With a reputation for “training the untrainable”, UK stand-up comedian and animal expert Emma Malik is the world’s only comedian with a CV that also boasts training everything from tigers, dugongs and crocodiles to bearded dragons and goldfish. Having brought her unique brand of comedy animal expertise to TV & radio for everything from Comedy Central to Studio 10, Emma uses her unique platform and quick wit, audience interactions and high energy to advocate for rescuing animals, learning about and caring for all creatures great and small.

Having performed in Australia, China, and the US, Henry Zhu is known around the world as a comedian who not only writes jokes, but also performs them in front of an audience.

Henry was Editor-in-Chief of the UNSW Times and a Raw State Semi-Finalist.

Cameron James is a quickly rising comedian, actor, writer, and podcast guy. His laid back, confident demeanour combined with seamless crowd work and instinctive smooth improvisation style has gained him a reputation as one of the most exciting and hilarious performers on the circuit today.

He can currently be seen being funny on SBS’ The Feed where he is also the head writer and producer. You’ve also seen him on your screens with his cohort, Becky Lucas, in their massive online series for Comedy Central “Share This” as well as their ABC Fresh Blood pilot “Be Your Own Boss” which they created, co-wrote and co-starred in.

His face has also appeared on the ABC’s hit show Utopia, and you can hear him on his chart topping podcasts “Mike Check”, “Total Reboot” and the absolutely huge hit “Finding Drago” which is available on the ABC website.

Accolades include an acclaimed 1 hour comedy special airing on ABC’s “Comedy Next Gen” and he was National Runner-Up in Triple J’s 2012 Raw Comedy. Cameron has also made multiple appearances on Triple J and has experienced sold out runs at Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Sydney Fringe, Sydney Comedy Festival, Bondi Feast and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his solo shows.

Named one of the “Funniest Aussie Comedians co follow On Social Media” by the Herald Sun, Cameron James is known for being a charming troublemaker with a reputation for being able to neatly deliver the art of observational and confessional material in both an intelligent and amusing approach.

He’s supported comedy legends such as Wil Anderson, Tom Green (Can), Ari Shaffir (US), Tony Hinchcliffe (US), Akmal, and has been hand picked to perform for over two thousand people at Splendour in the Grass for multiple years running.

Cameron James is clearly a new comedy talent with a big future. He thinks you should listen to music loud, never litter and be good to your mother.
