LAWRENCE MOONEY

GEORGE MCENROE

Stand-up comedian and radio host George McEncroe has had an interesting journey. After juggling four kids, work and play, she has plenty of real-life experiences to share with her audiences. Her direct manner, quick humour, warmth and approachability have made her an audience favourite. She boats one of the fullest trophy cabinets in town after winning the Austereo Rising Star award, Brisbane’s Iron Comic award for stand-up comedy and a Goldie award for Best On-Air Performance while co-hosting Triple M’s breakfast show The Cage. George has also written for The Age, The Australian, The Big Issue and sketch shows The Big Bite and Life Support.

She has made guest appearances on radio and television, including ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks, Mick Molloy’s The Nation, The Today Show, and Get This on Triple M. Her first solo show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Georgina Monologues, was a smash hit.

DES DOWLING

Des Dowling is one of Australia’s most versatile stand-up comedy performers.  Whether its appearing as a TV presenter, utilising his polished interviewing skills and humor as a corporate MC, or performing a hilarious 30 minute set of stand up comedy, Des delivers a top notch comedy performance every time.

He’s headlined at the top comedy clubs around Australia and his corporate clients include NAB, St George Bank, Devine Homes, The Master Builders Association, Visy, North Melbourne Football Club and many more.

Des' comedy schtick is the sum of his experiences, from wide-eyed farm boy to jaded journo, with something in between for people of all ages and backgrounds. He will make your function or comedy night a memorable one.

CELIA PACQUOLA

Celia Pacquola burst onto the Melbourne comedy scene in 2006. After only a handful of gigs, but a barrelful of laughs, she was crowned the Raw Recruit, winning the prize for Best First Time Entrant in the prestigious Raw Comedy open mic competition as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Celia’s candid and richly funny observations of the universe are lapped up by audiences nationally and noted by critics. 

Celia had a starring role as EJ in the successful ABC TV black comedy series Laid(written by Marieke Hardy and Kirsty Fisher). She has also appeared as herself on shows including Good News Week, Spicks and Specks, Adam Hills in Gordon St Tonight, Rove andThe 7pm Project.

GLENN ROBBINS

As a stand-up comedian in the 80s, Glenn enjoyed performing at popular comedy venues in Melbourne and Sydney. Audiences warmed to his naturally dry sense of humour and style.

The move into television was a natural progression. He became well-known as a performer/writer for a number of television's top rating comedy sketch shows including The Comedy Company (Network Ten), Fast Forward, Full Frontal and Jimeoin (7 Network). 

Glenn’s other notable characters include the ‘outback adventurer’ Russell Coight, and Kel Knight from the wildly popular ABC series Kath & Kim. His charmingly incompetent TV personalities are a stark contrast to his brilliant wit and quick humour.

ADAM VINCENT

Adelaide-born Adam Vincent moved to Melbourne after competing in the national final of the Triple J Raw comedy competition. A year long stint in the United Kingdom allowed Adam to hone his craft in front of international audiences, helping him create his own unique brand of comedy.

His underground show Humans Anonymous was hailed by big-name comedian Adam Hills as the best show in that year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and his follow-up show Adam Vincent in Adamland received similar critical and peer-based acclaim.

It is becoming ever more apparent that Adam Vincent is the comedian to watch as his shows are consistently hilarious and evolving to a point where both show and performer are simply undeniable..

STEVE PHILP

Watching Steve Philp perform is like watching an episode of 80s TV show It’s A Knockout… except he assures us no-one will get hurt! Actor, comedian and former radio announcer, Steve has adapted to everything life has thrown at him.

Steve has been keeping busy, revving up and humouring TV studio audiences as the warm-up guy for TV shows such as Ready Steady Cook, Ronnie Johns Half Hour, The Contest and Celebrity Spelling Bee. He also appeared on camera on the Comedy Channel’s Stand Up Australia as well as featuring in TV commercials for Career-One.

TROY KINNE

Troy is often recognized from his performance on the The Search for Australia’s Funniest Man DVD featured with FHM magazine in 2006. 

Troy had been performing stand up comedy for less than a year prior to this performance and has since won almost every young comic competition in the country. Among which was the ‘You Gotta Be Joking’ competition at the Comic’s Lounge in Melbourne. This win saw Troy receive the prize of a trip to New York to attend the American Institute of Comedy. In only six weeks Troy managed to impress enough of the right people to earn him comedy spots at world famous comedy clubs Caroline’s on Broadway, Stand Up New York and Gotham Comedy Club.

Since returning from New York, Troy has worked for MIX FM and GOLD FM in Melbourne as part of the ‘on air’ promotional street teams.

He now has his own television comedy show 'Kinne'.

BIG BROTHER LITTLE BROTHER

Two brothers, one Guitar and a Triangle!

Corporate comedians Big Brother Little Brother are brothers Adam and Mathew Hedditch. Adam (Big Brother) is Australia's premiere Trianglist and is a leading figure in the heavy metal scene. While Mathew (Little Brother) is an accomplished Guitarist who has mastered all the basic chords, even the hard ones like G and F.

Since winning Green Faces in 2002, they have gone on to perform all over Australia and the world. They have performed at Parliament House, appeared on the Comedy Channel and entertained countless corporate audiences everywhere as professional corporate comedians. Big Brother Brother Little are ideal for any corporate event or function. They are different, musical, funny, clever, cheeky and full of energy, without being crude or offensive. In fact, they are guaranteed to give your next corporate event that something extra!

CHRIS FRANKLIN

Chris Franklin is an Australian stand-up comedian and former sailor for the Royal Australian Navy. He is most famous for writing the song Bloke (a bogan parody of Meredith Brooks' feminist anthem Bitch), which reached #1 on the ARIA Charts. 

Through his music, Chris emulates the stereotypical Aussie 'bloke' or 'yobbo', frequently appearing in a flannelet shirt and double plugger thongs. Chris' "Hoganesque" style of comedy is aimed largely at the chief perceived concerns of the 'average' Australian: beer, sport and relationships.
