Alex Williamson Oi Mate!

The loosest Aussie bloke, Alex Williamson, is back with another crushing hour of pure, uncut comedy platinum. A comedy festival isn’t complete without an aggressive Australian telling jokes in an hilariously threatening manner, baring all with the type of truth usually reserved for therapy sessions.

Enter the mind of Shooter if you dare – as he breaks down walls with his bare hands (metaphorical bricks on the walls of social norms, he’s not doing house renos).

Since starting out in stand-up in 2007, this country South Australian lad has made a global name for himself – from living in LA back in the day, where he was somehow entrusted to attend events and interview A-List celebs on the red carpet for FOX FM, to being flown back there some ten years later to shoot with comedy legend Sacha Baron Cohen, to starring in a zombie movie with Jim Jefferies and selling out Australian, Edinburgh Fringe and New Zealand seasons year after year.

Allow (internet) famous comedian Alex Williamson (1.3 million Facebook, 586k Instagram, 625k YouTube, 17 Tinder) and his crude yet sharp persona make you laugh, think and possibly even cry (if he squirrel grips a front row patron).

You know the drill – book early mates!

'Hilarious... the Aussie comic has well and truly earned his rave reputation.' The Speakeasy (NZ)

'It is a massive relief to find a bloke like Alex Williamson – laidback, punchy, charismatic, fearless and provocative – as hilarious as it is appalling. I hope he never mellows.' The Scotsman 

'His observational humour should serve as a very necessary kick in the bollocks to many of his overexposed predecessors. This is how a modern comic mind SHOULD work… there’s no doubt he’s leaving his status as cult hero in his raucous wake. There’s no need for compromise with such a keen eye, wicked mind and razor-sharp tongue. ★★★★' Herald Sun
