Frontier Comedy are thrilled to announce the debut Australian tour of American stand-up comedian Chris D’Elia this April!
Known and loved by Australian audiences through his starring roles in NBC sitcoms Whitney and Undateable and Comedy Central’s Workaholics, this will be the first time that Australian fans can catch D’Elia live on stage in all his glory.
The comedy star will play five nights at the Athenaeum Theatre for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival plus two nights at the Comedy Store for the Sydney Comedy Festival this April.
"Chris D’Elia is an extremely gifted comedian." - Bustle (US)
"Masterful stand-up...Some of the gems D’Elia delivers will be funny forever." - Rare (US)
D’Elia is quickly becoming one of the most sought after comedians and actors in the comedy world. He has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Boston Legal, Monk, Glory Daze, Live Nude Comedy and Comedy Central Presents, as well as his own acclaimed stand-up specials Incorrigible on Netflix and White Male Black Comic on Comedy Central.
In 2005 D’Elia made a New Year’s resolution to perform on stage, and less than a decade from his 2 January 2006 debut, he has gone from open mics to sold-out international tours. D’Elia performed on Funny Or Die’s inaugural Oddball Comedy & Curiosities Tour (2013) alongside great Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords and was invited back the following year, performing alongside comedy giants Louis CK and Amy Schumer.
In 2015, D’Elia appeared on Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber alongside Kevin Hart, Snoop Dogg, Hannibal Buress, Martha Stewart and everyone’s favourite ‘Anchorman’ Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell). Despite the roasting, Justin Bieber still calls D’Elia his favourite comedian and has even made surprise appearances during his sets.
"An onslaught of fantastic jokes." - Bustle (US)
"raucous, high energy act." - SanDiego.Com (US)
"animated, with a spectrum of facial expressions and a knack for voices, he owned the stage." - TheaterJones (US)
A regular at all the main Hollywood comedy clubs where he performs several times a week, D’Elia frequently sells out tours of the US and Canada; delivering segue after segue of observational jokes, accents and impressions.
Don’t miss Chris D’Elia’s Australian debut this April, make sure you get in early for tickets to see this off-beat, high-energy comedy natural live!
