CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FEATURES:
Jez Margosis continually delivers whether it’s performing stand up or choking someone out on the mats. This Green Faces national finalists outlandish stories are as memorable as his name and as mesmerising as his biceps.
Greg is the fourth funniest person in his family of six. One part vague, three parts oblivious, he meanders through life as an adult-sized man-baby. Like adults do to him, he’ll tickle your chin and you’ll giggle.
Danny likes long walks on the beach and once got thrown out of a vegetable growing competition for disorderly conduct. The feet of dancer and the soul of a startled swan, come into a world that has been described as “sufficient”.
Like a cross between Kevin Bloody Wilson and Jack Johnson his songs are catchy, poignant and sometimes a little bit blue. Hamish has been performing hilarious songs about nothing from Melbourne to Sydney and even Boorowa (don’t ask).
Marie has been on SBS’s fat pizza and is fully sik and fully lowered. A mild mannered psychotherapist by day and paranoid psychoid comedian by night, Marie is not afraid to offend or to offer free therapy to those offended by her material.
Shows will include special guest spots from Canberra comedians including Simon Bower, Tim Noon, Harris Stuckey and Shahed Sharify.
