Kent Valentine tells stories that are full of jokes and he’s very good at it.

In 2010 Kent picked up awards for Best Comedy & International Performer at the Hollywood Fringe Festival & his most recent solo show, Fablemonger, was nominated for a Critics Award by Australian Comedy Review at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.


Sam picked up the guitar at 11 and started making music in his early teens using an old 4-track and whatever instruments and objects he could find. He has written and recorded music for short films and documentaries including the Vince Ray inspired ‘Jack the Ripper’ (2005) and ‘This Big Hush’ (2010). He currently plays guitar with Nemhain and This is Radio Silence and continues to produce and perform improvised sets on his own as Ewss.


An accomplished comic in both Australia and the UK, Julia is a finalist in the 2010 UK-wide Funny Women competition.

She featured in the Melbourne Comedy Festival’s new talent showcase, The Comedy Zone, in 2009 and has supported Jeff Green, Eddie Brimson, Wil Anderson & Greg Fleet at venues such as the Sydney Comedy Store.


Charlie Pyne studied jazz double bass at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Since escaping in 2009, she has been performing with her own cabaret act, Strawberry and Cream, and has played at the Brighton Comedy Fringe in front of sharks, as well as several variety nights around London. When she’s not singing swing covers of 80s pop, Charlie splits her time between playing the bass for various salsa, jazz and pop bands and teaching music to teenagers.
