Scotty is quite possibly the funniest person in Australia, whether she’s touring the country with best pal Judith Lucy, joining the team on Have You Been Paying Attention?, or on stage at a winery, you are guaranteed a good time.

Denise Scott

Geraldine won the biggest award in live comedy this year, the Best Show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Gez has a deceptively effortless knack for turning low-key yarns about agapanthuses and bouncy-castles into high-stakes, helplessly funny narrative rollercoasters. She is the best in the biz, and we can’t get enough!

Geraldine Hickey

Bursting onto the scene in 2017, he was nominated for the prestigious ‘Best Newcomer’ award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) and has since gone on to perform comedy all over the world, culminating in winning the ‘Pinder Prize’ at this year’s MICF. Sam juggles stand up and various media projects, including his role as a roving idiot for Channel 10’s ‘The Project’.

Sam Taunton

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 “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.
