By October 19, 2019 September 24th, 2021 No Comments

Emma Malik loves animals so much she trained them professionally for over a decade. That is until a drunken dare lead her to try stand-up comedy, a “one off” gig which turned into a career. Since then Emma has traveled the world delivering her unique stand-up.

Her solo show ‘ If You Can’t Train It, Eat It’ sold out at both the Sydney Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival and is now touring the country. Emma has been described as “dirty, yet oh so charming” and is known for her quick wit, audience interactions and high energy.

Described by many as the toughest woman in comedy, Julia Wilson tours the world with her dubious morals, having plenty of seriously dangerous fun along the way!

Julia doesn’t just take to the stage, she owns it. Her unique style of storytelling is delivered with such honesty and at a blisteringly energising pace that a shirt full of sore ribs is guaranteed!
