About performers:

MC - Pradeepa Timmermans
Pradeepa Timmermans, Melbourne comedian, has spread her infectious sense of humour and opened for Dave O'Neil, Tom Gleeson, Anne Edmonds, Elliot Goblet, Joe White & David Quirk. She has a podcast ‘Uncomfortable Truths’ where she interviews Melbourne based comics, talking about the things that are kept hush and shoved under a carpet made of pretences. She is a bit of a smug vegan.

James G Warren
James G Warren is a bald white Tasmanian man on the autism spectrum who delivers mail for a living and punchlines for the love of it. A Connoisseur of comedy, good friends, and broccoli. MICF Class Clowns Champion 2013

“Awkward and Dry” - Funny Tonne

Oliver Hunter
Loveable, laconic and a little bit dark, Oliver has been cracking jokes about living with a disability for over 6 years. Originally hailing from Albury, Oliver has played all the major venues in his local area - the Wagga Comedy Festival, the Riverina Comedy Club and the Ulladulla Comedy Festival. To balance this level of glamour, he has also performed at the Hollywood Improv (yes, the actual Hollywood Improv), as well as comedy clubs in Dallas and Seattle. In 2021 Oliver was chosen to appear in Sydney Comedy Festival’s ‘Friends with Government Benefits’ stand-up comedy showcase featuring three hilarious comics with disabilities. When not wearing his comedian hat, Oliver is a disability consultant and keynote speaker and is definitely not inspirational.

Grant Cater
Grant is a lanky, gay, aggravated stand-up comic with minimal facial expression. Described by many as a lovable curmudgeon. Grant has a rare Mitochondrial Condition Called: KSS (Kerns Seyers Syndrome). Stand-up comedy is my dream, and won't let that get in the way of it!

Thomas Banks
Thomas grew up on a country property on the outskirts of Geelong where he spent most of his childhood, but now he’s based in inner city Melbourne. Being the 4th born out of 5 children, he learnt from a young age that you have to speak up and be heard if you want to get anywhere in your life.

Max Max
Dare to dive into the emotional black hole that is Max Max. Max Max's comedy journey began only a few short months ago, but his prowess will make you believe the universe wanted him to do comedy. He'll make you laugh, he'll make you cry, and often, make you question your sanity (but only after his nervous shit)!
