#Meet the lineup

Host - Nikki Britton

Host - Nikki Britton

Nikki is often described as a “force of nature”, but think less natural disaster, and more joy bomb. Her warmth draws her audience close, and her sharp wit doesn’t let them catch their breath. Her physicality takes her storytelling to another level, with characters flying in and out of the tales spun from her own chaotic life.

Alex Ward

Alex Ward

Alex is the funniest she’s ever been, mostly because she has nothing to apologise for. With personal, engaging and punch-line heavy comedy, Alex is truly on top of her game. As a Queenslander living in Melbourne, Alex is always cold, which makes the warmth she brings to the stage & screen all the more impressive.

Damien Power

Damien Power

We were laughing from the moment the lights went down, to well into the drive home.
