Australian born, New York based, former Banking and Finance Lawyer, James was first introduced to US comedy audiences when he was invited to perform at the prestigious Montreal ‘Just For Laughs’ Festival. Since then, he has appeared on numerous TV shows on Comedy Central, ABC, TBS and HBO’s Flight Of The Conchords, to name a few. He has an upcoming appearance on Conan later this year. James has been featured in Time Magazine and recently gave a TED talk. He has also had the pleasure of performing at the New York Comedy Festival and the legendary Radio City Music Hall. When at home in NY, he performs nightly at the world famous Comedy Cellar, where he shares the stage with such greats as Chris Rock, Louis CK, and Jerry Seinfeld.
Sardonic, unique, and downright weird – Gen Fricker has quickly become one of the brightest young stars on the national comedy circuit, with her unique blend of sassy stand up and dark musical experimentation, delivered with a butter-wouldn’t-melt-in-her-mouth smile.
Since making her comedy debut in 2011, as a national finalist in the Triple J Raw Comedy competition, Fricker has sold out seasons shows at the Melbourne, Perth and Sydney Comedy Festivals, as well as appearing at the Just For Laughs comedy festival. In 2014, Fricker opened nationally for US comic Reggie Watts on his 2014 Hello Humans tour.
"Gen carries the promise of a new era in which sustainability and laughter are the prime motivation of the human race." - Reggie Watts
A Barry-nominated stand up who can kill in any club in the world; a creator of gentle, intricately crafted stage fables; a composer with a filmic range and intensity.
All this with a bulging trophy shelf and a press folder that would make most of us blush... no one can tell where this goes next.
"Equal parts brilliant and bizarre, Michael is one of the most original voices on the scene in years. If Nick Cave did stand-up it would look like this." - Wil Anderson
