Nazeem Hussain has fast become one of the biggest stars of Australian comedy, and a much loved television and radio personality. Glam Adelaide reckons “This man embodies comic genius” and we couldn’t agree more.

Nazeem Hussain

Gez has a deceptively effortless knack for turning low-key yarns about agapanthuses and bouncy-castles into high-stakes, helplessly funny narrative rollercoasters. She has won the biggest award in Australian Comedy, and the Comedians Choice award, she’s the best in the biz, and we can’t get enough!

Geraldine Hickey

An award-winning stand-up comedian/actor/writer/broadcaster/person who always gives 100%. He’s one of Australia’s hottest comic talents, he’s performed and won acclaim all around the world; Edinburgh, Montreal, London, and he even once roast-battled Jimmy Carr and didn’t die in the process. His list of awards are many and extensive and include the Helpmann Award for Best Show and the Pinder Prize, both at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. And boy, do we miss him hosting ABC’s ‘Tonightly with Tom Ballard’.

Tom Ballard

Writer, noodle enthusiast, designer, actor, rugby lover, and rescue greyhound owner. Lizzy is also a stand-up comedian who has rapidly become one of Australia’s most exciting new voices. She’s spent the last two years touring with the biggest names in comedy and her solo shows sell out instantly. Lizzy is going BIG places.

Lizzy Hoo

The host of ‘Hughesy We Have A Problem’, ‘The Masked Singer’ and one half of HIT Network’s ‘Hughesy & Ed’. Dave is back for another Grapes of Mirth stint after appearing at the very first GoM event in early 2017. The great man is in great form and it’s great to have him back!

Dave Hughes

The “Merric” from Merrick and Rosso. Mez, as he is affectionately known, has worked at almost every radio and TV station in the country. You might have seen him recently getting smashed in the face on SAS Australia, Australia’s REAL reality show. Mez loves wine, so much so that he’s a qualified sommelier, with dreams of retiring to a big Chesterfield, smoking a cigar and drinking Cabernet.

If Grapes of Mirth falls in a Vineyard and DJ Pedro Moshman isn’t there to pick us up and get us dancing, did GoM really ever happen? No, it did not. No Pedro, No Party.

Back to where it all began

Last time we visited McLaren Vale was March 2019, and we’ve just been itching to get back. In what has been such a strange year, we want to finish things off with a Christmas Extravaganza like no other. This will be a limited capacity event with extra legroom; think of it like you’re own private Christmas party, but with comedians as your friends!

Don’t delay on this one, just get on it, PRONTO!
