Ben Ellwood’s honesty behind the mic and willingness to test the expectations of any audience has earned him a place as a must see comic. By the end of one of his performances you will see the world from a different angle. From his dark, discerning and sometimes disgusting beautiful angle. Ben has a cult following, and after you witness him, you will see why. He was selected for Melbourne Comedy Festival’s ‘Comedy Zone’ in 2007 and had regular segments on Triple J radio from 2008-2010.
Ellwood is a welcomed punch in the face when the world has become bland. It’s raw, vitriolic and you will be laughing at things you never thought it was possible.
Keasty has been doing standup comedy since 2004 from Sydney to New York City! His style of comedy involves singing a few songs on guitar, general observations, and a bit of cheeky wrongness. One year he even had the chance to open the Mildura Country Music Week and you can hear a few of his songs on Triple J Unearthed.
He starred in the 8 part comedic drama series “I Rock” for ABC2 where he played the drummer of the band and the heart of the series. He has busked unsuccessfully at Central Station which made him exactly no money. Apparently songs about his Mighty Balls and how much he likes cows, just doesn’t cut it in the harsh busking world.
