Mike Goldstein – MC
American born, Mike Goldstein isn’t in Kansas anymore. Sydney first, then Perth, and now Melbourne, the part Christian, part Jewish, with a dash of Sri Lankan (Yep! You read right!), has been doing stand-up comedy for the past decade and Aussie audiences are loving him. With regular appearances on Nine Network’s comedy series The Hundred with Andy Lee, ABC’s Tonightly with Tom Ballard, Nine Network’s The Pulse and Network Ten’s Hughesy We Have A Problem Mike is also the host of one of Australia’s most successful comedy podcasts, The Phone Hacks.
Say 'Hola' to Australia’s newest Aussie – Ivan Aristeguieta. This happy immigrant has just become one of us – crikey amigo! Now that he's added another passport to his citizenship collection, he doesn't know who the hell is he! Venezuelan is for dancing, Spanish is for cooking and Australian is for... giving it a red-hot go. Direct from his latest Paramount+ TV special, Ivan is one of the rising stars of Aussie comedy.
Lizzy’s at life’s half-time mark statistically, and it’s time to bring out the oranges for a mid-game pep talk. Everybody take a knee… Should she live life like each day is her last? Or like she has 16,000 days more to go? Big questions! Lizzy only started doing stand-up in 2017, originally as a way to gain more self-confidence. Safe to say it worked out pretty well. She quickly found herself an NSW State Finalist in the national RAW Comedy competition. The very next year she was invited to perform at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival at the Sydney Opera House, with her spot broadcast on Network Ten and Foxtel’s Comedy Channel.
