Dave, who himself has also appeared at major comedy festivals around the world including Edinburgh Fringe and Just For Laughs Montréal, will lead the pack of Australian and international comics including Aussie stand-up and radio star Tom Ballard (Triple J, Tom & Alex Breakfast), mischievously crafty Claire Hooper (Good News Week), red hot rising star Ronny Chieng (Edinburgh Fringe, JFL Montreal), award winning and ever cheeky Matt Okine (Soho Theatre London, Sydney Comedy Festival), Canadian favourite and Single Awkward Female Debra DiGiovanni, Top Kiwi comedian Urzila Carlson (Melbourne International Comedy Festival), The Acid Tongued Prince Joel Creasey, and the funny purple felty guy, better known as Randy to name just a few.

Truly the best money ever spent for a night out of sidesplitting laughter!

Just For Laughs: The Stand Up Series includes four shows to be filmed over two nights of the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and will be aired on The Comedy Channel on Foxtel later in the year.
