Joe White is the newcomer to watch at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Racing up the ranks, in 2016 he's already won the Perth Fringe Festival Gong Comedy, Mandurah Crabfest Comedy, Perth Next Gen Comedy and WA Funnyfaces Runner up.

Looks like 2016 was a good harvest for Joe as one of his career highlights was being chosen to support International comedian Maz Jobrani an Iranian-American comedian and actor in early 2016. This tour had Joe performing to a crowd of more than 2000 comedy lovers in 3 different states around Australia.

Joe arrived in Perth at the age of 11 with his family as a refugee from war-torn Sudan. Amidst all he's gone through, Joe always chased the upside in life and this inspired him to pursue comedy. Knowing the value of laughter, his passion is to make others laugh too.

This show is about to tour all around the USA & Canada from June this year, so be sure to catch it before the Americans and the Canadians. Here for 10 shows only, and loved by many around Australia, don't miss out on this opportunity before it leaves our shores.

MC and Support Act, young up and coming comedian Jason Wood is no slouch. A 'wildcard' at the recent 2017 (9 March) Raw Comedy held at the Charles Hotel in Perth, Western Australia, he was in the WA Semifinal 2.

Lucky enough to see him in action as an MC at a wedding I recently attended at the end of February, I'd say Jason's comedic style can at first seem quietly understated, but packs an intelligent punch that'll have you guffawing long after the punchline has ended. Impressive! With these two young men to entertain you, you'd be missing out if you don't go; so GO!
