Lineup

One of the biggest stars of Australian comedy, Nazeem Hussain, is a much loved television and radio personality. His Netflix special ‘Nazeem Hussain: Public Frenemy’, filmed in Montreal at the Just For Laughs Festival, started streaming globally in 2019, introducing Nazeem to a legion of new fans, and critical acclaim. Star of ‘Orange Is The New Brown’ and survivor of ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’, Naz is one of the most likeable comedians in the biz. Super funny, utterly engaging and adored by punters and comedians alike. Don’t miss his set!

Nazeem Hussain

Star of Channel 9’s ‘Metro Sexual’ and also staring on ABC’s ‘Rosehaven’ alongside Luke McGregor and Celia Pacquola. WINNER of the ‘Piece of Wood Award’ at the Melbourne Comedy Festival 2019, and nominated for most outstanding show; Geraldine is in red hot stand-up form. A stalwart of the Australian comedy scene, Geraldine has been seen on ‘The Oxfam Comedy Gala’, ‘Upfront: The Queens of Comedy Gala’, ‘Tonightly’ and ‘Comedy Next Gen’.

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. In 2018 she was invited to perform at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival at the Sydney Opera House, with her spot broadcast on Network Ten and Foxtel’s Comedy Channel. Lizzy performed her first solo show Hoo Am I? (What’s My Name?) to sold-out audiences at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Lizzy Hoo

The host of Triple J Weekday Lunch, Dave is an absolute rising star of Australian comedy. You might have seen him on ABC’s ‘Black Comedy’, not only as feature cast but he was also on the writing team. He’s writing skills have also come in handy for ABC’s ‘Get Krackin’ and he’s also appeared on ‘Be Your Own Boss’ and SBS Viceland ‘The Feed’. You’re going to be seeing a lot more of him around, and we’re delighted to welcome him to GoM.

David Woodhead

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.

Merrick Watts

DJ Pedro Moshman is no ordinary DJ, there’s a reason why we take him around the country to all our Grapes of Mirth events. His ‘DJ Super Powers’ allow him to know what song to play, when to play it, and whom to play it for! The end result? Entertainment between comedy acts, and a dance party to finish off the day.

Experiences

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!
