The funniest comedians from this year’s Sydney Comedy Festival are hitting the road and bringing all-star comedy showcase to Merimbula.
Come along to the shows and you will be left sore from belly laughs due to this jam packed night of pure entertainment.
MC for the night is Ray Badran, who is rapidly making a name for himself as one of the country’s finest comedy MC’s with his astute observational humour.
Ray Badran has been a regular on the Australian club and festival circuit for the past 5 years. In this time Ray has honed his performance skills and material and is now considered at the forefront of a new generation of comedians who are both edgy and inventive.
In 2014 Ray was hand-selected by The Sydney Comedy Festival Directors to host the prestigious Breakout Comedy Tour which travels to Brisbane, Perth and Sydney and showcases the brightest emerging comedians in the country.
With multiple television writing credits and mounting radio and television appearances Ray is widely regarded as one of the hottest rising stars of Australian comedy.
Highlights from the showcase will include the genre-defying Michael Workman, energetic 'tour-de-force' Nikki Britton, plus way more to be announced.
A genre-defying fable spinner with a captivating imagination, Michael Workman creates unexpected worlds, rich characters and many, many laughs. His gentle yet powerfully poignant work stands apart from the rapid fire gags of conventional comedy.
Although mostly known for his exquisite festival shows, Michael is also a visual artist, a voiceover guy, a composer/musician and a knockout stand up.
Nikki Britton is a warm, energetic “tour-de-force” who has been hand picked to tour the country with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow and Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tours for the last four years.
Also an actor, Nikki has recently returned from a two-year national tour of the juggernaut one-woman comedy play, 51 Shades of Maggie Muff and is about to go into development with a new project for the ABC.
This will be the fourth time the Showcase will come to Club Sapphire and the organisers are expecting another hilarious show.
