With his youthful exuberance, charming storytelling and wickedly sharp turn-of-phrase, Tommy Dassalo has fast found himself amongst Australia’s most sought after young stand-up comedians and television writers and podcasters.
He has appeared on ABC’s ‘The Librarians’, ‘Sleuth 101’ and ‘Dirty Laundry Live’ and has written for top-rating and award-winning television shows, including ‘Talkin’ Bout Your Generation’, ‘Spicks and Specks’, ‘The Project’, ‘You’re Skitting Me’ and ‘This Week Live.’
He also hosts a weekly podcast ‘The Little Dum Dum Club’ with fellow comedian Karl Chandler – one of Australia’s most popular comedy podcasts. Each week, they chat with a different guest from the cream of Australia’s comedy crop. Past guests include Tim & Eric, Shaun Micallef, Yumi Stynes and Marc Maron. The show regularly cracks the iTunes top 10, and has amassed a loyal following of listeners both in Australia and overseas.
Emma Zammit was forced to begin a standup comedy career after her sister decided it was time to move her MC Hammer moves and one liners out of the lounge room and enrolled her in a stand up comedy writing course for the sake of family harmony.
After graduation, she was inspired to work the hard yards and tighten her comedy antics on Sydney’s open mic stages.
Emma has won the prestigious “Quest for the Best” new comedy talent search, made it to the state finals “Raw Comedy” and was selected to the MICF’s “Roadshow” and “Comedy Zone”.
