About the artists

Dilruk Jayasinha

Hailing from Sri Lanka, Dilruk Jayasinha is one of the most in demand headliners on the Australian and international comedy scene; with credits ranging from appearances at Just for Laughs, a sold out show at MICF 2017; The Art of the Dil; and two recorded hour-long specials, for the ABC and Amazon Prime released globally in 2020.

Dil has regularly appeared on Network Ten’s HYBPA; Hughesy We Have a Problem and held a recurring role on How to Stay Married.

Dil reached national audiences with his appearance in the sixth series of I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! Australia.

Tahir

Tahir is an award-winning, internationally acclaimed stand-up comedian, with a huge list of credits to his name—including co-creating and starring in two nationally praised sit-coms—Street Smart (Ten) and Here Come The Habibs (Nine).

He is also a Logie Award winning actor, having starred in Fat Pizza, Swift and Shift Couriers and Housos, and three feature films.

Of Turkish descent, Tahir is simply one of Australia’s finest stand-up comedians.

Known for his hugely popular live performances, which have spanned over two decades, he is a multi-talented and dynamic live performer.

Jeff Green

Jeff Green has been a much-loved presence on Australian TV and radio since he first hit our shores in 1996 for his debut MICF season.

Jeff is a best-selling author (with his books selling over 300,000 copies) and an impressive career spanning a solo West-End season, three full length UK TV comedy specials, two Australian TV comedy specials, and countless appearances on TV gala specials and comedy panel shows both here and, in the UK, including Spicks and Specks (ABC), Good News Week (Ten) and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala (Ten).

Ting Lim

Ting Lim has a dark wit and distinctive style, which has made her a rising star in the Australian comedy scene.

Following her debut at the prestigious MICF RAW national comedy finals in 2018, Ting has gone on to represent Queensland in the national Green Faces competition and has become a regular at the renowned Sit Down Comedy Club in Brisbane.

Ting’s comedy has taken her from her native Singapore, to sharing the stage and screen with Jimeoin—most recently, in Waltzing Jimeoin (Ten) and guest starring alongside Kitty Flanagan, Aaron Chen and Marty Sheargold in season two of Fisk (ABC). 

Ben Lomas

Ben Lomas's laidback nature and style provides relatable stand-up with a flair of unpredictability which brings his audience in for the ride.

Ben has described growing up in a loving, but Dutch,family, making him very honest and open (as the Dutch are “super blunt” in his own words).

Ben likes unpacking the difficult (trivial) things in life, working out why he's not good at it, and finding unhelpful solutions.

Ben’s recent television appearances include Mad As Hell (ABC), The Front Bar (Seven), The Weekly (ABC) and The Cheap Seats (Ten). In a career highlight, Ben was recently invited to perform at Just For Laughs (Australia).
