Xavier Susai (MC)
With a range of vocal skills including a talent for accents, beat-boxing and sound fx, Xavier delivers a unique style of comedy, incorporating his broad life experiences. His talent has earned him a National Finalist placing in Australia’s signature comedy competitions Triple J’s Raw Comedy and Green Faces. Consequently, Xavier performed at the prestigious Melbourne Town Hall in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, broadcast nationally on ABC TV. Now a 10+ year veteran of the Australian circuit, he’s performed with some of comedy’s biggest names including Julia Morris, Tom Gleeson, Chris “The Bloke” Franklin, Claire Hooper, Gordon Southern (UK), Greg Fleet, Brendon Burns (Edinburgh Fringe Award Winner), Peter Rowsthorn and Dave Callan. “An overnight sensation” ~ The West Australian
Janelle Koenig (Headline)
A star on the national circuit, Janelle Koenig (Sunday Times columnist, as heard on Mix 94.5) has worked with some of the best in the biz – Richard Stubbs, Carl Barron, Dave Hughes, Rachel Berger and recently, on Telethon, with Fat Cat and the Lord Mayor of Perth. She’s performed at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the first St Kilda Laugh Fest and the Brisbane Impro Fest. After multiple appearances on the Comedy Channel, Janelle was hand-picked by NBC as one of only two comedians in Melbourne to represent Australia in Last Comic Standing in Miami, Florida. Since relocating to WA in 2010, the accomplished comedian has become one of Perth’s most popular headline acts with her unique blend of honest stand-up, cheeky songs and sometimes far too personal tales. She might look innocent – and that’s exactly how she gets away with it!
Matt Storer (Support)
Known for his imaginative style, Matt creates refreshingly original comedy, both on his feet and behind a piano. Since taking out both the WA Raw Comedy and Funny Faces competitions, Matt’s established himself as one of the state’s finest comics. His energetic flare, lyrical skill and larger-than-life stage presence has seen him become a seasoned regular on comedy stages all over WA, with acclaimed performances around Australia and in the UK. His inventive mix of stand-up and musical comedy saw him crowned Nova FM’s Comedic Free Thinker of 2019.
