Jonny Haselam's pleasing mix of music and comedy leaves every audience doubled over— very few combine perfect comedic timing with tangible musical ability, but Jonny Haselam does and brings the heat.
He’s a Gold Coast local who has been destroying audiences and making waves; and a Queensland RAW Comedy Finalist who can be seen regularly smashing gigs around Queensland.
Australian Muay Thai Champion, stand-up comedian, and chronic overachiever, Lorna Bremner is one of the most exciting (and terrifying) new voices in the Queensland comedy scene. When she isn’t kicking people in the teeth for her day job, she’s writing about herself in the third person and yelling jokes over the dings of pokie machines in taverns across the state.
She was a 2020 RAW Comedy State Finalist and has performed her special brand of charming idiocy spliced with (frankly, too much) obscenity across Australia - and America too - including the iconic Comedy Works in Denver, Colorado. She has also received development funding from Screen Queensland to produce a proof-of-concept for her comedy web series, “apps”, and she is a co-producer on the mayhem that is The Dusty Rich Comedy Circus.
It may be a dangerous world we live in, sure, but Lorna believes that the real danger is inside our heads; besides comedy, Muay Thai, and video production, her real passion is in raising awareness about how mental we all accidentally are.
Codie Grimsey’s dry, deadpan styled humour has captivated literally tens of people all over the north Brisbane region. His awkward stage presence has been likened to a tall Luke McGregor. He made it through to the Queensland State Final in the 2020 RAW Comedy competition in his first ever attempt, so that’s something.
Born and raised in India, Sandeep Totlani is a pizza eating competition winner and a trained dentist (because some stereotypes are good). Sandeep discovered Stand-up comedy by accident when he watched Russell Peters on YouTube and entered Australia’s prestigious RAW comedy competition while on a student visa. Since then, he has fallen in love with all things funny and been a regular at Australian Comedy venues.
Juggling between the Indian and Western culture, Sandeep has performed comedy in 3 languages on some of the biggest stages across Australia and India supporting big time local and international acts like Danny Bhoy, Zakir Khan, Damien Power, Matt Okine, Becky Lucas, Ivan Aristeguieta, Atul Khatri and Jeeveshu Ahluwalia to name-drop a few. His perspective is fresh, stage persona likeable and style of comedy, both intriguing and hilarious.

“Lovely bloke” Weekend Notes
BJ Connolly loves using his comedy as a platform to inspire other people on the autism spectrum to become more confident. He loves making jokes about all the all the awkward social encounters he experienced during his childhood, whilst attempting to develop his social skills and better understand the neurotypical world.
His comedy performances are always very eccentric and super high energy. He loves dancing around on stage and blowing kisses at the crowd.
BJ also hasn’t had a wank for four years and he is extremely popular with girls who have borderline personality disorder. He used to identify as asexual but in 2020 he finally came out as STRAIGHT.
His proudest comedy moments to date include qualifying for the Queensland State Grand Final of RAW Comedy in 2020 and hosting a comedy show in Lismore, NSW which featured Aussie comedy legend Steady Eddy as the headliner.
BJ also has a reality dating show on YouTube called “Third-Wheeling With BJ” where he organises for a random guy and a girl to go on a date and acts as their wingman, offering his most outrageous relationship advice from an autistic perspective.
2022 is set to be a big year for BJ as he plans to start releasing original music on streaming platforms as he aspires to become Australia’s biggest comedy-popstar!
