Frontier Comedy - Sydney & Perth Comedy Festival Additions 2019

In a stellar second announcement, Frontier Comedy is thrilled to reveal our next round of shows for the 2019 Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals!

In addition to already announced shows, heading to Sydney Comedy Festival this April and May are Amos Gill, on a brief break from his US comedy conquest, the lad once dubbed ‘Perth’s Teen Comedic Sensation’ by Scoop Magazine, Ciaran Lyons, and national RAW Comedy finalist, viral video sensation and proudly Indigenous comedian Craig Quartermaine. Craig is also now on sale at Perth Comedy Festival.

These three rapidly rising Australian comedy stars join already announced shows from UK comedy legend Jeff Green, content creating megastars Neel Kolhatkar, Alex Williamson and Christian Hull, critically acclaimed comedian and podcaster Alice Fraser and US headliner and trainee wrestler Ron Funches.

Please see below for short blurbs and listing information.


AMOS GILL
ALMOST FAMOS
APRIL 2019
Presented by Frontier Comedy

He’s traded hit107 for a comedy career in LA, but Adelaide’s favourite ex-brekky host is back for another festival stint before he heads back to the dirty streets of California to melt the minds of US comedy lovers!

With a brand new hour of gut-bustingly funny comedy every year, the ridiculously prolific Amos Gill has already made a name for himself in the States, where he performs a few times a year at all the hottest comedy clubs in LA.

Amos hosted Adelaide’s breakfast show for Australia’s biggest radio broadcaster, is Jim Jefferies’ favourite Aussie opening act, and has done comedy on all sorts of TV including Just for Laughs’ Australia: Live (filmed at the Sydney Opera House live for the Comedy Channel) and ABC TV’s All-Stars Gala (the biggest showcase of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival).

Amos is at his best with an hour of stand up and no contractual restrictions. He sold out festivals all over the country last year, so make sure you get in early for tickets!

★★★★★ ‘Utterly hilarious’ – Everything Adelaide

CIARAN LYONS
WHAT’S NEXT?
MAY 2019

CRAIG QUARTERMAINE
NOVELTY ACT
MAY 2019
Presented by Frontier Comedy

Savage, slick and hilarious Craig Quartermaine (Tonightly, triple j’s One Night Stand-Up) is back with another lovingly barbed show packed with personal stories and acerbic insights.

Late last year Craig performed on the first ever comedy stage at triple j’s One Night Stand live show, subsequently earning over 2 million views for the clip of his set. His clip may have struck a chord with comedy fans and horse-lovers around the world, but the plethora of TV and radio appearances, European tours and festival seasons Craig has already clocked up in his relatively young comedy career prove that this razor-sharp comedian is no novelty act.

Craig is back with another show packed with his take on race, politics – and enjoying life as an Indigenous Australian and Horse Husband.

‘This playful, revelatory, charming, devilish and sometimes pointed show earmark Quartermaine as a witty and relevant comic voice’ – Chortle (UK)

‘Incisive material, laugh-out-loud humour and perfect deliverance and punchlines… a triumph! Craig Quartermaine is rocking the world of comedy’ – Weekend Notes

ALICE FRASER
MYTHOS
MAY 2019
Presented by Frontier Comedy

Alice Fraser (The Bugle, Tea with Alice, Trollplay) could do a lot of stuff, if she could decide what to do. A show that picks a line and sticks to it, and does a lot of other things en route. Is beauty truth? Is truth beautiful? Let Alice tell you. Why not.
