Comedy Showcase: This top secret lineup promises to feature 5 of Australia’s finest comics. No up and comers – these guys are 100% endorsed!
It’s a power hour of 5 very different comedic styles.


7:30pm – 8:30pm
Bev Killick: Bev Killick is from the bold and brassy school of stand up, delivering a non-stop energetic set every time. As soon as she blast’s her way on stage, you know you’re in for a treat.

9:00pm – 10:00pm
Ivan Aristeguieta: Too Easy. Now that Ivan is a true-blue Aussie, nothing bothers him anymore. Nada. Google finds him everything. Siri tells him where to go. Even ChatGPT is writing this blurb. Too easy!

Saturday, June 1
Great Northern Hotel

5:00pm – 6:00pm
Best of British: Dan Willis, Gillian Cordiner, Bob Franklin, Matt O’Neill. The Best of British has sold out every year at the Byron Comedy Fest. Get in quickly, these tickets go fast!

6:30pm – 7:30pm
Scout Boxall: God’s Favourite. Can a life defined by a diagnosis still hold room for the divine? In a stunning theatrical follow up to their award-winning show Buck Wild, Scout Boxall grapples with the challenges of bipolar, counts their many blessings and tries to reclaim a relationship with God.

8:00pm – 9:00pm
Dilruk Jayasinha: Pre Loved. After a year of heartache (and a heart attack), Dilruk has been trying to put himself back together again – without the help of all the King’s horses and all the King’s men. Who quite frankly, were useless. Especially the horses.

9:15pm – 10:15pm
John Crukshank: I’m working on the absolute best hour of stand-up that I can to release as a new special which will follow my last underground hit and critically acclaimed special Weed C#nt.

The show will feature plenty of material from my past two shows plus about 20 minutes of brand-new material and I think that it is really good.

Come along you dog.

Strictly for audiences 15+. This show contains: Drug references, Strong coarse language.
