It's that time again where we take a moment to give the stage entirely to the bright-eyed and fresh-faced new comics out there making their way up the slippery ladder of stand up comedy.

This Thursday is one of those nights. We generally have a few of them on every week, but this week the night is theirs, all theirs!

We've pulled together a mix of comics who are in their first year or so of doing comedy. Some are fresh out of the box, some have been doing the rounds, and some have become downright prolific.

And so, we hand them over to you… Sydney's best comedy audience. We hope you like them.

To host you through the ups and downs and keep it mostly up is the always amazing Dave Eastgate

MC - Dave Eastgate

Dave Eastgate has gone from stunt shows to television shows, theatre to feature film and New York Comedy Clubs to the Sydney Opera House via the Tokyo Punk Scene and the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He is an overnight sensation, 14 years in the making.

Dave’s passion for performing began as a child growing up in Papua New Guinea where his father was stationed with the Australian Defence Force. The family moved to the Gold Coast when Dave was a teenager and he began honing his talent performing characters, stunts and music in the Queensland resort town’s famous theme parks, theatre restaurants and comedy clubs from the age of 16.
In 2001 at the age of 21 Dave headed to the oriental city of Osaka to performing at Universal Studios Japan, he made several television and radio appearances performing in fluent Japanese! Then after a short stint street performing in the US, Canada and the UK Dave returned to Oz in ‘06 and blitzed the scene, touring around the country and supporting a number international acts including Robin Williams who described Dave’s act as “f*#%ing beautiful.”

Dave’s has done crowd warm up for every large scale Australian TV show and boasts a long list of satisfied corporate clients.
