STEVE PHILP

Starting out on an acting career Steve starred in kid’s stage shows such as “ Barney the Dinosaur” and “ Blinky Bill” as well as working with The Wiggles on “ The Dorothy the Dinosaur show” and quickly found kids to be on his level of intelligence. Steve then moved into Stand-Up Comedy and made the finals of Competitions such as Triple J Raw and Green Faces and then quickly moved on the road touring the country for the last 12 years with comedians such as Carl Barron, The Umbilical Brothers, Adam Hills and a number of international acts such as Arj Barker and Tom Green. This immense touring enabled Steve to work in sold out venue’s such as Sydney Opera House, The State Theatre and the Enmore Theatre. During this time Steve moved into radio co-writing and co-hosting an ACRA award nominated Saturday morning Breakfast show “ Kennedy and Philp” on Nova 969 (Sydney) for 5 years which allowed Steve to interview and work with stars such as Jack Black as well as filling in for Merrick and Rosso on weekday breakfast for 5 weeks over the Christmas period. Steve also became active as an MC and has hosted the day sessions of Tropfest (Worlds Biggest short film festival) for the past 9 years. More recently Steve has been revving up and humouring TV studio audiences as the warm up guy for TV Show’s such as CH 10’s Ready Steady Cook, Ch 9’s The Voice and the NRL Footy Show. But Steve’s big break came in 2008 when he was selected as one of 14 Australian comedians to travel to Miami and compete in NBC’s top rating show “Last Comic Standing” in which he made the Quarter finals and got to perform to a sold out Miami improv and an American TV audience of well over 2 million. This has led to Steve appearing on air on various TV shows such as KINNE TV (7MATE), a comedy spot on NRL Footy Show, SBS quiz show The Squiz and more recently appeared on The Best of The Footy Show Comedians DVD Vol 2. Steve also has been seen in several TV commercials of late including a national Pizza hut campaign and Castro.

EMMA ZAMMIT

“Emma Zammit did an excellent job of keeping the audience bemused….her delivery and comic timing was spot on”  Australian Stage

Emma Zammit was forced to begin a standup comedy career in early 2008 after her sister decided it was time to move her MC Hammer moves and one liners out of the lounge room and enrolled her in a stand up comedy writing course for the sake of family harmony. After graduation, she was inspired to work the hard yards and tighten her comedy antics on Sydney’s open mic stages. In November 2008, Emma won the prestigious “Quest for the Best” new comedy talent search. In February 2009, Emma performed in the NSW state finals for “Raw Comedy”. In April 2010, Emma was chosen from amongst the best new acts in the country to perform in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s “ Comedy Zone”.  Emma then went on to perform in Queensland as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow. In early 2010, Emma moved to Perth, WA and has impressed as a stand up performer.  Following in the footsteps of Good News Week’s Claire Hooper, Emma landed the stand-up support spot for the perenially sold-out “Puppetry of Penis”. Emma showcased her first solo show “My Emmoirs: A Tale of Two Cities” at the Wild West Perth Comedy Festival in May 2011 which was nominated for the “People’s Choice Award”. In 2011 Emma performed for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow around regional WA.
