Sydney boy Aaron Chen brings exquisite mic technique to the freshest and most splendid comedy you will have ever seen. Aaron has toured across Australia and internationally, including Malaysia, India and the UK, and is set to make his highly anticipated Edinburgh Fringe debut this year. Aaron has amassed a collection of comedy awards including Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Best Newcomer (2017) and Directors’ Choice Award (2016, 2019).
'Chen certainly makes his mark with this unpredictable hour.' Chortle (UK)
Writer, performer and YouTube fave Becky Lucas is one of the most exciting voices on the Australian comedy scene and she is commanding worldwide attention. A regular on Australian television, including the Melbourne Comedy Festival Oxfam Gala and Comedy Up Late, Becky has also written on Josh Thomas’ Emmy-nominated show, ‘Please Like Me’. Becky was named as one of Buzzfeed’s 27 funniest Australian comedians.
'In a league completely of her own.' Time Out
Ben Knight is an ex-teacher, now comedian and actor who delights audiences with his laid-back Aussie stand-up and song. Ben has appeared across Australian TV screens on ‘Upper Middle Bogan’ (ABC), ‘Offspring’ (Network Ten), ‘The Warriors’ (ABC) and in feature films ‘The Merger’ (2018) and ‘Judy and Punch’ (2019)
‘The effortless way he dances, glides and twirls between alliterations, allegories and cacophonies make his love of words and poetry clear’ Herald Sun
The UK’s Brennan Reece has made quick work of his early years in the stand-up scene, with a 2016 nomination for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer, an ‘English Comedian of the Year’ title and a growing list of writing credits already under his belt. With boyish charm and an engaging, optimistic style, he’s a natural, enthusiastic storyteller you can’t help but love.
‘Powerfully entertaining, unstoppable force.’ Chortle
A star of the Singapore comedy scene, Fakkah Fuzz is a natural and charismatic performer. Since headlining ‘Comedy Club Asia’ and taking out the title at the ‘Stand Up for Singapore’ comedy competition twice, Fakkah has become the first Singaporean to have a Netflix special, ‘Almost Banned’. Not one to shy away from controversy, Fakkah is outspoken and self-assured with cross-cultural humour to appeal across borders.
