AMERICAN EXPRESS TWILIGHT AT TARONGA PRESENTS
Comedy Gala | The Umbilical Brothers, Dave Hughes, Cal Wilson and Nick Cody
The Umbilical Brothers
The Umbilical Brothers are an international comedy phenomenon, fusing amazing vocal and physical abilities with a mix of theatre, slapstick and stand-up inside a world where all their rules are broken. They've been on Letterman, The Tonight Show and Colbert, they've won BAFTA's, Emmy's and Logies and they've toured 38 countries around the world. Experience them live and wonder how anyone can do this for a living.
"Wildly Creative, Wildly Funny" - The New York Times
"Absolutely Hilarious. A hell of a good time!" - Time Out
Natural and unmistakably Australian, Hughsey's iconic style thinly disguises one of this country's fastest comedic minds. Turning everyday foibles into rich and hilarious routines has made Hughesy the biggest name in Australian comedy.
"Dave Hughes is a comedy institution in this town. And it's easy to see why."
- Herald Sun 4.5 stars
Cal Wilson is one of Australia's most popular comedians, and is a perennial favourite on television shows such as Spicks and Specks, Good News Week Thank God You're Here, and more recently Have You Been Paying Attention? and Hughesy We Have a Problem. Her stand up shows are as engaging as they are hilarious, often bringing the audience's stories to life alongside her own.
"masterful...her audience dissolved in helpless puddles formed from their tears of mirth"
Edinburgh Evening News
Nick Cody's style of easy going comedy sees him consistently selling out shows and over-achieving his way around the globe, all the while becoming a regular fixture on TV and radio at home in Australia.
"Masterful hour of stand up...its effortlessness is what inspires the awe...It's fantastic stuff"
- Herald Sun
