After a white-bred, middle class upbringing, Chris turned out an arty-trendy sort of try hard, and a magnet for dominant women. A product of his environment, Chris lives a life of weird repetitions with no time for rational thought.
His sharp-witted and daringly clever act has seen him steadily climb the comic ladder. In 1998 he won the title of The Comedian of the Year at the famous Harold Park Hotel in Sydney, past winners include the Umbilical Brothers, Flacco, Carl Barron and Kenny Graham. Chris was also successful in taking out the Grand Final for the 1999 Triple J Raw Comedy Competition, in Melbourne, which earned him a trip to Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
Chris’ clever, provocative and original style of comedy is guaranteed to crack them up where ever he goes.
“…has audiences begging for mercy”
“Excellent, must see!”
“Chris has more character than a Disney movie”

Dain Hedgpeth’s cheeky antagonism is energizing, exciting and improves libido. Ever since placing as a state finalist in Triple J’s nationwide Raw Comedy Competition, Dain has thrust onto (and sometimes, off of) stages around Australia, as well as Europe and the US for the last six years.
He has supported the likes of Steve Hughes, Kitty Flanagan and Eddie Ifft. Dain is a charming new comic on the rise.
“Deeply and profoundly funny”
“Dain is an excellent and hillarious comic, labouring under the misapprehension that a quote from me means anything”
