Heralded as a “post-modern Barry Humphries” by The Australian, Asher Treleaven is one of the most unique comedians in Australia with his bizarre blend of physical comedy, stand up and socio-political satire. After graduating from the National Institute of Circus Arts, Asher has performed at comedy festivals all over Australia including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
In 2009 with the assistance of a Moosehead Grant, he earned a nomination for the 2009 Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Then in 2010, Asher won The Age Critics Choice Award and garnered a Best Newcomer nomination at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

‘Beautifully crafted and utterly unique’
Stephens is a jolly, chatty and upbeat stand-up, and offers a night of amiable good company. A purveyor of intelligent, punchline driven humour,this sharp and sometimes controversial talent quickly established herself with audiences in Britain and has also captured the interest of broadcasters as a bright new writer.
Since early 2011, this London born comic has been based in Sydney and has been welcomed by audiences with generous volume of laughter.
”a collection of great laughs. delivered brilliantly.” -BBCi
