DILRUK JAYASINHA

Hailing from Sri Lanka, Dil relocated to Melbourne to attend university. Having completed a degree in accounting, he started working for one of the "Big Four." However, after performing at an open mic night in 2010, that all changed... 

In a bittersweet turn of events, Dil was unceremoniously fired from his accounting job at the same time his comedy career was taking shape. Just as Dil had, it turns out his managers had noticed that his heart lay elsewhere. 

Dil is now a regular on the comedy scene around Melbourne and with a reputation for consistently nailing his shows, Dil has been invited to perform all over the country as well as internationally. In 2016 he returned for his sixth Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his smash-hit show; Sri Wanka, made his Australian television debut on smash hit prime time show Have You Been Paying Attention?, recorded his first hour long stand up show for the ABC and appeared at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs festival.

Steve Hofstetter USA

Author, columnist, and comedian Steve Hofstetter is often called the hardest working man in show-business. With all due respect to the late James Brown.

Hofstetters national TV debut came on ESPNs Quite Frankly, where Stephen A. Smith yelled at him for three minutes. Hofstetter has also appeared on CBS "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson", Showtimes "White Boyz in the Hood", VH1s "Countdown", Sundances "On the Road in America", and ABCs "Barbara Walters Special", where he thankfully did not cry. He is the host and executive producer of "Laughs" on Fox networks, where he only cries occasionally.

 

One of the top booked acts on the college circuit, the original writer for collegehumor.com has also released six albums. Hofstetter has written humor columns for the New York Times, SportsIllustrated.com, and NHL.com, where he publicly admitted to being a Ranger fan.

DJ Douggpound

Irreverent, quirky kook DJ Douggpound was last out here when he toured with Tim & Eric. Now the joke DJ & re-mixer is coming back  to Australia! 

The comedian, editor, writer and musician DJ Douggpound’s work has frequently featured on The Eric Andre Show and Portlandia, as well as his own brilliant, hugely popular cult web-series Poundhouse -  and many would argue that much of Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job!’s success has been helped by Douggpound’s frenetic, break-neck editing and musical genius.

 

Doug co-wrote Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie and has toured the world multiple times with Tim & Eric and Dr. Brule (John C. Reilly). Despite his frequent collaborations with the professional weirdos, Tim & Eric aren’t the only heavy-hitting comedians that count themselves amongst Douggpound’s fans, with Tenacious D hand-picking Dougg for the past two years to play their epic annual festival of music and comedy, Festival Supreme- where he’s joined a bevy of big names including Flight of the Conchords, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Andrew W.K, Sarah Silverman, Eric Andre, Tim Heidecker and Patton Oswalt on the monster line-ups.

JEFF GREEN

Award-winning British comedian Jeff Green has become a well known face and voice on Australian TV and radio since arriving for his first Melbourne International Comedy Festival performance here in 1996. Amongst his many Australian TV credits are Spicks and Specks (ABC), Good News Week (Ten) as well as numerous appearances on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala (Ten). More recently two of his stand-up specials Jeff Green – Up West and Back From The Bewilderness were shown on consecutive prime time Saturday night ABC 1.

Now an Australian resident (he has an Australian wife, some have accused him of social climbing but he disputes that), Jeff is hugely in demand in the UK, Europe and Asia – his stand-up comedy background is impressive: A solo West-End season and three full length UK TV comedy specials.

Jeff has performed for scores of corporate clients including a large spectrum of European and Australian Industry: Virgin, Bluescope Steel, BMW, British Gas, Scottish Publican’s Association, BOSS Industry Awards, Northern Housing Awards, Education Resources, Airwave Star Awards, Affinity Media, Channel Four Television and Deloitte.

“Jeff performed tremendously as the MC at one of our recent events. He understood the corporate objective and was able to deliver the message with comedic wit. Jeff was such a pleasure to work with that we would jump at the opportunity to book him again and would strongly recommend him to other clients.”  Senior Event Manager, The Event Emporium

A best selling author with his books selling over 300,000 copies. Jeff is well known on UK radio and TV; his BBC Radio 2 comedy series The Green Guide To Life attracted audience averages of over 3 million radio listeners. His recent UK TV appearances include Celebrity Masterchef (twice), Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow (both BBC1) and as team captain on Bill Bailey’s Birdwatching Bonanza (Sky 1).  In 2013, he released a new DVD titled Jeff Green Live! which was recorded at Hobart’s Theatre Royal.

In 2015 Jeff returned to Edinburgh Fringe by invitation to perform a season for legendary Fringe venue The Gilded Balloon’s 30th anniversary, where he once again achieved critical acclaim and sold-out shows.

Kevin Tate (USA)

When you watch Detroit native Kevin Tate perform, it is clear that his hardworking Midwestern roots influence this former class clown’s comedy.  Once the former college basketball player turned coach and English teacher got bitten by the comedy bug, he realized he needed to spread his wings and headed for Hollywood. 

Armed with a hilarious take on what it is like being the jealous boyfriend in the social media age, Kevin has quickly become one of the most popular comics in Hollywood.  From hosting every week at the world famous Laugh Factory to being featured on many festivals such as the Bay Area Black Comedy Competition And Festival.  Kevin was a finalist for Shaquille O’Neal’s Next Comedy All Star, performed on Aspire TV’s We Got Next and BET’s Comic View. Recently Russell Simmons invited Kevin to be a featured performer on All Def Comedy Jam, an updated version of Def Comedy Jam, originally aired on HBO in the 90’s and hosted by Martin Lawrence.
