Laugh Your Pants Off at Jupiters Hotel & Casino
This June Long Weekend
Kick start the long weekend in cracking style at Jupiters Hotel & Casino with the largest bill of comedians yet secured for the fourth instalment in the property’s hit Laugh Your Pants Off series.
On Friday June 6, the Jupiters Theatre spotlight will be on comedy masters Tom Gleeson, Denise Scott, Rusty and Another Guy, and Sammy J and Randy for one night only. Warming the stage will be Canada’s Marty Putz, Triple J’s Matt O’Kine, Aussie jokers Paul Brasch, Fiona McGary and Bev Killick, and hosted by popular local, Lindsay Webb.
Jupiters Hotel & Casino’s Managing Director, Aaron Gomes, said bringing together some of the best names in comedy for the ultimate mash-up of non-stop laughs, has proved a simple yet incredibly successful formula for the property.
“We have set the bar high with sell-out hit after sell-out hit in our Laugh Your Pants Off series and securing such a large and impressive line-up of comic stars like this, will no doubt keep audiences wanting even more,” Mr Gomes said.
Hailed the comedians’ comedian, Tom Gleeson has performed at all three major comedy festivals in Melbourne, Edinburgh and Montreal, as well as the invite-only Kilkenny Comedy Festival in Ireland. The killer comic has spread his infectious wit across every capital city in Australia, as well as London, Dublin, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta and entertaining the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Along with a string of appearances on hit TV shows including The Project, Good News Week and Thank God You’re Here, Gleeson has been nominated for a Helpmann Award twice and won the Piece of Wood Comedian’s Choice Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Denise Scott has been honing her acting and comedic craft for more than three decades, most recently taking out the prestigious Barry Award for most outstanding show of the 2014 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, ‘Mother Bare’.
The last six years have seen the veteran performer at the top of her game, selling out theatres, scoring regular gigs on high-rating national TV shows and watching her two books head for best seller status. She remains a favourite on the silver screen with an impressive record of appearances on hits including Spicks and Specks, The Project, Talkin’ ‘bout Your Generation and drama series Winners & Losers.
After 20 years as half of highly sought after musical comedy duo, The Scared Weird Little Guys, Rusty Berther continues the musical hijinks and slick silliness teaming up with Mike McLeish in Rusty and Another Guy.
“The Scaredies” enjoyed an incredible career of over 4,500 shows worldwide at festivals, comedy clubs, theatres, universities, corporate events and on TV and radio. And Rusty and Another Guy is now keeping the tradition alive of high energy musical skill and heavenly harmonies, blended with quick witted improvisation and song parodies.
Combining catchy tunes with chaotic tomfoolery and outbursts of filth, Sammy J and Randy have an uncanny knack of charming the pants off everyone they meet. The unconventional duo has played to sold out houses at The Sydney Opera House and the Edinburgh Fringe and closed the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Gala.
In 2010 Sammy J and Randy won Australia’s most coveted comedy award, The Barry, for their one-man/one-puppet show, ‘Sammy J and Randy in Ricketts Lane’, before taking their immaculate comic timing around the globe with shows ‘Bin Night’ in 2011 and ‘The Inheritance’ in 2012.
