Justin Hamilton

Justin Hamilton has carved his own path to success as a comic while maintaining his unique voice within the Australian Comedy scene. From his humble beginnings in Adelaide, to a household name from Triple M breakfast with Charlie Pickering and a popular reoccurring role as ‘Biscuit’ on the ABC, Justin can’t stand still.

He has written and performed on nearly every Australian comedy show, from Spicks ‘n Specks and Rove Live and written and performed over 16 solo festival shows where most comics average about 3 in a career. Not content with only writing stand-up and television, Justin also wrote a play “Goodbye Ruby Tuesday” in 2009 which was liked by both serious theatre critics, The Australian Theatre Review, and UK comedy review site Chortle (as well as some random internet bloggers).

Justin is quick witted, fun, intelligent and above all, a comedy Juggernaut.

Dave Jory became a cult favourite on Triple J with a fake celebrity gossip segment (2006-2007) and then the brilliant segment called ‘I Love This Crowd’, where he performed listener’s jokes in a stand up club and played the recordings on-air.

In 2007, Dave was a finalist in Rove Live’s ‘Golden Nut Competition’, as well as being chosen as an Australian finalist for the popular NBC America program, ‘Last Comic Standing’. He has since appeared on television shows such as ‘The NRL Footy Show’, ‘Stand Up Australia’, ‘Joker Poker’, ‘Last Comic Standing’ and ‘The Mansion’ amongst others.

Dave is the author of the book, ‘I Know Everything’, which Hustler Magazine described as, ‘has the edge over Woody Allen’. He has also been a contributing writer for various magazines and TV shows, such as ‘The Glasshouse’ and ‘Stand Up Australia’.

Dave has worked with lots of great comics over the years, including being the opening act for Weird Al Yankovic, Arj Barker and Paulie Shore for their respective shows at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney.

He was voted one of Zoo Magazine’s ’10 Funniest Australian Comedians’, and is also an accomplished actor and writer. Dave’s stand-up act is relatable, light on profanity, and most of all, hilarious!
