Nominee Barry Award 2015 & 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival
Winner Directors' Choice Award 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival (for True Aussie Patriots)
Damien Power is undeniably the most exhilarating fresh voice on the comedy circuit. Not afraid to wade into deep water, Damien takes on the absurdity of humans en masse, the illogic of the herd and the systems that pull our strings. All delivered with a force that is compelling, surprising and relentlessly hilarious.
In 2016, he not only walked away with the Directors' Choice Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as part of the cult-hit group True Australian Patriots, he was also nominated for the Festival’s top prize, the Barry Award for Best Show, for the second year in a row.
His assured delivery and intricately crafted and thought-provoking material saw him selected as one of the few acts to feature in ABC TV’s Next Gen series, as well as perform at the invitation-only Just For Laughs Festival at the Sydney Opera House. He has also appeared in his own regular segment, 'Power to the People', on Network Ten’s The Project and as a guest on ABC TV’s Dirty Laundry Live.
With jokes that swerve from the everyday to the existential, an hour with Damien Power will leave you thinking and laughing… and thinking again.
