JEFF GREEN
30
MARCH 2018
Presented by Frontier Comedy

Award-winning British comedian and best-selling author Jeff Green will bring his new stand-up show 30 to Brisbane Comedy Festival in March next year. In 1988, young Chemical Engineer Jeff walked into a North London comedy room and has never looked back. 30 years and numerous awards, best-selling books, TV specials and sold out West End runs later, he’s at the height of his comedy powers. Don’t miss ‘one of the Greats’ (Herald, UK) in this special 30th anniversary performance.

Jeff has become a well known figure in Australian media since arriving here for his first performance in 1996 at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. A festival favourite both here and abroad, Jeff returned to Edinburgh Fringe by invitation in 2015 to perform a season for legendary Fringe venue The Gilded Balloon’s 30th anniversary, where he once again achieved critical acclaim at sold-out shows. Don’t miss UK comedy icon Jeff’s new show 30 at Brisbane Comedy Festival for three nights only in March 2018!

Grammy nominated, multi-platinum-selling, top touring comedian, actor & two times New York Times best-selling author Jim Gaffigan returns to Australia!

Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show, Flight of the Conchords, Portlandia, Bored to Death) is known around the world for his unique brand of humour which largely revolves around fatherhood and his observations on life. With sold out live shows at some of the biggest venues on the planet and iconic film and TV roles including his critically acclaimed sitcom The Jim Gaffigan Show, Gaffigan is one of the most familiar faces in comedy in the world today. Last in Australia in 2014 for the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival at the Sydney Opera House, this will be the first time fans in Brisbane can see Jim live.

“One of our most intelligent observational humourists…Gaffigan is profoundly gifted at seizing the audience’s attention and holding onto it, joke after joke after joke.” –  The AV Club (US)

“An assured, accomplished comic, America’s Jim Gaffigan can be relied upon to engage any audience with his smart, no-nonsense routines.” – Chortle (UK)

“An expert craftsman…Gaffigan’s true genius lies in his ability to appeal to large numbers of people from all ages and social scenes. He is the rare kind of comedian who is enjoyed by pretty much everyone.” – Comedy Couch (CA)
