Headliner Shayne Hunter has been crushing onstage for over a decade. In 2010 he was selected for the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival Comedy Zone. He has toured every capital city in Australia, plus South East Asia, Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar and Thailand as part of Magners International Comedy Festival. In 2020 Shayne started producing his own original, wild and fast paced show Crowd Control, where eight comedians compete against each other to see who can do the funniest crowd interaction. This birthed Shayne's reputation as one of the best crowd work comedians on the circuit. "Shayne Hunter is an Australian comedy maverick. Intellect in disguise, Shayne's smart, poignant and socially aware comedy pushes boundaries in pubs, clubs, arts centres - any setting is a suitable backdrop for his biting, big-laugh perspective. Don't miss Shayne's thoughtful, often manic comedy. It can be vicious, it can be raw, but it's always hilarious. - Josh Armstrong, Promoter at BASED Comedy.

Host Anna Brennan and her Drag King alter ego Bruce Hwy have been telling their raw and anecdotal brand of storytelling onstage for ten years. Anna has produced and performed at hundreds of comedy shows; including a ten performance run of her solo show Tinderella at this year's Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
"She's supremely likeable, with a flair for the physically comic flourish. When she's in full flight Brennan is a wonder to behold." Kate Mulqueen- ARTShub.
Bruce Hwy is on a mission to smash negative bogan stereotypes. He's the loose yet lovable mate we've all got, and feel the need to warn our posh friends about. Bruce Hwy hit the standup scene in April this year and has just launched his debut parody song Marshamallows in the Fire:
Kody Maverick is a fresh, friendly face on the comedy circuit who had the privilege of performing at this year's Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He was raised by a single mum and will be your sister's new favourite comic in no time.
Max Leishman is an emerging talent who gets away with a lot onstage because audience's can't help but like him. He came runner-up in the 2022 Sunshine Coast Comedy Festival's Laughable competition and is definitely one to watch.
