     - Sunday 25 September

    Doors Open: 3PM. Dinner: 3PM. SHOW STARTS: 4PM

    Created and Performed by Matt Elsbury

    Featuring Emma Baker

    The songs and stories you learned as a kid look different through the eyes of an adult, and even more bizarre under the comedic microscope of Matt Elsbury. Joined by children's entertainer Emma Bakey,Once Upon a WTF? asks: what kind of freak gets a baby to nap on a treetop? Did Jack and Jill get the medical help they needed? And what exactly was the point of the Grand Old Duke of York's military man-oeuvres?

    Make your kids a friend's or relative's problem on a Sunday afternoon and join Matt and Emma at the Comic's Lounge, along with a special guest (Lawrence Mooney/Dave O'Neil). Together they will look at childhood, parenthood, and the wisdom of singing to kids about disappearing ducks or the bubonic plague. 

    Two performances only of this brand-new show.

     - Saturday 1 October

    Doors Open: 6 :30 PM. Dinner: 6 :30 PM. SHOW STARTS: 8 PM

    He headlined and got an encore in his very first stand up attempt. Hung, the world’s first, best and tallest Vietnamese comic guarantees to spin your mind, dazzle your imagination and awaken your funny zones.

    29th April 1975, the last day of the Vietnam war, a nine year old boy jumped onto a leaking prawn trawler on Saigon River with a box of dried biscuits and some seasick pills and managed to survive thirst and hunger to cheat death to become one of the first Vietnamese boat people to land in Australia.

    His movies include The Wogboy, Fat Pizza, True Love and Chaos, Broken Hill and Sensitive New Age Killer.

    Hung is a favourite at Montreal Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival

    An author, musician, clown, actor and all round song and dance man…Hung’s stand up work and theatre shows are always edgy, satirical, political and his musical send ups go straight for the jocular. 

    His first book ‘The Yellow Peril From Sin City’ was released through Penguin. His second, a children’s book ‘BarryNoodles & DaKillerBs’ is with Random House.

    A constant on the world festival stage and TV since 1988, Hung has made documentaries for the ABC, SBS, Discovery Channel. TV includes CNN, MTV, The Muppet Show, Wow Wow[Japan], London Weekend Television and all throughout Asia.

    Joe is one of Australia’s top comedy exports and with his massive cult following, he crisscrosses the globe performing his unique brand of comedy (performing in both English and Italian) on both sides of the Atlantic where he sells out in the United Kingdom, the USA and Canada. 

    He holds the record for the fastest selling comedy show ever in Canada, where he is one of the biggest names in comedy. The Toronto Sun labelled him “Pure comic genius” not only for his routines and comedic output (5 live albums and 5 live DVD’s) but also for his ability to market himself through the internet.

    His shows are completely clean, without one swear word throughout and are therefore happily attended by teenagers, their parents and even their grandparents. It’s a show for the whole family and suitable for children aged 12+.

    Doors Open: 3PM. Dinner: 3PM. SHOW STARTS: 4PM

    Created and Performed by Matt Elsbury

    Featuring Emma Baker

    The songs and stories you learned as a kid look different through the eyes of an adult, and even more bizarre under the comedic microscope of Matt Elsbury. Joined by children's entertainer Emma Bakey,Once Upon a WTF? asks: what kind of freak gets a baby to nap on a treetop? Did Jack and Jill get the medical help they needed? And what exactly was the point of the Grand Old Duke of York's military man-oeuvres?

    Make your kids a friend's or relative's problem on a Sunday afternoon and join Matt and Emma at the Comic's Lounge, along with a special guest (Lawrence Mooney/Dave O'Neil). Together they will look at childhood, parenthood, and the wisdom of singing to kids about disappearing ducks or the bubonic plague. 

    Two performances only of this brand-new show.

    He headlined and got an encore in his very first stand up attempt. Hung, the world’s first, best and tallest Vietnamese comic guarantees to spin your mind, dazzle your imagination and awaken your funny zones.

    29th April 1975, the last day of the Vietnam war, a nine year old boy jumped onto a leaking prawn trawler on Saigon River with a box of dried biscuits and some seasick pills and managed to survive thirst and hunger to cheat death to become one of the first Vietnamese boat people to land in Australia.

    His movies include The Wogboy, Fat Pizza, True Love and Chaos, Broken Hill and Sensitive New Age Killer.

    Hung is a favourite at Montreal Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival

    An author, musician, clown, actor and all round song and dance man…Hung’s stand up work and theatre shows are always edgy, satirical, political and his musical send ups go straight for the jocular. 

    His first book ‘The Yellow Peril From Sin City’ was released through Penguin. His second, a children’s book ‘BarryNoodles & DaKillerBs’ is with Random House.

    A constant on the world festival stage and TV since 1988, Hung has made documentaries for the ABC, SBS, Discovery Channel. TV includes CNN, MTV, The Muppet Show, Wow Wow[Japan], London Weekend Television and all throughout Asia.

    Natural and unmistakably Australian, Hughsey’s laconic style thinly disguises one of this country's fastest comedic minds. Turning everyday foibles into rich and hilarious routines has made Hughesy the biggest name in Australian comedy. For 12 years Hughesy made up one half of Melbourne's Nova breakfast team and for 5 years he co-hosted Network Ten’s The Project, not to mention 11 years on Ten’s AFL show Before the Game.

    While he never left stand-up behind, in late 2013 Dave shocked Australia by announcing that he would be giving up his radio and television jobs to go back to his roots touring a brand new stand up show for an entire year. 

    In 2015 Dave returned to the airwaves with long time co-host Kate Langbroek joining the team at KIIS and Mix FM in a national drive radio program and he joined the team at Channel 9's The Footy Show.

    In 2016 so far, Hughesy has been touring the country with his brand new stand up show Sweet; he continues his national drive radio show on KIIS and Mix; he regularly joins the panel on The Footy Show; and because that is obviously not enough, he hosted Australia’s Got Talent – the most successful entertainment format in the world today, for Channel 9.
