THE LINE UP:
Georgie Carroll is a nurse, wife, mum and comedian. With a nursing career spanning two continents and a fast rising award-winning comedy career currently conquering Australia, Georgie's unique take on life is one of the country's most sought after acts. Georgie moved to South Australia in 2009 with her husband and three kids, and soon life began to offer many more options than she'd ever had before. She exploded onto Adelaide's comedy scene mid 2010 and fast tracked to the coveted RAW comedy national finals at the 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Charles Barrington would like you to believe he's an international sensation - a well-travelled thespian and raconteur who's hobnobbed with the rich and powerful and performed in front of many and varied audiences, from legions of fans to armies of critics and, on one particular occasion, a crowd of ten billion insects. The truth however, is that this hilarious man is not half as famous as he ought to be. Barrington has his audiences rollicking with scatterbrain routine. Sports an accent that is Sean Connery-meets-Andrew Bolt. An inspired comedian.
Pestell is something different but don't let this nice guy act fool you. A gifted storyteller with a quick wit, he has performed all around the country and beyond with his own brand of inoffensive but still confronting humour. A regular audience member to one of Pestell's shows would know that he is not afraid to go off topic, risking his reputation with calculated recklessness to provide the audience with a unique live experience.
Born an only child (or 'super first born') Eliza has always been striving to satisfy her need for attention. Since her offical comedy debut at RAW comedy 2005, she has been playing gigs all over Adelaide. She was selected to compete in Green Faces in Canberra in 2009, was a co-writer and performer in the politcally-themed 'Flamingo Factor', has been a part of 'Live Girls' since 2008, 'Adelaide Comedy Improv' since 2008, starred in the 2010 ensemble Fringe show 'The Best of Adelaide Comedy' and much more.
