  • Andrea Hubert - Week

    A surprisingly uplifting debut on medication, night sweats, stoned teenage philosophy and how putting on socks is life's most challenging and meaningless endeavour.

  • Kiri Pritchard McLean - Hysterical Woman

    Tackling genetics, gender and being a comedian who happens to be a woman, Kiri handles a host of thorny issues with a down to earth sense of her own ridiculousness. Settle down for an hour of whip smart stand-up with an angle on anthropology that's as funny as it is clever.

  • Phil Nichol - The Naked Racist

    Canadian Phil Nicol’s explosive, chaotic energy sets his shows miles apart from the more commercial, safe, and observational. Get your sweaty thrills as he takes us though one recklessly wild journey through the streets of Amsterdam, and one hell of a full frontal climax. Follow @philnichol

  • Patrick Turpin - To Me, You Are Perfect

    After almost three decades, it's time for Turps to curl back into the foetal, reconnect the umbilical, and tell himself that everything will be alright. A show from a heteroflexible white lad, living a life without the loveliest of true loves, and the f*ckiest of true f*cks. Follow: @explorepatri...

  • John Hastings - Integrity

    John's visa is expiring, his friends are fighting and there's been a murder (yes, an actual murder). This deft show about one disastrous day is a compelling, intense and brilliantly written piece of comedy storytelling. Follow: @thejohnhastings
