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.

Booked your ticket, don't forget to GRAB A BITE to eat! 
As you feed the soul with laughter let our in-house restaurant Bellbird Dining & Bar feed your belly with a delicious Mezze Platter for only $18. When you book your ticket for the Casula Comedy Club why not book a ticket for your Mezze Plate too! Nothing funny about watching a show on an empty stomach.

Until 30 June, you can use your Service NSW Dine and Discover vouchers to get tickets.


JUNE'S COMEDY LINE-UP

MC JULIA WILSON

Having grown up on the beaches of Sydney and attending an all-girls catholic school, Julia has developed a hearty disrespect for authority of any kind and a love for everything sinful.

Julia has been a truck driver, a bouncer in what some would say are the roughest pubs in Sydney, and also holds a degree in accounting, but declares that she would rather ‘poke herself in the eye repeatedly with a fork than practice accounting”, so in keeping with the pattern of her life, the unnatural progression took her to stand up comedy.

Thankfully it did because there is no one else like her and when Julia is onstage, you want to pay attention, and you’ll have no choice. To look away or even blink means you’ll miss something because her comedy comes at you in rapid-fire. Having acted in several film and TV roles and studied for a time at the “Australian Institute of Music”, Julia is a true entertainer and brings all that experience on stage.

Her brutally honest energy has everyone in the audience wishing they could be just a little more like her. Julia doesn’t take the stage, she owns it.

CHRIS NGUYEN

Chris Nguyen is a Sydney-based, Newcastle-born comedian. In 2019, his debut show was nominated for the Sydney Fringe Award for Best Comedy and in 2020 he was a RAW State Finalist. With subversive wit and a penchant for jokes, he's available for weddings, bar mitzvahs and funerals.

ROBYN REYNOLDS

Robyn (UK) is an award-nominated comedian and writer. Handpicked for the Emerging Artist Hub at Sydney Fringe Festival, her sold-out debut was then shortlisted for Best Comedy. Recently, she's been busy as the Artist in Residence at the Old 505 Theatre with her writing partner Madeleine Stewart. Despite all this, she remains gorgeously humble.

MADELEINE STEWART

Award-winning comedian Madeleine Stewart charms audiences everywhere with a sweet demeanour, veiling razor-sharp wit. You may have seen Madeleine perform with Adam Hills, Rove McManus, or Andrew Denton. A hilarious turn on ABC Tonightly with NDIS Fails, showcased her ground-breaking exploration of disability and social norms. Practicing what she preaches, Madeleine won the AMP Tomorrowmaker award for her production of inclusive, accessible comedy shows - specifically Crips & Creeps. With shows at the Sydney Fringe, Sydney Comedy Festival and Melbourne Comedy Festival, Madeleine is rising fast, with no sign of slowing down.

DANE HISER

Fundraiser by day, fun-raiser by night! Dane is far more confident on stage than he has any right to be. “All over the place” is an apt description of both where he’s performed comedy and of his life. He’s gigged with comedy icons like The Doug Anthony Allstars and Tony Martin. Dane’s featured in Matt Okine’s hit Stan TV series ‘The Other Guy’ as well as in ads for various brands and products he refuses to promote in this bio unless they give him more cash.

MICHAEL VINCENT

He’s the up and comer of The Blacklist, hailing from Wagga Wagga in the Riverina of NSW.

Michael has been doing stand up for a few years now and his comedy is a mixed bag of personal experiences as a Dad, Husband and Indigenous Australian as well as an observational yarn. He first graced the stage at the Deadly Funny (A National Indigenous Comedy Competition) called in 2009 after spending a few years working on this craft, he came back bigger and better and became a Deadly Funny National Finalist in 2017.

He frequents the stage at the Riverina Comedy Club and recently performed alongside Sean Choolburra during “Blackout Comedy Show” in 2017.To add to Michael’s list of achievements, in 2018 he became ACT Raw Comedy Finalist and has performed in Melbourne, Sydney, Dubbo, Caberra and anywhere you care to put a mic and spotlight. With 60,000 years of storytelling in his blood, Michael works insanely hard for his community, but it’s okay, you don’t have to be black to laugh.

DAVID SMIEDT

David is definitely a prolific comedian on the Australian comedy scene and according to Adam Hills, the host of “Spicks and Specks,” he is the total package for a living breathing joke machine.  This guy provides delightful, uplifting, engaging comedy and is clearly one of the most startling MC’s and corporate entertainers across Australia.  He is a regular on several television shows and is a well-known author of 7 entertaining and humorous books.  He also writes quite often for a number of magazines and websites.

David puts a humorous spin on style health issues, to try to lighten up the seriousness of them while reaching his audience in a more light-hearted manner.  He is, in fact, the current contributing editor of GQ magazine, so he stays on top of the most current issues and uses these often in his live performances.  He is also the only known Australian journalist who appears in concurrent issues of the magazine Ralph and Your Garden.  David’s entire goal, in all of his endeavours, is to charm and educate in a more comedic type of way.  After all, if you can’t laugh, what can you do?
