With so many TV appearances over the years it would be hard to find a person who hasn't seen him perform. Good, clean, fast & very funny.



The biggest name in Australian Comedy for almost three decades, over the last thirty years Austen Tayshus has made hit records, performed thousands of stand up shows in venues all over the world, won best actor and best film in Tropfest (1998) appeared in feature films and shorts and written TV shows and feature films.
Austen Tayshus has developed a style of stand-up which is highly provocative, politically incorrect, innovative, improvisational and unsettling.  He polarises every audience, even those who don’t get it feel compelled to stay to the end.  He regards the stand-up genre as limited only to the imagination of its practitioner. In other words limitless.  Scary.



Enter the world of the snobbish, manic Basil; his domineering wife Sybil; and the hopeless language-challenged waiter Manuel.  Be one of the steady stream of bemused guests trying to make Manuel understand what it is you want.  Innocently ask for an ‘ice bucket’ and you’ll probably end up with a ‘nice bucket’; a simple procedure like opening a bottle of wine can become a huge drama; and maybe, just maybe, in the middle of all these events, you might get some service – Faulty style of course.  Everything that can go wrong will - in fact this can best be described as organised chaos!! 
‘Faulty Towers the Dining Experience’ debuted in Brisbane on April 24 1997. Since then, thousands of people have enjoyed the fun! abuse!! and service!! of Basil, Sybil and Manuel in public shows, private conference dinners and functions throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia. The team recently performed a sell out 4 week season at the Melbourne Comedy Festival to celebrate their 10th anniversary.



Richard Stubbs - is most well known as Australia's finest stand-up comedian. 
His rare experience of hosting 120 'Tonight Live' shows on Friday evenings nationally on Channel 7 and various other variety shows, has provided Richard with quick thinking and entertaining problem solving techniques.  He has the ability to pull an event back into line successfully where most hosts fail.  Richard’s strong sense of understanding the business world has enhanced his ability to perform at a corporate level second to none.  A combination of Richard's brilliant comedic skills blended with his intelligence and knowledge in various fields including economics, law, finance and his awareness in the realms of office procedure and etiquette allows him to contribute as MC, guest speaker or comedian at a function in a completely appropriate manner.
You can hear Richard weekdays 1.00pm to 3.00pm on 774 ABC local radio.

At the age of just 17 Josh Thomas was the youngest ever winner of the Melbourne International Comedy. Festival’s RAW Comedy Competition in 2005. He also made the finals of So You Think You’re Funny, Edinburgh’s equivalent to RAW Comedy. He thought he was the King of the world. His next gig was in a scary you-might-actually-die-when-they-stab-you style Tavern in front of 12 comics and a man sitting at the bar crying into his beer.

After only a few short years of performing stand up Josh’s unique talent has the Australian Comedy Industry abuzz. His virginal looks and cutting dialect combine to create a voice that is genuinely distinct and exciting. For a performer so young to have such an honest and developed sense of who he is on stage is quite remarkable. 2007 has been a cracker year for Josh, picking up the gong for Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for his first ever solo show, Please Like Me. This was followed by 6 weeks touring with the Comedy Festival Roadshow and an invitation to perform at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal in July.

In the last twelve months Josh has performed on the Comedy Channel’s Stand Up! Australia and supported the likes of Dave Hughes in front of a crowd of 1500. He has been heard on the ABC’s Triple J Breakfast Show, Brisbane’s 612 ABC, Triple M Brisbane and has presented the “Triple Z Comedy Show” on Saturdays.

A star of stage, screen and television, Peter Rowsthorn is one of Australia's most talented performers and comedians.
He is a high energy, fast paced stand up comedian one minute and a measured character actor the next. A masterful MC of corporate and private functions, Peter has been performing his slick & blistering stand up for almost two decades. He can be heard on The Whole Shebang twice a week and every Thursday on The Cage, both on Triple M, but Peter is probably best known as Brett on ABC TV's Kath & Kim.
