Some of you may remember Chris Franklin from his No1 hit song BLOKE but that is just the beginning Chris started performing comedy in October ’97 and in just six months had won the prestigious triple j Raw Comedy Award for Australia’s best new talent. It didn’t take him long to rise to feature status. His accomplishments are outstanding and they include:

– Grand Finalist National Green Faces Comedy Competition in Canberra
– Double Platinum sales for his hit single ‘Bloke’
– Aria Nomination ‘Best Comedy Release’ for ‘Bloke

Chris has released a further single which was nominated in the 2001 Aria Awards for ‘Best Comedy Release’ entitled ‘Mullet Head’ a parody of the hit single ‘Gimme Head’ by The Radiators. His TV credits include The Footy Show, Headliners, Recovery, Stand Up Australia & Good News Week (among others).

“Campbell is a comic genius. At the very least, he is most certainly unique” ★★★★ Herald Sun
And Dave Williams – With over ten years in the business Dave as established himself as one of Australia’s most in demand comedians. Dave is a veteran of Fringe and comedy Festivals both here and abroad, having starred in one man shows as well as ensemble shows. Dave has performed at the “Melbourne International Comedy Festival” every year since 1999 with a new show each year! A testament to his writing ability.
With a solid background in acting, Dave uses strong characters and has a tendency to improvise lending his show a distinctly theatre flavour, and his ability to adapt his performance from pubs and clubs to theatre and television ensures Dave will continue to work alongside Australia’s best known comedians
He was chosen to perform in “The MICF Montreal Show Case” and the “Australian MICF Road Show” which tours nationally.
“David Williams who has a Jim Carrey look and manner brings the house down by explaining that road rage is caused by too many drivers listening to Shania Twain playing on their car radio.” – USA Today
