13 FEB - Zoë Coombs Marr
Award-winning Zoë Coombs Marr brings a new hour of stand up to Darlinghurst Theatre Company's Comedy Kiki Festival.
Zoë has performed stand up comedy extensively in Australia, London and New York. In 2018, her hit festival offering Bossy Bottom saw Zoe nominated for Best Comedy Performer at the Helpmann Awards and won her a prestigious Herald Angel Award in Edinburgh. Bossy Bottom has been filmed for international release on Amazon Prime Video in 2020.
Her solo show, Trigger Warning, won Most Outstanding Show at the 2016 Melbourne Comedy Festival, as well as the Golden Gibbo, and two Green Room Awards. It was also nominated for Best Show at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Drama.
14 FEB - Geraldine Hickey
Geraldine is the type of person who is happy to let other people lead. Leaders do all the work and know what’s around the corner. Geraldine doesn’t want to know what’s around the corner, she wants to believe there might be a bouncy castle there.
Following a breakthrough year in 2019, Geraldine received a nomination for the Melbourne Comedy Festival Award for the Most Outstanding Show for Things Are Going Well, while also taking home the coveted Piece of Wood Award - a prize determined by fellow comics during the festival. Respect!
This year, Geraldine is proving to everyone, including herself, that life begins at 40. After years of slogging it out on the Australian comedy circuit, she now sells out shows, has a steady job in radio, a fiancé, owns an inner-city pad and drives a fancy pants car.
15 FEB - Nath Valvo
A born chatterbox, Nath Valvo is coming to Sydney this February to chat to you! Drawing heavily on his personal life, this hour of joke telling promises to deliver what Nath does best – to tease people who make good life choices.
Fast, sharp, proper funny stand-up, Nath’s hilariously physical, high-energy comedy is impressing critics and winning over crowds globally. In 2019, he was nominated for Most Outstanding Show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival – how fancy. The show went on to smash festivals across the country and then Edinburgh, receiving a swag of five-star reviews, selling out so many shows and telling oh so many jokes. One of the hottest comedians in the country right now.
In 2019, Nath toured a new show, I’m Happy For You which saw him nominated for Most Outstanding Show in the Melbourne Comedy Festival where he appeared again in their gala for Oxfam, and then took I’m Happy For You to Edinburgh Fringe.
We're thrilled to reveal the brand new line up for Comedy Kiki 2020!
