Australia’s Three Michelin Star Comedian, Danny McGinlay has been performing stand up since the age of 16. In that time he has performed all over Australia and done stints in London, New York and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Danny has also been on the television numerous times: Rove, The Project, The Footy Show, The Circle, John Saffran’s Race Relations, The Mansion, City Homicide, Stand up Australia, and he had one line in Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Pacific’.
He made his Hollywood debut in the Nicolas Cage thriller ‘Knowing’. He appears in the opening scene, which means if you list the cast in order of appearance, he has top billing.
Laura produces a playful and starkly honest brand of comedy that is equal parts manic and marvelous.
She won the WA Raw Comedy state final 2008 and was one quarter of the 2009 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s ‘Comedy Zone’, a handpicked showcase of the best up and coming talent in the country. She is also your host this week at a Mic in Hand.
Laura recently supported Laurence Leung at the Perth leg of his Australian tour and she is making more and more noise with each outing.
Among her fans is renowned comedy genius, Daniel Kitson, who went as far as listing her in his ‘must see’ list for her recent run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
