Amos Gil 'The Sheeple's Champion' at Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Weekly Award for Best Comedy Perth FRINGE WORLD 2021

He’s one of Australia’s favourite comedy sons – in equal measures hilarious, challenging and original. Amos Gill’s comedy has won fans and accolades across Australia and the USA.

Award-winning comedian Amos has conquered Australia’s comedy scene and is currently one of the hottest new prospects on the US Comedy circuit. The former ABC TV and breaky radio host has played the Sydney Opera House and Madison Square Garden, performed in multiple countries touring with Jim Jefferies, and hosted Adelaide’s breakfast show for Australia’s biggest radio broadcaster.

You’ve seen his stand-up on TV like Just for Laughs’ Australia: Live (filmed at the Sydney Opera House live for the Comedy Channel) and the biggest showcase of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow.

Don't miss Amos’ brand-new hour of red-hot stand-up. If you're in need of a comedy Sheeple's Champion – Amos – is (possibly) your man.
