From the depths of the jungle in I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, to performing at the iconic Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and raved about by the late-great Joan Rivers – Joel Creasey is now one of the best known, hottest and most sought-after comedians in Australia. At just 24 years of age the relentlessly hilarious Creasey wins legions of fans for his intelligent observations, acerbic style, pop-culture expertise and unrivalled story-telling abilities. If you haven’t seen Joel Creasey yet, it’s about time you do.
The audience will roar with laughter as they are treated to the award-winning comedy stylings of Sammy J. The comedian, writer and songbird has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting and inventive performers on the international comedy scene. A regular sellout performer at international festivals including Montreal and Melbourne, Sammy J has also received five-star reviews in Edinburgh and London’s West End. Sammy J’s performances as ‘Sammy J & Randy’ have been so popular that the duo have also made regular television appearances and now have their own TV show.
Mikey Robins is a household name, known for his quick one-liners and impeccable timing, the intelligent and likeable all-rounder will join the January Laugh Your Pants Off line-up.Having spent years behind the microphone on Triple J, Triple M and Vega, Mikey won the hearts of the nation through his television roles on Good News Week, The Jesters, You Have Been Watching as well as regular guest spots on Sunrise and Spicks and Specks. Mikey is also an author having co-written three books and is a regular columnist for The Daily Telegraph, GQ and Men’s Style.
Fellow Good News Week alumni Claire Hooper has long been considered a stand-out in the comedy world, mostly for her wonderfully inventive, skilful and completely engaging stage shows. She has appeared on Rove Live, ABC TV’s The Sideshow, the Comedy Channel’s Stand Up! Australia and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Great Debate with Stephen K Amos and Greg Fleet. In 2015, Claire landed her dream job as co-host of The Great Australian Bake Off alongside the seriously funny Mel Buttle as well as judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran. Claire will have the audience in stitches when she performs at Jupiters Theatre.
The jam-packed night of entertainment will continue with Harley Breen. Harley has blown away audiences from the sugarcane fringes of Queensland to the world’s largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe. Regularly headlining around Australia, Harley has won over a legion of fans with his accessible and relatable comedy. Consistently unpredictable, Breen’s sets seamlessly move from side-splitting material about the foibles of being a new-age dad to dodgy tales of his beloved old Kingswood; all without missing a beat. A true professional, Breen always leaves the crowd wanting more.
Joining the laughs will also be Australia’s adopted son of comedy Tommy Deen. Born and raised in the US, Tommy now calls Sydney home, and continues to thrill audiences right across the globe with his amusing take on the world around us. The American stand-up comedy star’s astute, observational comedic style never fails to impress with his impressive CV including appearances on Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Stand Up Australia, Rove Live, Joker Poker, Sunrise, The Today Show and The Sideshow.
Adding to an incredible night of live entertainment will be the sidesplittingly funny Demi Larder and Rhi Down.
