Headline AL DEL BENE  (LA comedian of the year, Dane Cook tour support)

L.A. Comedy Awards’ Comedian of The Year, Al Del Bene started doing comedy in Boston at the age of 18. Upon moving to NYC, in 1998, he quickly became a staple of the underground comedy scene there.

After bleeding NY dry of every last joke about how miserable living there made him, Al moved to sunny L.A., in 2006, where he was a regular at The World Famous Laugh Factory on  the Sunset Strip. His TV appearances include Comics Unleashed, HBO’s Tourgasm, NESN Comedy All Stars and Jon Lovitz Presents.

Al has travelled to Kuwait and Iraq, with the U.S.O. to perform for the troops, and has also performed comedy & music for more than one hundred sold out Stadiums and Arenas as a featured act on Dane Cook’s Isolated Incident Tour.

Since March of 2014 Al & his hot wife & two (probably will be hot) children have been living in Sydney, Australia, where he has performed at The Sydney Opera House with Bill Burr and has appeared on The Comedy Channel, Network 10 and Just for Laughs.


American stand-up star Tommy Dean occupies the top echelons of Australia’s headline comedy artists.

If you have never seen Tommy Dean you are genuinely missing out on a master of the language comedy. We refer to him around here as the “Good Will Hunting” of comedy. He seems to see life as an enormous equation in front of him and solves it in an instant, with a mind bending laugh. With the unique edge of being an American who understands Australia!

Tommy’s astute, clean, observational comedic style consistently make him a stand out winner with theatre audiences, corporate clients, festival producers, TV and radio shows alike.

With pin sharp banter, genial manner, broad appeal and a vast stock of hilarious routines interweaving the foibles of his adopted home country with the dark reality of his home country Tommy never fails to connect with and impress any audience.

Tommy’s impressive media appearance CV includes Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Stand Up Australia, Rove Live, Joker Poker, Sunrise, The Today Show, and The Sideshow.
