“Deadpan delivery and exquisite timing.” – Herald Sun
“He has matured into possibly the brightest and biggest prospect in Australian comedy….A unique, powerful and insightful Australian comic voice, one can only hope that Heggie can take his talents to a level which is worthy of them. The best we can hope for Heggie is that next year he’s not at the comedy festival, because he’s busy elsewhere.” ★★★★½ The Herald Sun
With Andrew Stanley is an Irish comedian and TV personality best known for his appearances as host of hit RTÉ 2 TV show I Dare Ya. He has also featured on Neil Delamere’s Just For Laughs, RTÉ’s The Cafe, Podge and Rodge, Liffey Laughs and Tubridy Tonight.
Working his way around the Irish standup circuit, Stanley began playing in rooms such as The Comedy Cellar, which he would later go on to run, and the Laughter Lounge as well as clubs around the country and in the UK. He featured in a number of TV programmes in Ireland and the UK at the time including Young, Gifted & Broke and Take The Mic both on ITV.
And Emma Zammit – Emma was forced to begin a standup comedy career in early 2008 after her sister decided it was time to move her MC Hammer moves and one liners out of the lounge room and enrolled her in a stand up comedy writing course for the sake of family harmony. After graduation, she was inspired to work the hard yards and tighten her comedy antics on Sydney’s open mic stages.
She has since won the prestigious “Quest for the Best” new comedy talent search as well as performed in the NSW state finals for “Raw Comedy”.
Emma was chosen from amongst the best new acts in the country to perform in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s “ Comedy Zone”. Emma then went on to perform in Queensland as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow.
Emma showcased her first solo show “My Emmoirs: A Tale of Two Cities” at the Wild West Perth Comedy Festival which was nominated for the “People’s Choice Award”.
“Emma Zammit did an excellent job of keeping the audience bemused….her delivery and comic timing was spot on” – Australian Stage
