*An ace up his sleeve at every turn* The Courier Mail
Steven J Whiteley began performing in Adelaide in 1996. Since then he has toured everywhere in and around Australia and overseas. Nicknamed “The Bogan Prince of Australian Comedy”, he has performed with the likes of Stephen K Amos, Ed Byrne, Adam Hills, Steady Eddy and Jimeoin, to name just a few. He now performs extensively on cruise ships around the world, but likes to tour Australia when he’s back on home soil.
He has recently released his second DVD titled “You Can’t Say That” following the success of his 2012 release “and another thing”. His natural storytelling ability makes him a crowd favourite as he recounts personal experiences and observations of everyday life.
Quite simply, he’s not to be missed.

“Hilarious…delivered everything it promised and then some” Drum Media
Dave Jory is an Australian comedian who can generally be counted on to show up at least half an hour to an hour before the gig. Then once it’s over he tends to leave pretty quickly.
With a combination of hilarious material, intense eye contact and outrageous backstage demands, Dave Jory is the perfect solution to any humour based problem
He’s worked with lots of great comics over the years, including Weird Al Yankovic, Louis CK, Arj Barker and Paulie Shore. He appeared on Wil Anderson’s debut DVD and he went with the Australian Defence Force to the Solomon Islands and Afghanistan, to entertain the troops.

After nine years on the Australian club and festival circuit, Jacques has become a bona-fide headliner, known for his ability to adapt to the crowd and throw consistently sharp, relentless comedy blows. Jacques weaves character renditions into social commentary with strong performance skills and well written material, resulting in some poignant comedy. He leaves crowds thinking and laughing long after the curtains have closed.
Jacques has spent the last 18 months honing his stagecraft on the world stage with a tour stopping off in South East Asia, South Africa, Romania, Prague, Switzerland, Croatia, Estonia, Helsinki, Sweden and 12 months on the tough UK comedy circuit.
His CV extends to a skill-set covering several other mediums: 12 months on Austereo network’s flagship station 2Day FM, a full 13 episode season as a field reporter on Channel 9?s late night hit Ralph TV, appearances on the Footy Show and One HD sports, a regular columnist for men’s magazine Zoo Weekly and a natural affinity for stage acting and VoiceOver. His focus is standup but these skills are transferable. A star still on the rise, who is not to be missed!
