Gunnedah Shire Council is proud to announce three of the comedic acts coming to town for the Gunnedah leg of The Melbourne International Comedy Roadshow of 2017.

Australian Comedian Daniel Connell will be gracing our stage with his laid back Aussie humour. The man of very few words has been dubbed ‘one to watch’ on the Australian Comedy circuit by The Age. A performer not to be missed, Daniel’s commentary on life will have you sniggering and giggling.

David Quirk is a stand-up comedian based in Melbourne. In 2006, David was a state finalist in Triple J’s ‘Raw Comedy’ competition, and in 2007, made his Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut and has since performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Quirk by name and by nature, his act has been reviewed as “An intelligent hour of comedy that is both funny and philosophical, full of uncomfortable truths, black humour, and brutal honesty."

Adam Hess is a big name from the UK, having received the Chortle Student Comedy Award 2011 and been nominated for best newcomer award at the 2015 Edinburgh Comedy Awards. He has been screened on The BBC, Comedy Up Late and Comedy Central. His credentials include his First Aid Training and ability to moon walk. This cheeky guy from London will have you roaring with laughter.
