Barry McLeod grew up in rural Scotland and understands only too well how country towns are often neglected when it comes to live entertainment so he started ‘Comic’s On The Run’ touring regional Australia.
The shows have received rave reviews over the last two decades and feature a varying line up of Australia’s best comedians. ‘Comics on the Run’ have toured as far West as Broken Hill and South to Eden and North to Coffs, with some of Australia’s best support and headline comedians.
Barry has always believed that ‘laughter is good for the soul’ – so he took his first steps into stand-up comedy. For the past 20 years he has been writing, performing and producing comedy; whilst balancing this with corporate events, MC and facilitation work.
Emma Malik made her on screen debut on Thailand’s Got Talent – a true story which we’re not going to spoil for you here. She went on to play the female lead for a well-known condom brand and has appeared on Nickelodeon and the Darren Sanders Show – and even managed to land the role of the “before” for a diet shake commercial.
Emma’s debut solo show If You Can’t Train It, Eat It introduced Sydney audiences to her quick wit, audience interactions, high energy… and of course her many-legged co-stars. After completely selling out Sydney Fringe and a subsequent “encore” show added thanks to extreme demand, ‘English rose’ Emma will open her charming, yet oh so dirty mouth and tell you things that David Attenborough never would.
“She’ll charm, twist and surprise laugh you… roar-ing fun(ny)” – Chuck Moore Reviews
