Rhys Nicholson.

Daniel Connell could easily be described as the ideal Aussie comedian; affable, loveable and hilarious. His observational, dry, often unanticipated comedy has seen him take to stages all over the country. "After an hour in his company you’re chilled out and smiling. Damned if I know how he does it. One to watch." – The Age

Dilruk Jayasinha, after moving to Australia on his own from Sri Lanka at the age of 19, Dilruk was well on his way toward making his parents proud by making good use of his finance and accounting degree. However. in 2009 he was unceremoniosly fired by one of the 'Big-Four' accounting firms.

Rhys NicholsonComedian. Writer. Craft Enthusiast. Razor sharp, daring and downright lascivious, Rhys Nicholson is a wit quickly gaining international acclaim. "Nicholson is an astute satirist of the world around him. Clever, a bit below-thebelt…blatantly very funny." – Sydney Morning Herald

Nikki Britton started out as an actor and exploded onto the comedy scene in 2011 with her warm, lightning paced style that has seen her appear on ABC’s Comedy Up Late and on The Comedy Channel as part of the Just For Laughs Festival. She's also performed internationally at LA’s Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the the Bengaluru Comedy Festival.

Nath Valvo - Whether it be his family, growing up in the 90’s, his hatred of cats, Grindr or selfserve supermarkets, Nath Valvo’s razor sharp and hilarious stand up is winning crowds and critics around the globe. "No clearer evidence of his talent, than keeping a full house roaring with laughter." – The Advertiser

"Jokes and sketches come hard and fast… there’s no other show each year that quite assures you of a smorgasbord of quality funnymen and women" (Singapore)
