Chris is one of Australia’s premier comedy stars. He’s an Aussie bloke, a yobbo or a bogan, from his flannelette shirt to his double plugger thongs. His "Hoganesque" style of comedy appeals to every average Australian and touches on the delicate issues of beer, sport and relationships.   Chris started performing comedy in October 1997 and in just six months had won the prestigious Triple J Raw Comedy Award for Australia’s Best New Comedian. It didn’t take him long to rise to feature status. His accomplishments are outstanding and they include:   - National Winner - Triple J Raw Comedy Competition - Grand Finalist - National Green Faces Competition - Double Platinum sales for his hit single 'Bloke' - ARIA Nomination Best Comedy Release for 'Bloke' - ARIA Nomination for Highest Selling Single for 'Bloke' - ARIA Nomination Best Comedy Release for 'Mullet Head'   Chris has performed with such comedy legends as: Jimeoin, Steady Eddy, Garry Who, Carl Barron, Anh Do, Elliot Goblet, Raymond J. Bartholomew, Marty Fields, The Empty Pockets, Peter Rowsthorn, Bob Franklin, Ross Daniels, Stevie Starr, Mr Methane, and rock bands, The Angels, Rose Tattoo, The Screaming Jets, Yothu Yindi and The Radiators.   Chris’ first CD single was released through EMI Music Australia entitled Bloke. A hilarious send up of Meredith Brooks’ song Bitch, the song landed at Number 15 first week in and subsequently went to number one, achieving platinum sales exceeding 120,000 units.   Chris has released a further single which was nominated for Best Comedy Release entitled Mullet Head a parody of the hit single Gimme Head by The Radiators.   Chris’ first live DVD, Let Bogans Be Bogans, was filmed at The Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne to a sell out crowd.   David Tulk Having fallen in love with the entertainment industry, involving himself in acting roles with television programs such as “Neighbours” and more luxurious entertainment positions with “Opera Australia”, David Tulk knew he had what it takes to blast the comedy world with his witty, take no prisoners approach to the tricky joke telling trade that is stand up comedy. Immersing himself in the unruly world of stand up, Tulk quickly fell in love with the poetry of performance in front of the mic and making people gasp for air with laughter again and again. Various successful shows in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, 5-star reviews for his shows from the Edinburgh Comedy Festival and masses of appraisal Australia wide have only given Tulk the fuel he needed to continue firing off his hilarious observations of the world going on around him.  There is not a lot you can do to prepare yourself for the blows of laughter Tulk will deliver you, how ever, you can check out his Youtube videos “Some People Are Just Arseholes” which are sure to get you in the mood for more of this guy!
