A massive congratulations to Fabian Woods from Western Australia - our 2019 Deadly Funny National Winner! Fabian had the audience and judges (Kevin Kropinyeri, Caroline Martin, Celia Pacquola and Sam Simmons) in stitches from the get-go, with nonstop punchlines and tales of growing up in a low socio-economic community. The event was expertly hosted by Steph Tisdell, and special guests Luca & Tyler Saunders, Dhungala Baarka and 2018 Deadly Funny winner Leon Filewood all performed killer sets.
