Comedy Republic is an independent theatre and bar in the heart of Melbourne presenting the best live comedy all year round.
Established in March 2020, Comedy Republic was co-founded by Kyran Wheatley, Rhys Nicholson and Alex Dyson. Alongside the hard-working team, they turned a former internet gaming cafe into a purpose-built theatre for comedy. With its intimate size, wide stage and a winged audience, the room is designed to hero standup comedians and the like. It’s small enough to elevate emerging creatives’ work, yet large enough for intimate evenings with the biggest names in comedy.
I cannot wait for these nights. If you’re in Melbourne, you have to come play.
