    POSTPONED – MICHELLE BRASIER – AVERAGE...

    A solo hour from the multi award winning co-creator (and pants half) of Double Denim, countless collaborations with Aunty Donna and Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell. Michelle is building you an hour of music and story-telling. Average is a bear who is frightened of hibernation and very proud of how tall she’s gotten.  Heartbreaking and hilarious, this is a show about grief and joy and possums and sheds. Good luck, little bear.  WINNER DIRECTORS CHOICE AWARD MICF 2018 (DOUBLE DENIM ADVENTURE SHOW) WINNER SYD COMEDY FESTIVAL BEST NEWCOMER 2018 (DOUBLE DENIM) MOST OUTSTANDING SHOW NOMINEE – MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL 2021  Average Bear is an ode to staring into the voi  More info...

    BRODI SNOOK

    Small town big idiot and general sarcasmo, Brodi Snook was once told on a first date that she was a handful. May he rest in peace. Join Chortle’s 2020 Best Newcomer (UK) and two-time RAW Comedy state finalist (AUS) as she navigates the toxic sausage-fest that is life and wonders why her opinions do not get her laid. Hostile, hilarious and heartfelt, Handful was named in the UK Telegraph’s Best Comedy Shows of Edinburgh Fringe 2019. It also made lots of men on Twitter deeply angry- Brodi’s personal favourite achievement. As seen on Just For Laughs on Channel 10 and the Comedy Channel. As heard on BBC Radio. Writer for Kinne Tonight. **** – The Skinny Snook could well be going places   More info...

    TOR SNYDER HORSE RIDER

    Let’s just be clear from the start, this show has nothing to do with riding horses. In fact, Tor has only ever been on two horses in her entire life and it was pretty scary! This is a show with 45mins of jokes, stories and the thought of getting back on that theoretical horse after the sh*t show that was 2020. You’re guaranteed to laugh as she covers everything from growing up in Canada with dreams of being a Mountie. To dating in her 30’s (should we keep getting on that horse?) while trying to start a new business selling secondhand furniture. So saddle up and join Tor Snyder as she takes you on the incredible comedic journey, “Tor Snyder Horse Rider”. The West  More info...

    GEN FRICKER

    You remember Gen Fricker from her five years on triple j, jumping from Weekend Arvos to Lunch to Drive. Or you know her stand-up career – she made her debut at the RAW Comedy finals and has since opened for Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart and Reggie Watts. She’s sold out performances across a bunch of Aussie and Kiwi comedy festivals and regularly pops up on Comedy Central, Just For Laughs and Have You Been Paying Attention?. She’s back with a new hour of stand-up – just as silly, horny and weird as ever.  ‘Gen Fricker is a genius… hilariously, unapologetically weird.’ Herald Sun ASTOR LOUNGE: Unreserved Seating Licensed 18+ – Patrons under 18 can attend wi  More info...

    POSTPONED – Cam Knight: Straighty 180 (new d...

    Four years ago Cam pulled a complete 180. He stopped drinking and his partying ways, deciding to become the best version of himself he could be by focusing on his kids, his family and the thing he loves doing the most, stand up comedy. This isn’t a whimsical tale about any of that it’s the direct result of it. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose… or some shit. AS SEEN ON Just For Laugh Sydney on Comedy Channel, Drunk History Ch 10, The Other Guy on Stan and a bunch of other cool stuff. Google it.

    POSTPONED – Jacques Barrett (new date to be ...

    Jacques’ Netflix algorithm saw he was turning 40 and straight up flooded his viewing list with stuff about The Second World War. He’d love to do a show about something else but it’s all he’s watched for 6 straight months. *Show won’t ALL be about WW2 **No refunds His 11th year as a professional world-conquering headliner, Jacques is at the top of his game: Ageing like wine, eating too much cheese. Expect another meticulously written hour of rock-solid stand up, based loosely on Dub Dub Deuce but mainly focusing on punchlines. Praise for JB from the people who count: ‘This man is a Championi!’ – Jimeoin ‘Jacques is one of those comedians I’ll leave the gree  More info...
