Dave O’Neil has been pondering if things really were better back in his day.

Put two of Australia’s favourite comedians together for a night of hilarious and revealing moments.

Back in my day

Was life really better in the 70s and 80s when every child was called David or Michelle? Are we better off with Tarquin and Forrest? For people over thirty, this show will be a confirmation of every thing they ever thought. For people under thirty, it will be more like a history lesson. daveoneil.com.au

JACK DRUCE

DOUBLE HAPPINESS

A new show from Australia’s youngest comedy veteran about kayaking down the Grand Canyon, an emotionally devastating peach and a game of UNO Jack once played. This is not edgy. He’s quite nice. Still, don’t bring kids.

Bart Freebairn is a really great comedian who will make you laugh with big fat silly jokes full of fancy ideas and ridiculous imagery. Double Happiness is a wonderful show that could potentially give you triple happiness.

Happiness Not Included Award-winning comedian Matt Okine has spent the past 12 months performing around the world to rave reviews... but awards don’t pay the bills.

But what’s the point of wearing a money snuggie if there’s no-one there to tell you how stupid you look in it?
