LLOYD LANGFORD (UK)
My Name Is Lloyd

Touring Australia for a second year, My Name Is Lloyd is an hour of jokes, anecdotes, observations, petty grievances, grudges and accents. Only messing, there’ll just be the one accent; Welsh. There’ll probably be jokes about snoring, opportunity shops and buttock surgery. As seen on Have You Been Paying Attention? (Channel 10).

'Sweet voiced wolf in sheep’s clothing…Lloyd Langford is a comedian to keep an eye on.' ★★★★ Theatre People

MARK WATSON (UK)
This Can't Be It

Watson is halfway through his life, if he's lucky. That life is in the best shape it's been for a long time... but one problem remains, and it's a huge one. Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as Mark attempts to cram a year of pathological overthinking into an hour. He'll tackle the huge problem. It's worth arriving a little early.
