Daniel Connell could easily be described as the ideal Aussie comedian; affable, loveable and hilarious. His observational, dry, often unanticipated comedy has seen him take to stages all over the country. Since 2010 Daniel has quickly established himself in Australian comedy scene, often sharing a stage with big-name Australian comedians including Jimeoin, Glenn Robbins, Denise Scott and Dave Hughes. Daniel has performed at the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow across Australia and Asia.

Aaron Chen

Sydney boy Aaron Chen is a ‘stone cold killer with exquisite mic technique’, delivering fresh, funny and often-absurd comedy. Aaron made his mark in 2017 with his debut solo show entitled The Infinite Faces of Chenny Baby, which toured nationally in front of sold out crowds and high critical praise, including the award for Best Newcomer at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival.

He has supported international comedian Ronny Chieng on his Live Australian Tour, had a featured role in ABC TV’s Ronny Chieng International Student and has also starred in his very own tonight show, aptly named Aaron Chen Tonight.

Mel Buttle

Alongside hit live shows, Mel is a seasoned writer with a weekly column in Queensland’s The Courier Mail and TV writing credits including Please Like Me and This Week Live. Mel has also appeared across Australian TV on programs such as The Weekly with Charlie Pickering and The Project and is a regular on New Zealand’s TV3 weekly program 7 Days.
