“He’s even funnier than he is insane.” – Tame Impala (the band, not the animal...)
Born in the UK but raised down under, Rory Lowe is one of the youngest comedians on the international headliner circuit. Armed with dreadlocks and a well-honed comedy mind, Rory tears down milestone after milestone with such precision and effortless delivery, you’d never see it coming.
Beginning his foray into stand-up comedy at the tender age of 19, it took Rory two years to debut his first solo show I’ve Got Problems at the Perth Fringe World, which proceeded to sell out across Western Australia.
Rory went on to sell out every single one of his Melbourne Comedy Festival runs, as well as his tour of the West Coast of the US supporting the debaucherous bear Bert Kreischer. Arguably Rory’s biggest gig so far was MCing at the Big Day Out Festival, blowing the minds not only of audiences but also of Grammy-nominated psych-rockers Tame Impala.
His material is described as honest and his delivery laid-back in an Aussie sense. Rory Lowe is a powerhouse performer that’s as unpredictable as he is funny, leaving audiences gasping for air as he packs the next punch.
“A revelation.” – ArtsHub Australia
Hannan Azlan delved into the world of stand-up comedy in 2015 and has been fooling around with a ukulele on stage ever since. In 2016, she became the first and youngest ever woman to win the world-renowned Hong Kong International Comedy Competition.
Likable on stage and off, Hannan has gone on to gig everywhere from Australia to the UK, from Estonia to Cambodia. Having been described as both “a musical genius” and “gross”, Kuala Lumpur’s naughtiest comic treads the fine line between rowdy material and witty crowd work, leaving audiences rolling on the floor.
In 2018, Hannan was the first Malaysian woman to be chosen for the prestigious Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Comedy Zone Asia, and made her Australian television debut on ABC’s Comedy Up Late.
Her theatre training and musical prowess soften the blow of the controversial topics she covers, from white privilege to the Islamic State.
