Friday 3 March from 8pm to 9pm
Adult: $25 AUD + BF
Curated by award-winning comedian, writer and producer, AJ Lamarque, some of Australia's most exciting LGBTQIA+ comedians will be showcased in a night of unparalleled and unconventional comedy.
Joining AJ will be: acclaimed writer and storyteller, Jack Gow; actor & musical comedian Ally Morgan; award-winning stand-up comedian Madeleine Stewart; and our headliner, the multidisciplinary performer & writer, Jared Jekyll.
So get ready for a fabulous, hilarious and damn right flirtatious night of comedy at Sydney’s only theatre that looks over famous Bondi Beach.
Bondi's Comedy Extravaganza is presented by Waverley Council as part of Pride Amplified.
With a BA in Music Theatre (which they barely use), award-winning Writer and Performer Jared Jekyll has done stuff.
They have been seen on TV as a comedian; actor and capitalist puppet: peddling everything from Fast Food and Pharmaceuticals, to Alcohol and Tech. They have been heard on Radio, as a personality and musical artist. One time they opened for late rap legend DMX.
Jared has supported international acts Tony Hinchcliffe, DJ Douggpound, Ari Shaffir & Tom Green both in Australia and in the USA.
They're pretty good and talented but perpetually on the edge of leaving the industry because their imposter syndrome has a god complex.
AJ Lamarque has a warm and endearing energy about him that instantly makes audiences feel comfortable. Combined with an equally engaging aptitude for comedy, AJ has garnered a formidable reputation as a skilled writer, a charismatic performer and a beloved name in the community.
