at?
