Comedian Info:

Steven J Whiteley:
Steven J Whiteley draws on his experiences growing up in Redcliffe and attending Clontarf, or as he calls it, “Clonnarf”, Beach High School to create his bogan comedy. His bogan take on everything from hard rubbish collection to Southern Cross tattoos to Ned Kelly have audiences in stitches. He’s currently working on a show for next years Adelaide Fringe Festival.

With a comedy career spanning a near decade, this South African Indian immigrant found himself beneath the spotlight as a finalist in the 2002 National Triple J Raw Comedy Competition, finalist in the National Green Faces Comedy Competition and Winner of the Jupiter’s Casino Comedy Competition. In 2004 Desh made his national television debut on the NRL Footyshow and Rove.

Mitch McCutcheon:
Mitchell McCutcheon has been doing comedy around Brisbane for the past 2 years. He recently won the Queensland State Final for RAW Comedy and the inaugural Just Sayin’ Comedy Competition last year.

Jacob Lingard:
Covering a wide range of personal topics from weight loss to getting a pacemaker at 20 years old, Jacob’s comedy is a social commentary based on personal experience that is as captivating as it is hilarious. What many describe as, “Electrifying!” his performances have earned the respect of audiences and comedians alike all over Brisbane

Jennifer Burke:
Jenni’s career in comedy started at the 2001 Raw Comedy Festival where she was wild carded through to the semi-finals, performed at 5 other local competitions the same year, and then took a 10 year break. In 2011 she started working for Youstandup, signed up for one of the comedy courses and hasn’t looked back. She’s now a member of the Young Guns of Comedy and has hit the open mic scene in Brisbane, Gold Coast and the Northern Rivers. With her dry wit and razor sharp one liners, she’s not afraid to talk about the hard issues, like her ambiguous sexuality, on-line dating… and flashing.

Ron Hailes:
A late starter to Comedy, Ron loves to laugh at himself - all 150 KG of it. Looking at life through the eyes of a large person Ron delivers comedy in laid back relaxed style sure to make you laugh. Some people play Golf - Ron does comedy which he says is far less frustrating.

Marcus Fahy:
Marcus Fahy was expelled from Benowa State School in 1991 after performing an inappropriate comedy routine at the school’s variety concert. Marcus put his comedy dreams on hold so he could concentrate fulltime on being self-destructive. Twenty-one years later Marcus has decided to give stand-up comedy another go. He is currently performing on the open-mic scene in Brisbane and Gold Coast.
