Laugh out loud as comics arrive

SOME of the world's funniest people will ply their trade on Ipswich audiences next Tuesday, May 21.

Australian performer Claire Hooper, as well as Tommy Dean, Asher Treleaven, Tommy Little and Nazeem Hussein, are part of the contingent on board the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow.

Ipswich City Council arts spokesman Cr Charlie Pisasale said the comedians included the Civic Centre on the list of 90 performances at 65 towns across the country.

"Headlining is comedian Claire Hooper, who is best known for her role as team captain on Good News Week. Comedy fans will love her wonderfully inventive, skilful and engaging stage show," Cr Pisasale said.

Cr Pisasale said MC Asher Treleaven's blend of physical comedy, stand up and burgeoning sense of socio-political satire had made him one of the most interesting comics working in Australia, and Tommy Dean's genial manner, pin-sharp banter and vast stock of hilarious routines would impress any audience.

"This is one show you will definitely not want to miss, with talented comedians ready to impress with their best comedic routines," Cr Pisasale said.

"Laughter is contagious and also good for you.

"The chuckles will definitely give your stomach muscles a good workout."
