COMEDY AT MARDIGRASS 2016

Longer, Stronger, HIGHER! with HOSS
Hemp Olympix Sports Show: Nimbin Town Hall, Saturday April 30, 7.30-9.30pm.

Saturday night at MardiGrass will be more fun than ever with the premiere of the Hemp Olympix Sports Show (HOSS). HOSS is sort of Graham Norton meets the Footy Show. Hosted by MardiGrass's resident comedians and Hemp Olympix officials, Alan Glover and S Sorrensen, HOSS will discuss, dissect and deride historical and current trends in Hemp sports. Special guests include sporting comedian Steady Eddy, politician Fiona Patten (Australian Sex Party), medicinal cannabis experts Abe Acton (Colorado) and Ajia Mae Moon (Canada), plus more. HOSS will also feature selected athletes from the Hemp Olympix revealing their sporting secrets. Their sporting efforts from that day will be reviewed by the panel on the big HOSS screen. Ain't nothing funnier than sport.

Steady Eddy:

Steady Eddy has been regular guest on the Midday Show with Ray Martin, Tonight Live with Steve Vizard, A Country Practice and State Coroner. He's toured with Midnight Oil and done a zillion comedy gigs (and glasses of bourbon). But now Steady is a hippy. He loves MardiGrass, and is a keen fan of the Hemp Olympix.

Alan Glover & S Sorrensen

Alan is a comedian who has made 'em laugh all over the world. He has work on televison and done shows at clubs, comedy festivals, folk festivals and little tiny bars way back of Bourke. He and S share a love of sport, and he is a certified Hemp Olympix official.

S Sorrensen: Comedian, writer and former world bong-throw champion (Stockholm Hemp Olympix, 1986), S calls Nimbin home, and, along with his mate Alan, devotes his life to the pursuit of sporting perfection.

Laugh Mob Presents:

Marty Bright


Marty Bright has taken his individual brand of physical and observational hybrid comedy across Australia. He has been part of Sydney Comedy Festival: Breakout Showcase, FRESH and Sydney Comedy Festival Roadshow. Most recently Brighty Boy performed across North America, appearing at LA's Comedy Store and New York's Carolines Comedy Club.....Marty Bright is proudly brought to you by SpaceCake.

Arnie Pie

Arnie Pie has been embarrassing himself on stage for a few years now, bombing at comedy venues across the city of Sydney. He's even stretched his failures in & around interstate Australia, the UK & New York City. In other news, Bruce Griffiths (Stand up comic, Good News Week) has stated that Arnold, "Walked on like he was born to do it & proceeded to tear the roof off". Growing up as a kid, Arnold had a phobia of buttons...

Ruven Govender

'Ethnic' comedians, have long mined their difference for comedy gold. Ruven takes this raw material, and goes further, fashions it into finer detailed character observations that take the usual "my mother talks like this" and turn them on their head, forging combinations of race, popular culture and identity to reveal something new and very funny for the audience.

Sam Kissajukian

Sam seems in many ways, a Victorian time traveller, filtering his comic tales and observations through the persona of an angry arts student. With his own blend of steam-punk humour and intellectual reflection and touch of the absurd, he holds his own special brass and copper framed mirror up to contemporary life and shows the audience how everyday realities are often deeply strange and funny.

Kyle Legacy

Kyles operates in what seems to be a goofy haze; easily lifting the audience up to the same high spirits as himself. Once there, he reveals an a skill for surreal interludes into the absurd, showing his very genuine childlike sense of wonder in the world around him - a place which he reveals to the crowd as a baffling but very amusing place to be. 420 is my Hanukkah!
