Cameron James

Cameron James is an award-winning stand-up comedian and creative force across stages, screens and podcasts.

Cameron has won countless rave reviews for his unique and warm comedy style that blends hilariously honest storytelling, music, improv and an open-hearted embrace of the chaotic. In 2022, he toured his highly acclaimed show Electric Dreams to sold out solo performances around the country, from Melbourne’s Max Watts to Sydney’s Factory Theatre and Newcastle’s Town Hall.

Since beginning his comedy career as a Raw Comedy National Runner Up in 2012, he has gone on to win an AWGIE Award for Best Comedy Writing, an APA Award for Best Entertainment Podcast, the Director’s Choice Award at Sydney Comedy Festival as well as being nominated for the highly coveted Most Outstanding Show Award at Melbourne Int. Comedy Festival in 2022.

Offstage, Cameron has most recently acted as primary cast member and writer on ABC’s WTFAQ, At Home Alone Together (ABC), a guest actor on Bump (Stan), a recurring panelist on Question Everything (ABC), as a performer and head comedy writer on The Feed (SBS) and performing in his own comedy special on ABC’s Comedy Next Gen in 2018. He’s also popped up here and there on Utopia (ABC) as an annoying guy, and Orange Is The New Brown (Seven) as another annoying guy.

Over the past few years, he has become a sought out comedy writer, serving multiple seasons on Gruen (ABC), Win The Week (ABC), Channel Seven’s “Roasts” as well as The Feed where he won multiple AWG awards.

Cameron has found most of his success on something called “the Internet”, with his hit YouTube/Screen Australia series Finding Yeezus and the podcasts Finding Drago and Finding Desperado amassing an audience of over 1.5 million around the globe. A comedy spin on the true crime genre, these shows have been described by The Australian as “tremendously bonkers” and by The AV Club as “brilliantly silly”.
In 2024, Cameron will release his debut single, Boys Night, produced by ARIA-nominated Joyride, and released through Ben Lee’s record label, Weirder Together. He will also tour his new show, Mixtape, throughout Australia.

Fakkah fuzz

Fakkah Fuzz

As Fakkah Fuzz navigates the crossroads of his Singaporean/Malaysian roots and his experiences in the global comedy scene, you’re in for a treat that’s as insightful as it is hilarious.

It’s a blend of Singapore’s pulsing energy with international comedic nuances, all delivered with Fuzz’s unmatched charisma. 

In the past six years the bald and bearded man of comedy has been delivering heavyweight punch lines all across the globe. In 2017, he was the only Singaporean comedian to have his own Netflix special Almost Banned, garnering buzz from many critics. He placed top five in both Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person in the World competition in Los Angeles in 2016, as well as the Laugh Festival in Hong Kong in 2019. 

Fuzz headlined last year’s Best of Comedy Zone Asia showcase at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, prompting Beat Magazine to admire his ‘risque commentary and goofy mannerism’. 

Meg jäger

Meg Jäger

After entering the comedy scene three years ago, Meg Jäger has since won the hearts of the east coast with her acerbic witticisms proving she’s more than just a pair of killer choozzies.

Earning the runner-up title in the RAW Comedy National Grand Final in 2023, to being cast in 2024 Comedy Zone, Meg is quickly cementing herself as a cutie pie in Australian comedy.

Brett blake copy

Brett Blake

Brett Blake – The man, the mullet, the legend. A whip-smart, high-spirited stand up who has performed widely across Australia.

His unpretentious look belies a vulnerability and willingness to explore complex issues on stage.

His material runs the gamut of living with dyslexia to truck licenses, and he is the only comic who physically built some of venues he has performed in.

Brett’s audiences have been growing as much as his second-hand motorbike collection – exponentially. It is par the course for him to sell out entire seasons at comedy festivals and venues around the country.

Brett has starred on Common Sense for Network 10, is a regular guest on countless Australian radio networks, has a hand in running Melbourne’s Comedy at Coopers Inn, is a regular visitor to The Little Dum Dum Club. He also co-hosts the bonkers double-dare fiesta that is Flat Stick with Nick Capper.

Most recently, you can see him in his undies in new Bonds campaign with Dustin Martin or stealing scenes in the new Jamie Dornan thriller for Stan/Two Brothers, The Tourist.

Brett’s one hour comedy special Bogan Genius was released last year and is available now on Paramount +.

Still, the mullet runs deep.

“Punchy and relevant insight… peppered with clever jabs at Australian culture.” – The Age.
