Known as one of Australia’s most successful talk show hosts and one of the biggest producers of entertainment television, but standup comedy is where it all began for Rove, and we can’t wait to have him on the Grapes of Mirth stage, doing what he does best!

Rove McManus

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

With a reputation as one of the best young comedians in the country, Bec showcased her comedy on the ‘Lockdown Comedy Festival’ stand-up series for Stan. She’s the co-host of the brilliant and widely popular ‘Ladies Guide to Dude Cinema’ podcast. With effortless ability and hilarious honesty, Bec delights with anecdotes about her life, observations on society and stories about her family.

Bec Charlwood

Greg Larsen is one of Australia’s people, fact. He’s also one of the funniest. Last year he was nominated for “Best Show” at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. That’s cool. He’s been making us laugh for years on stage and screen and was a regular on ‘Tonightly with Tom Ballard’. This is the first time we’ve been able to get Greg to a Grapes of Mirth!

Over the course of the last 15 years, Justin has won awards for his solo stand up comedy shows including the Director’s Choice Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. In 2011, The Arts Monthly announced that Justin was the Comedian of the Decade. In 2019 he won Best Comedy at the Adelaide Fringe Festival for the play Three Dances for John Tilt Animus which Justin wrote, directed and starred in.

Justin Hamilton

Bronwyn Kuss is one of the most exciting new voices in Australian comedy. She’s won a bunch of award including “Directors Choice” at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Bronwyn has two seperate degrees but more importantly she is also the only comedian we know who has worked in a women’s correctional facility. She’ll find Grapes of Mirth to her speed.

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.
