ROLL UP! Meet the keepers of the House, Dave and Tamara... For more than 20 years, performing power couple and Laughter advocates Dave Evans and Tamara Campbell have been making audiences happy all around the world. They met as performers and soon discovered a shared interest in being at the epicenter of funny stuff – taking great pleasure in watching people smile, cackle, involuntarily double over with joy, and sometimes even wet themselves.

Dave Evans

Hi Dave here. At aged 14, I literally ran away to join the circus. Sounds romantic but in reality, circus saved my life! A troubled youth gave way to a lifelong passion for the energy, spontaneity and joy found in the ring and then shaped the cornerstone of Laughter House. I believe that performance should be for everyone. No matter how young, old, rich, poor, sophisticated or not. I am eternally grateful for my introduction into the fabulous world of comedy circus and have made it my life’s work to re-gift that chance to others.

Hi, Tamara here. I believe that the world needs more and better laughter. That laughter should be a force for good. Bringing humans together to share and connect, breaking down the barriers and masks that inhibit our progress as a race. I also believe that it is fundamental that we have bloody good time together as often as possible. I have been fortunate enough to


“You, your tents and your artists are AWESOME” – Valley Lipcer, Director, Falls Festival

“Thanks for an amazing week at NightFest, it was fantastic, a real success!” – Floriade Canberra, ACT Government

Over 55 years collectively in the business (we’re not that old, we just started really young...)

spend my entire career spreading joy and laughter and gently nudging people out of their comfort zones to discover that there is always more. I have done this across the globe in different languages and for varying cultures and the one thing that always stands out, is that people are naturally willing to connect and let the guard down, sometimes they just need an environment that makes that OK.

“We recently had the absolute pleasure of a surprise performance by Kiki (Tamara Campbell) at a workshop attended by a large group of business owners and entrepreneurs. At the end of a big day of business content, Kiki was a real breath of fresh air. As soon as she took to the stage the entire energy of the room changed and it quickly devolved into a riotously irreverent and entirely uninhibited atmosphere. Kiki’s performance was a prelude to an evening networking event, so her ability to lighten the mood for the evening allowed our delegates to move seamlessly into the social environment where they build their vital partnerships. It was a genius performance where Kiki’s ability to read and respond to the room was matched only by her razor sharp wit in doing so. I would highly recommend booking Kiki as a headline act for your next event.” David Dugan (ELITE500 Mastermind)

“I have worked with Laughter House Entertainment on many occasions over the last ten years and I have nothing but praise for their professionalism, passionate performances and unique range of acts. From my experience when you work with Laughter House you should expect nothing but the best!” - Ray White “You were the talk of the regatta. We have had plenty of people perform at our events and dinners but no one has ever raised such an overwhelmingly positive reactions as you! I have had emails coming in saying how wonderful you were and how excellent the interview was and how it was the best regatta dinner they have ever been too!” - Sailability NSW
