Quirk hisses at his audience mid show, “I’m like a snake… I am more afraid of you,” eyeballing us like a python. It is in these looks to the audience, and ability to generate tension and suspense through the storytelling that he holds the audience in his snake like trance.

To a comedian, anything personal is also potential material and Jayasinha mines a lot of his private life in a very engaging and tight show.

If there’s a more wholesome man in comedy, I simply don’t believe you. Adam Hills is a veteran of Australian stand-up and panel show royalty.

Ben Kochan is moonlighting from his job as a tennis coach to perform at the MICF 2021. He comes across as a very sweet, slightly nerdy kinda guy whose shtick is a suitcase full of props and some rather good musical jingles.

Who knows if their stories are fact or phony? they work them so well together, I am laughing too much to care.

Piano Mill’s success has been due to it offering an alternative means of experiencing fresh, original music in the spirit of a sonic adventure staged outdoors.

In lesser hands this could easily bomb, but the heady topical mix, the well-timed delivery and the weaved-in references to his personal life make Ballard worth seeing, regardless of one's political and sexual orientations.

This absurdist comedy duo take you on a non-linear run from the mob to Italy and back in order to save themselves from digging their own graves.
