Description

This is going to be very special. The very best in big name and rising Australian Comedy has been assembled for one magical Comedy Gala at Harold Park Hotel on Tuesday 27 June!

Your Emcee, MIKEY ROBINS has become one of Australia’s best-loved, intelligent and in-demand entertainers on the strength of his clever observations, quick one-liners and brilliant, biting banter. Mikey spent seven years behind the microphone as the host of Triple J’s national breakfast show before becoming an audience favourite as team leader on the hugely popular, high rating ‘Good News Week’ and its various offshoots.

Mikey also starred on ABC Radio, Vega, and Triple M and where he currently co-hosts ‘Merrick… and Australia’ weekly with Merrick Watts, and has been seen on ‘Studio 10’, ‘Sunrise’, ‘Spicks & Specks’, ‘The Fat’ and ‘The Today Show’, and featured on two episodes of ‘Australian Story’.

“A wit and raconteur wrapped in a very likeable bloke.” Sydney Morning Herald.

Your Headliner is none other than the razor sharp, daring and no-holds-barred RHYS NICHOLSON, who is quickly gaining international acclaim.

After winning Best Newcomer at the 2012 Sydney Comedy Festival, Rhys has gone on to perform all over the world, including Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dublin’s Vodafone Comedy Festival and London’s prestigious SOHO Theatre, garnering audience and critical praise. They also quite liked his nice jackets.

Known within the industry for unrelenting, rapid fire punchlines, he has supported the likes of Louis CK (US), Amy Schumer (US), Kathy Griffin (US), Fiona O’Loughlin and Wil Anderson. At only twenty five, Rhys has already plastered his jagged face all over TV; as co-host, with Joel Creasey, on ABC TV’s celebrated documentary ‘GayCrashers’, a panelist on ‘Dirty Laundry Live’ and a recurring member of the Channel 7 Morning Show's “Style Squad”, just to name a few.

“Evolving into an incisive wizard of stinging wit,” Sydney Morning Herald.

Your first Featured Support is SIAN CHOYCE (WA), who has been performing standup comedy for 6 years and opened for the legendary Doug Stanhope in Perth in 2014. Also in 2014, she was both a Triple J Raw Comedy State Finalist and a Funny Faces Finalist. Sian was also selected to take part in the Comedy Lounge's Comedy Exchange program in Perth, which fosters new talent and sends them interstate to perform.

Your second Featured Support is RUVEN GOVENDER. This South African/Indian/Kiwi comedian has been featured at every major comedy festival this side of the hemisphere, including a number of television and radio appearances. Having recently featured on TedX, his accolades are nothing short of impressive so catch him before he heads off on his tour of the UK!

"Pocket Rocket,” The Australian Herald
