Brett has strutted his stuff on The Footy Show and The Comedy Channel’s Stand Up Australia, and has entertained Aussie and New Zealand troops in East Timor and the Solomon Islands.A finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Brett’s versatility and ad-libbing excellence see him transfer every show into a night his audience will never forget! His mix of the 'clever' and the 'rude' will appeal to the yuppie and yobbo in everyone.
Brett has also worked as an Audience Warm-Up Comedian for Ready Steady Cook!, The NRL Footy Show, Top Gear Australia, Fox Sports' The League Lounge and Gladiators.
Brett, along with his identical twin brother and partner in crime, Mark, is also an award-winning filmmaker and screenwriter. The twins’ short film Identical was a finalist in Tropfest 2016, while Washed Up, another short comedy, made competition’s shortlist in 2014. They were also runners up at the 2003 IF Awards, being nominated for Best Unproduced Screenplay, for their comedy feature film script Hodads.
Brett is also a fine dramatic actor. In 2014 he starred in The Comedian, a powerful 15 minute short drama directed by Brendan Donoghue, which screened at film festivals around the world, including the Melbourne Film Festival and Flickerfest, in 2015. It also won ‘Outstanding Short’ at the Short Sweet Film Fest in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
Raised in Arizona before moving to Australia in 1992, American stand-up star Tommy Dean occupies the top echelons of Australia’s headline comedy artists.Tommy’s astute observational style and pleasantly soothing drawl consistently make him a standout winner with theatre audiences, corporate clients, festival producers, TV and radio shows alike. With pin-sharp banter, a genial manner, and vast stock of hilarious routines with broad appeal, Tommy interweaves the foibles of his adopted Australia with the dark reality of his home country. Tommy never fails to connect with and impress any audience.
Tommy’s impressive media CV includes appearances on Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Stand Up Australia, Rove Live, Joker Poker, Sunrise, The Today Show and The Sideshow. Tommy has lived in Sydney long enough to carve out a career that has him consistently booked as the go-to crowd warm-up for ‘smart’ TV shows; including the very popular Q and A, Gruen Planet, Gruen Transfer and the Prime Minister’s Australian of the Year awards ceremony.
Tommy can be heard regularly on ABC 702 radio, where he is a frequent guest on Richard Glover’s Thank God It’s Friday drive show – and an unexpected temporary move back to the US in late 2019 saw Tommy sending in a weekly ‘Letter from America’ for the show, which has proven to be a huge hit with listeners.
Sunday Oct 25th - Gretel Killeen & Sean WoodlandGretel Killeen is a best-selling author, award-wining comedy writer and host of award-winning TV.

Turns out, his passion for comedy was much more than that of being a public servant. He kicked off into the comedy circuit by winning the Quest for the Best competition and the Crows Nest’s comedy competition in the same year. His horizons are not just limited to the stage. Sean is a flourishing free-lancer and author with quite a few sardonic pieces published in numerous Australian magazines and newspapers.
