Artist Recommendations: Dane Simpson

A list of top ten picks of the Festival program by Dane Simpson

Wagga Wagga's very own Dane Simpson has played to sold out crowds across the country and is a Festival fave - you've seen him on The Gala, now check out what he thinks you need to see this Fest! 

Bella Green
An incredible insight into the world of sex workers. Very funny, maybe somewhat educational and extremely entertaining.

Ben Knight
An incredibly smart comedian. Ben has a teaching background and his shows are as smart as they are silly.

Chris Ryan
One of my favourites! Chris Ryan will be a superstar. Go see her show. Brilliantly sarcastic.

Daniel Muggleton 
Brilliant comedian. Quick witted and beautifully brash. Daniel has returned from the UK sharper then ever.

Ellen Briggs & Mandy Nolan
Two of the absolute best comedians in Australia together! This is genuinely an unmissable show.

Geraldine Hickey
I absolutely love Geraldine Hickey. We are friends. She is super hilarious.

Jude Perl
One of my absolute favourite humans. Jude has an amazing voice and fantastic songs. Jude is just damn talented! 

Mel Buttle
Mel Buttle is awesome. We have been on MICF Roadshow together on multiple occasions. Mel is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met.

Michelle Brasier
Singer, Writer, Performer... Everything! Michelle is from Wagga Wagga (where all the good comedians come from). Just go see Michelle and have a incredible experience.

Nikki Britton
The Best. A superstar of comedy. Go watch Nikki’s show and you will thank me after.

Takashi Wakasugi 
Waka is from Japan. He has his own brand of comedy. Very funny. Awesomely different.
