Demi Lardner started out at just 15 and has been an unstoppable force on the live comedy scene ever since. Self described as a 'Horrid Little Troll In Boy-Skin', her unpredictable and high-energy live performances along with numerous podcast collaborations has seen this Australian based comic spend the past few years blazing around Australia and beyond sharing hilarious, surreal, and at times just straight up awkward comedy. Demi has picked up a solid and healthy slew of fans along the way, not to mention a seriously impressive swag of awards. In 2013 Demi became the national winner of Australia's RAW Comedy which earned her a place in Edinburgh's 'So You Think You're Funny?' competition and, by no surprise took out joint first place. The same year Demi won the Adelaide Comedy's Rising Starr Award for Best Newcomer and as co-writer and director of Wolf Creek, The Musical, also took home the Best Emerging Comedy Award Adelaide Fringe 2013. Making waves across the country Demi was invited to perform at the 2014 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and debuted her first solo show at the 2015 Adelaide Fringe entitled 'Birds with Human Lips'. In 2016 she claimed the Sydney Comedy Festival's Best Newcomer award, and in 2017 took home the Directors Choice award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, as well as the Underbelly Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - proof that her show 'Look What You Made Me Do' an outlandish and eccentric collaboration (featuring Aunty Donna's Mark Bonanno as director and co-writer) clearly had made it's mark. Demi was most recently awarded the PINDER prize at the 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival for her latest physically relentless and quirky gut-buster 'I Love Skeleton'. Ms. Lardner will also be keeping the laughs coming via her most recent podcast endeavour: bigsofttitty.png (In her words: we are with sanspants radio and we are very good).
Writer/Comedian Gerard McGowan was twice Raw Comedy State finalist (2013,2015), hand picked for the Sydney and Brisbane Comedy Festival Breakout showcases (2016). And has been featured on FBI, 2Day FM and Triple J Radio stations as well as appearing on ABC's the Checkout and most recently had a major part in Comedy Central's Nippers (2018).

"His jokes came thick and fast his set was fun, lighthearted naughty and subversive" - Weekend Notes.
"His deadpan dryness - it pulls you in and doesn't let go. He is somewhat of a master of the self-piss-take" - The Music
