Canberra – Big Hair, Big Dreams


Sat 4 December, 6.30pm & 8.30pm

These shows are sold out

Chris Ryan had big dreams when she was little, if any of them had worked out, she would not be doing this show. She’s 47 but honestly, she’s 15. If your dreams came true you won’t relate.

After a stellar debut at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and sold out runs at the Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals, Chris is thrilled to bring her 2021 show Big Hair, Big Dreams home to Canberra to film her first ever comedy special at Smith’s Alternative – a long time champion venue of the Canberra region’s arts scene. 

‘Ryan has all the wisdom that comes with life experience with little of the (boring!) maturity, and it’s fantastic…She commanded the attention of the room effortlessly; she evoked waves of laughter without so much as a sweat.’ BMA Magazine 

Chris Ryan was absolutely brilliant, working collective crowd touch points and making the fine line of discomfort and hilarity bleed into one with total mastery.’ Grapes of Mirth
