JULIA MORRIS

With over twenty years experience performing to crowds all over the world, Julia Morris is one of Australia’s most successful and polished comedy exports and has shared the stage with comedy royalty including Richard Pryor, Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Lewis and Robin Williams.

Julia has been a regular face on Australian television since her debut on New Faces in 1985 and by 1995 she was a household name, hosting or starring in popular shows including Full Frontal, In Melbourne Tonight and Beauty and the Beast.

In November 2011 Julia became Australia’s very first ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and in May 2012 she announced a lead role in House Husbands, a major new drama from Nine Network and Playmaker Media.

As the Lady says, “Dementis Pro Is”! (Translation from Latin = “I’m mad for it”!)

p.s. Yes, Julia’s ‘Lady’ title is real – her husband Dan bought it on the internet as a Christmas present.

MATTHEW HARDY

Matthew Hardy is a Melbourne-based comedian and comedy writer who was the first Australian to cement himself full-time on the UK live circuit. A regular at many international stand-up comedy events, he is renowned for his sly, sarcastic one-liners.

Matt’s TV credits include hosting two series of The Big Schmooze, Foxtel's only Tonight Show on The Comedy Channel and appearing as a panelist/roving reporter on ABC-TV's The Fat. He was part of the UK The Sketch Show writing team, and subsequently for Kelsey Grammer's sketch series on FOX in the US. Hardy also appeared in the last Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his own take on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, along with special guest Julie Dawn Cole, who portrayed Veruca Salt in the 1971 film.

"In heaven, everyone will be as naturally funny as Matthew Hardy".

THE CREW

The Crew is a collection of comics, actors and other talented types with very vivid imaginations and the amazing ability to create stories full of drama, action and comedy from a single-word suggestion from the audience. Masters of improvisation, The Crew are to able create a great scene in 10 seconds or keep it going for 30 minutes, delighting the audience with layered and hilarious tales, songs or quick-fire impro games.

The troupe started performing together at The Comic’s Lounge one Sunday evening during the 2001 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, with no name and no real idea as to what they were going to do. However, they soon realised they had something special - and so did their audiences, which steadily grew as word Impro Sundae got around. Impro Sundae is now the longest-running and most successful weekly improv comedy night in Australia, dazzling thousands of punters since its inception.

NICK CODY

Nick Cody is quickly becoming one of the funniest young comedians in the country. He has already supported some of the biggest names in stand-up and has had two sold-out seasons at the Melbourne Comedy Festival with his full-length, solo shows Lust Actually and It’s Not You, It’s Her.

Nicks brand of stand-up is a unique combination of edgy, thought-provoking material that ranges from brutally honest and uninhibited storytelling to rapid-fire and hilarious social commentary.

His stand-up has also been featured on the ARIA-nominated Dave Hughes is Handy DVD, recently been a guest on Hughesy and Kate on NOVA100 and on NOVA’s Summer Lovin with Ed Kavalee and Tony Martin. Nick is a permanent cast member of the award-winning, TV variety show Studio-A.


FIONA O'LAUGHLIN

Comic, Writer, Broadcaster

When Alice Springs mother of five Fiona O’Loughlin started doing stand-up later in life than most comics, her hilarious stories of housewifery and motherhood were an immediate hit. Her first festival show, for example – Fiona And Her Sister (And Some Weird Guy) earned her the Best Newcomer Award at the 2001 Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF). She’s been enjoying sell-out seasons on the festival circuit ever since. In 2006 she took home the Piece of Wood, an MICF award for funniest show as voted for by other comics. In 2007 and 2008 she was nominated for the MICF’s Barry Award for Best Show.

Fiona has taken her story-based stand-up around the world, headlining LA’s world-renowned Improv Comedy Club, playing repeat seasons in Hong Kong and performing at Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal’s invitation-only Just For Laughs and the UK’s oldest, Leicester Comedy Festival.

Fiona’s also been a hit on the telly with guest appearances on Sunrise, Good News Week, Spicks and Specks, The World Stands Up and a heap of Comedy Festival Galas.

In more recent years Fiona has overcome a well-documented ‘battle with the bottle’. This, like the other aspects of her life, has become ‘material’ for her stand-up. And Fiona is even funnier sober.
