CASULA COMEDY CLUB
Comedy returns to CPAC with a new monthly comedy club on the third Saturday of every month at 8pm.
They say laughter is the best medicine so join us for your monthly dose at the Casula Comedy Club!
We've teamed up with the folks at Blacklist Promotions to bring you a handpicked line up of local comedians. Not for the fainthearted, and not for the easily offended - these comedians tell it like it is, local stories from real people, with a diversity on stage that matches our community. Ranging from the best of the west with additions from the north and the east, this line-up brings you the movers, shakers and joke makers from across the city direct to Liverpool.
APRIL'S COMEDY LINE-UP
Andrew Barnett is best known as Barney to the audiences of Fox Sports where is a resident funny man on Sunday Night with Matty Johns and The Back Page. Along with James “The Professor Rochford” he co-hosted The Night Watchmen, The Professor’s Late Hit and Narrow World of Sports. He wrote and performed on The Professor’s Farewell Tour and The Professor’s Second Year Syndrome.
Andrew has been performing as a stand up since 2010 when he was an NSW Finalist in Raw Comedy. Since then he has performed sold-out shows at Comedy Clubs and Festivals across Australia and New Zealand. Andrew is a crowd favourite, whose relaxed style belies a razor-sharp wit.
Julia Wilson doesn’t see the world or live the way most of us do, she has a hell of a lot more fun. An Aussie woman like no other, Julia has headlined comedy events all over the world, thrilling audiences in Australia, Britain, South Africa, Croatia, Germany and Canada, with her own brand of filth. She is not for the faint-hearted. You have been warned.
With over a quarter-century on stage Mick Meredith is part joke teller and part guitar slinging song monster. Mick’s shows are the rapid-fire, comical commentary of stories, songs gags and guitars. Mick began his musical comedy journey at the legendary Sandringham Hotel, Newtown in the 80’s playing in a rock band before switching to comedy back in the 90’s. Mick’s ability to entertain any audience from teens up to nans and pops is something not every comic can do and surely proves what a versatile act he truly is.
Donut Mogul, chef, fashion icon and comedian, Friday Deguisi is the quintessential Australian comedian in a scarf. A self-proclaimed Wogan (part wog, part bogan) this 5ft Australian-born Lebanese Muslim makes up in the hear what she lacks in height. She’s gregarious, hilarious and driven by a comedic tenacity and ambition rarely seen in this country. And it’s the absolute passion for comedy that makes Frida such a joy to watch.
Honouring the title of Australia's only female, Islamic, hijab-wearing comic, Friday gives audiences an insight into her world with her rules. Controversial, sassy and with a brashness tempered perfectly with effortless, joyful charisma, she will have you laughing with her until your cheeks hurt.
Starting his comedy career in Brisbane, Suraj Kolarkar has performed in every major city in Australia. He won Lawrence Mooney’s comedy competition which saw him performing on a moving train for triple M listeners. After winning Raw Queensland in 2019, he was runner up at the national grand final at Melbourne town hall, televised on SBS by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
With great material and a very strong stage presence, as soon as Joe walks on stage and has said a few words, the crowd knows they’re in for a good time.
Thao’s comedy can be best described as dry, self-deprecating and occasionally inappropriate. She has had sold-out shows at the Sydney Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Winner of Short and Sweet comedy and winner of several open mic contests including Ulladulla Comedy Festival, Smith Alternative open mic Canberra and Crown Comedy Newcastle. She has made audiences local and abroad laugh out loud with her deadpan humour.
While Umit Bali is not a natural-born citizen of Australia he has found his place in the comic world, gaining love and enthusiasm from his fans all across the country. Umit auditioned for “Australia’s Got Talent” in 2019, and out of over 10,000 entrees from across Australia, and he’s also a regular on the comedy hit tv show Fat Pizza Back in Business. Umit revels in his authenticity, using his individuality as a way to charm the audience and get them engaged in his performance.
Umit grew up in the suburbs of Australia, often feeling like an outsider. He is a Fijian-Indian but has always been able to fit in with the crowd in a humorous way. He believes it is his humour that has awarded him friendships and reputation along the way, and perhaps he is right! Comedy has been the key thing to help Umit cope as he has grown and matured—and this has made him into the stand-up comedian he is today.
