Sam Bowring & Rodney Todd
Sam began performing standup comedy at the famous (at the time) Harold Park Hotel when he was 16, getting his first paid gig at 17. He has since been runner-up in the Raw Comedy National Final, nominated for Best Emerging Comic at the Adelaide Fringe, and for both Best Newcomer and the Piece of Wood Awards at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Luckily, he’s never actually won anything, so this mild success never went to his head.
He has supported the likes of Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes, and Arj Barker amongst others, and appeared often on TV, radio and in comedy festival shows around the country.
Sam’s television writing credits include the popular children’s sketch show ‘You’re Skitting Me’, as well as ‘The Big Bite’, ‘The Mansion’ and ‘The Ronnie Johns Half Hour’. He was a contributing writer and performer on ‘Stand-up! Australia’, and a staff writer on ‘Rove’.
“****- undeniably funny.’”
“He makes it easy to laugh… an immensely likeable boyishness.”
“His jokes are like ninjas quietly sneaking up on you”
Rodney Todd was born an immature baby. He started doing comedy when he was 27 because he wanted to make heaps of money and get groupies. He’s made a few hundred dollars so far and been approach by several wig making companies.
His style is nothing like Jordan Paris, and has never stolen any jokes that anybody has heard before.
He’s a bit weird, surreal, nonchalant, informative and is 5 foot 4. That’s three inches taller than Iggy Pop!
He is pretty cool and likes music so he is a regular on 2Ser’s Alternative Music show with Wayne DZ.
