(Friday 13th) With Amanda Gray – A relentless assault that’s delivered with a deadpan, straight-faced style, packing a huge armoury of comedy laughs. No topic is sacred, no taboo untouchable. Amanda is a must see with her hysterically funny hate lists and is on top of the must see comedians list in Australia.
(Saturday 14th) With Katie Burch – Dry, bullet proof jokes and absolutely hilarious prove to make one thing certain – Katie is one of the most booked comedians in the country. A style that is both appealing, unique, flowing with deft charm and has audiences raving about her. She must be seen before she costs a great deal more.
Winner of NSW Raw Comedy and the National Runner up in JJJ RAW – Katie Burch is set to be one of Australia’s most popular comedians. Her unique comic voice has been delighting critics across the country.
