More Aussie stand-ups... 

Ronny Chieng: The Ron Way 

Winner of the Best Newcomer award at last year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival, Chieng (right) takes The Ron Way to Edinburgh in August where he makes his Fringe debut, and London soon after.

Condescending and hilarious, Ron has a staggering intellect, and knows it, so he proceeds to batter you and your insignificant-by-comparison IQ over the head to shows why, among other things, being Chinese is really, really cool.  

Soho Theatre, W1D 3NE. August TBC

Matt Okine: Being Black & Chicken & S#%t 

Matt has been taking his Being Black... show around the world for the past 12 months, winning himself the joint Best Newcomer award at last year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival.

He’s been slaying crowds with his well-crafted, superbly told stand-up, and tackles the silly as well as the serious. The 2Day FM Comedy God 2004 finalist is one to watch and also makes his Edinburgh Fringe debut in August.

Claudia O’Doherty: Pioneer 

The eccentric and unpredictable Melbournite returns to Edinburgh to dazzle, stun and perplex in equal measure. Last year’s Fringe show The Telescope was a wild concoction of ‘upsetting theatre’ and historical spoofs that took apart theatrical conventions before submitting itself to Claudia’s whim. So who knows where the lass will go this year.  

The Invisible Dot, N1 9BG.

Benny Boot: As Seen On TV 

He stormed the Altitude Festival last year and has since been hailed by the likes of Andrew Maxwell and Marcus Brigstocke as the next ‘comic’s comic’. He’s taking all this hoopla by staging his very own TV show in Edinburgh this year.

The performances will be filmed, despite the small matter of Benny not actually having a TV show … yet. Catch this one-of-a-kind comedy before he heads north of the border. Crack Comedy Kingston, KT2 5EE.

Jen Carnovale: Is Not A Person 

Despite appearances, the former Triple J host, who was a semi-finalist at last year’s Leicester Square New Act of the Year comp, insists with her new show she’s not a person. Why? You could ask Sam Simmons, in whose Urban Monkey show she’s appeared. Or you could check her out at this year’s Fringe – her third time up north – or at one of her London preview shows.
