Digital Season | Streamed from the Joan Sutherland Theatre

Time: Sunday, 6th September, 8pm AEST
Genre: Comedy

On Demand from: 6th September
Remind me: Save to calendar

Get ready for an evening of world renowned comedy with Australian comedian and actor Gary Eck and American stand up star Tommy Dean. Joining us on the digital stage for the third round of our comedy series Humour Us, these two powerhouses will join forces for the ultimate double header.

Gary is one of Australia’s most sought after comedians performing around the world in every major comedy festival. He began his foray into comedy as a writer for 2DayFM’s Morning Crew, graduating to host his own nightly programme - The Late Show with Gary Eck. Gary has notably been nominated for an Aria for his comedy album, The Hollywood Motel. Today, Gary can be heard regularly on Richard Glover’s Thank God Its Friday on ABC 702 and is also an accomplished writer, actor and film director (Happy Feet Two, The Money). 

Arizonian raised and now Sydney local, Tommy Dean’s pin-sharp banter, genial manner, and vast stock of hilarious routines have made him a crowd favourite worldwide. Cleverly interweaving the foibles of his adopted Australia with the dark reality of his home country, Tommy never fails to connect and deliver. His impressive CV includes appearances on Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Stand Up Australia, Rove Live, Joker Poker, Sunrise, The Today Show, The Side Show. QandA, Gruen Planet, Gruen Transfer and even the Prime Minister’s Australian of the Year awards ceremony.

Set your reminder and tune in as these crowd-pleasing comedians are all set to humour us.
