Event description


Comedy festival season is approaching and guess who needs to work on their shows? These two buffoons! Come and watch two legends of the game split an hour previewing new material ahead of their upcoming national festival runs.

Best part? It's free!! What a way to spend a Monday night! Make sure to reserve a free ticket because capacity is limited and these shows are sure to fill up.

Monday 11th and 18th of December. Upstairs (seriously keep walking up) at The Newtown Hotel. 6:15pm start.

Cameron James:

Cameron James has been touring the country all year.

Cam is one of the country's most exciting young comedians. You may have seen him being funny as the face of Comedy Central's popular Share This webseries, or you may have heard him being funny as the co-host of the Guardian's Top Podcast of the Year listed podcasts Mike Check and The Blank Slate, but onstage is where he comes alive.

Described as a ‘natural on stage’ with ‘perfect comic timing’ by Chortle, Cam has taken his sharp wit and mischievous stories on tour opening for the likes of Ari Shaffir (USA), Tony Hinchcliffe (USA), Tom Green (Can) and performing on stages from Melbourne International Comedy Festival to Splendour In The Grass.

***** (5 stars) ‘A warm and easy going comic, with carefully crafted stories and the manner of a seasoned professional’ – The Music

‘The most obvious Next Big Thing’ – Time Out Sydney

Sam Taunton:

Nominated ‘Best Newcomer’ - Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017

Nominated ‘Best Comedy’ - Perth Fringeworld 2017

Sam Taunton is one of the most exciting new voices in Australian comedy.

Bursting onto the scene in the 2015 Triple J RAW Comedy National Final, he received the judges' 'Special Mention’ award and has since gone on to play venues all over the world.

Juggling stand up and various media projects including being MTV Australia’s newest VJ, his captive storytelling and quickfire punchlines have seen him emerge as one of the most in-demand acts in the country.

Still a fresh face in the comedy world, he was handpicked for the prestigious ‘Comedy Zone’, toured with MICF Roadshow throughout Australia and Asia, and this year was nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

His debut show ‘Taunts Down For What’ was handpicked and filmed for ABC’s Next Gen series, airing early 2018.

As seen and heard on ABC2’s Comedy Up Late, SBS, MTV, Channel [V], ABC Radio, NOVA and Triple J.
