2016 Tropfest finalist (the biggest short film festival in the world) Brett Nichols has knocked them dead on the Footy Show and on The Comedy Channel’s Stand Up Australia. Since winning Australia’s premier comedy competition Green Faces in 2003, Brett has become a regular headline act on both the Sydney and National comedy circuits. His mix of the ‘clever’ and the ‘rude’ will appeal to the yuppie and yobbo in everyone. He is also involved in the film industry and is the writer of the upcoming Comedy Feature Film Kooks as well as having directed several award-winning comedy short films.
Mark Pitman is a relative newcomer on the comedy circuit but with his vast experience in the entertainment world, working in bands and on radio, he makes the audience trust in his comedy with his natural stage presence.
Originally from a theatre background having studied a Bachelor of Arts (Theatre Theory and Practice) Thao wanted to be an actress but was disheartened because she didn’t see many Asians on TV and the few Asians she did see on TV appeared on border security. Her comedy can be best described as dry, self deprecating and often politically incorrect.
Laconic and dry-witted with a warm onstage charisma, Daniel Townes’ shows are packed with sharp one-liners, savage social commentary and dark-but-hilarious tales of his own failings. Society’s shortcomings and foibles — from the big questions of life through to the petty grievances of day to day existence — are neatly excised by his sharp, razor-edged wit and rapid-fire delivery, guaranteeing a ferocious hit rate of punchlines-per-minute.
