Jonas Holt, as Donald Trump and Tony Abbott will send shivers down your spine. Holt offers a rapid fire machine of comedy. Legendary impersonations, jokes so clever you’ll be lucky to catch half of them. A sort after professional comedian, party superhero and radio guest. He’s been described as a sheer natural force of comedy coming at you like a comedy tsunami!

Amanda Gray has been performing for 8 years in all sorts of places, from grungy Newcastle pubs to the Sydney Comedy Store to the shores of Scotland and the late night clubs of New York. No gig is too small, too big, or too far away. She has a relentless assault that’s delivered with a deadpan, straight-faced style, packing a huge armoury of laughs.

Annaliese Constable is a writer, performer and queer rights activist working across standup, queer performance and theatre. Annaliese has been a regular contributor to Erotic Fan Fiction, Confession Booth, Queer Stories, Story Club and FBi’s Versus with Eddie Sharp. Annaliese’s comic, autobiographical work explores themes of class, gender, disability, addiction, mental illness, sex, and sexuality.

Suren Jayemanne is a comedian, writer, and qualified (but not practicing) chartered accountant, Suren Jayemanne is fast becoming one of the must see acts in Australian comedy.
Suren began as a graduate in the corporate tax team at KPMG in 2009, but we're guessing you're not here to hear about that... A year or two later, Suren dipped his toes into the world of stand-up comedy, motivated mostly by jealousy, after a close friend's success, though he wouldn't admit to that now.

Bec Charlwood began her comedy career just a few short years ago and has leapt fences, run miles and gone from strength to strength. Or more literally, from Perth to Sydney. She’s hard working, got a bunch of spunk and is making her mark on the comedy scene.

Kathryn has been heavily involved in the Sydney theatre scene for many years, she’s recently transitioned into comedy and has been performing all over Sydney. Her queer, relatable and boisterous charm has her climbing the ranks of Sydney comedy. Alan Rutledge called her a prodigy once.
