LAWRENCE MOONEY

AHN DO

After bagging every comedy award in town, including the Sydney Comedian of the Year, and appearing on every television show featuring comedians including Rove Live and The Footy Show, Anh Do finally realized his regular gigs at Rooty Hill Bikers Club would one day get him killed. Since then, Anh has turned his hand to acting, film producing and writing. 

Ahn is clean, uplifting, positive and clever: a real treat for comedy fans, corporate guests, and everyone from 8 to 80. Anh is one of Australia's favourite corporate speakers. He uses his life experience to tailor the perfect speech for each client and has performed over 500 speeches in the past 10 years. The reason he is in such high demand is simple... when Anh speaks at an event, he lifts the whole event to ANOTHER LEVEL.

CAL WILSON

Cal Wilson is best known in Australia for her hugely successful Melbourne International Comedy Festival shows and a cast member on Network 10’s comedy sketch show, Skithouse. Cal was also a favourite panel member on The Glasshouse and guest on The Panel and Rove Live. 

After conquering the corporate and television markets in New Zealand, Cal has moved to Australia and as a fantastic stand up comedian and MC, she has proved to be a welcome breath of fresh air in the corporate market.

PAUL MARTELL

Paul Martell’s client base reads like a corporate "who’s-who". He is a multi talented performer who adds impact to any occasion with fast pace Irish wit and an abundant array of Hollywood impressions.

Whether he is Master of Ceremonies at a three-day conference, compering an awards presentation, creating a "Hoax Character" at a seminar or performing his Cabaret Show with wife Jane Scali at a Gala dinner, Martell stands alone as the consummate professional!

He is the only Australian performer to have been voted Comedian of the Year at the Australian Variety Artists Mo Awards on 12 occasions.

JOSH THOMAS

After only a few short years of performing stand-up, Josh’s unique talent has the Australian Comedy Industry abuzz. His innocent face and cutting dialect combine to create a voice that is genuinely distinct and exciting. For a performer so young to have such an honest and developed sense of who he is on stage is quite remarkable. He picked up the Gong for Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for his first ever solo show, Please Like Me, and followed this with 6 weeks touring with the Comedy Festival Roadshow. 

Josh has been a regular favourite on Talkin’ Bout Your Generation, Good News Week and ABC TV’s Q&A – he is a frequent and entertaining contributor to the world of Twitter and has charmed and engaged audiences of all ages via TV, radio, the internet and, of course, his live performances.  He currently has his own successful television series "Please Like Me".

LAWRENCE MOONEY

Lawrence Mooney is best known as the host of his own hilarious show, Dirty Laundry Live, on ABC TV. 

This edgy, irreverent, comedy panel show is in its third series and fast becoming a cult favourite. He is familiar to ABC1 audiences through his brutal honesty and sage advice on the Agony series as well as featuring on It’s a Date. Lawrence also co-wrote episodes of It’s a Date for the first and second series. Lawrence is of course first and foremost one of this country’s most celebrated Stand Up comedians nominated for The Barry Award at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2015 and winner of Best Show at The Sydney Comedy Festival 2015. 

Lawrence has hit the microphone with his unique view of the human condition for twenty one years and he is now at the top of his game. His 2015 tour of Surely Not continues to sell out and receive rave reviews. 

Goodness, but this is a funny man. And a man so peculiarly satisfied with his lot, I don’t think he’d give a toss if I say: he wasn’t ever anywhere near as great as he has recently become.
Helen Razer – Crikey Daily Review. ★★★★½ 

If you want to work with one of the funniest, comically creative minds in the business then Lawrence Mooney is your man.

LEHMO

Lehmo is one of Australia’s most experienced and well travelled comedians. Lehmo’s live work has seen him headline at comedy clubs for well over ten years and work all corners of the globe – the USA, the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Lehmo is no stranger to TV, having appeared on many popular shows including Good News Week, Rove Live, The 7pm Project, The Circle, The Glasshouse, Stand Up Australia, Hey Hey It’s Saturday and Before The Game. He has also played cameos in two feature films, played a guest role on Neighbours (as himself) and has starred in a string of TV ads.

Lehmo is a regular on the festival circuit, having performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He also holds the Guinness World Record for the most jokes told in an hour (549).

RACHEL BERGER

Rachel Berger is widely acknowledged as one of Australia's finest stand up comedians. Her material is political, psychological and socially conscious. It encompasses contemporary lifestyles, offering a hilarious and poignant expose of human foibles. Her dynamic presence and engagingly sharp observations have made her an extremely popular performer both live and on television, across Australia and overseas.

"Berger, queen of stand-up satire and dominatrix extraordinaire of audiences."

MICHAEL VEITCH

Michael Veitch has attempted, and occasionally succeeded, in a wide range of endeavours, all loosely affiliated with the entertainment industry. He became famous for his impersonations of politicians and individuals, as well as a sizeable array of comic characters (including the brilliantly observed ‘gay airline steward' alongside Steve Vizard, in a small cardboard set made up to look like the interior of an aircraft). 

More recently, Veitch has turned his attention to stagework and writing, with a lead role in the Broadway musical version of The Full Monty, and several roles with the Melbourne Theatre Company alongside people such as Geoffrey Rush.  

BRAD OAKES

Brad Oakes is a popular and versatile performer; a veteran of thousands of shows, television appearances and other media. Despite this list of achievements, he constantly strives to perfect his performances, adding to his extensive repertoire as he goes.

His take on comedy is that it will be best for the audience if they can "see jokes through his eyes" and accordingly takes time to craft his material. His technique incorporates adapting his speaking to match whichever audience he is working to entertain. The resultant 'natural style' provides access to his humour that makes crowds listen and shut out the outside world. 

Whatever the event Brad has the experience that provides humour that all can enjoy. He combines clever concepts with simple language to provide laughs and an experience to be talked about long after the event. He is also a trained public speaker and a highly sought after Compere.
