Dave O’Neil may call himself a lightweight, but with over 30 years of experience, his cheeky brand of humour has made him one of Australia’s most loved comedians. With years of breakfast radio on Nova, frequent appearances on Spicks and Specks, a bunch of podcasts (including Somehow Related with Glenn Robbins and The Junkees with Kitty Flanagan) and a reputation for taking any corporate gig he is offered, it takes a lot to throw this comedian off his game!
“An atmosphere some comedians would kill to be able to generate, sitting in Dave O’Neil’s audience is genuinely to feel like you’ve stumbled into a relaxed conversation among friends… there’s an engaging affability… unprepossessingly good-spirited fun.” –Chortle
“One of our most accomplished stand-ups.” – The Age
“Put simply, Dave O’Neil is a heavyweight comedian of the highest order.” – ★★★★ Theatre Matters
“He’s fat, he’s funny, he’s just here for the Haigh’s chocolate. A joyful way to spend an hour.” – ★★★★★ Time Out

Lehmo has also become Australia’s number one ‘combat comic’, having completed seven ‘tours of duty’ performing for our troops abroad.
Lehmo can be heard on ABC Radio’s Grandstand on weekends and on the Triple M network across the week. Up until December 2017, Lehmo hosted the number 1 FM breakfast show in Melbourne on Gold 104.3 with Jo Stanley.

With five solo shows under her belt, Quinn has recorded four albums and made memorable guest appearances on Adam Hills Tonight, RocKwiz, Spicks & Specks, The Comedy Channel, and Upper Middle Bogan.
After two years as MC of Circus Oz’s hit ‘NEON’, Quinn made a triumphant return to cabaret, in a career which has earned her 4-5 star reviews in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. From an artist with more than 35 award nominations and wins, ‘Broad’ was a spectacular come-back. Quinn ended her 2022 Melbourne Comedy Festival run with sold out crowds, extra shows and nominations for both Most Outstanding Show and Best Local Independant Production, making it the most award-nominated show of the entire festival.
