Andrew Nason & Craig Quartermaine
Enjoy a night of PROFESSIONAL LIVE STAND UP COMEDY at The Sit Down Comedy Club!
Hosted by Fiona McGary, on Saturday 16th October, our headliners will be Andrew Nason & Craig Quartermaine!!
Andrew Nason propelled himself onto the Australian comedy scene in 1994. A former high school teacher, Andrew felt the relative quiet of a comedy club audience would be a welcome change from the various classrooms where he had been performing. With a keen wit and incisive style, he remains one of the most popular comedians on the SE Qld Comedy Circuit, both as a headline act and M.C. He has performed at all the major comedy venues in Australia, as well as venues in New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. He’s also very tall.
Unstimulated with a job driving trucks in the mining industry and a former life as an apprentice chef, Craig Quartermaine opted for a career change in his late twenties. Applying for and winning a broadcasting scholarship with ABC Radio set the proud Nyoongar man on a new path, from where he was selected to contribute to the second season of Australia’s first Indigenous sketch comedy show, ABC TV’s hugely popular Black Comedy. From here Craig went on to become the Western Australian correspondent for the National Indigenous Television network, NITV.
While his media career was burgeoning, Craig was quietly hitting the open mic rooms of Perth, developing a passion for stand-up comedy that quickly led to him making the national finals in Australia’s most prestigious comedy competition – triple j’s RAW Comedy at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Shortly after this milestone achievement Craig headed off to play London’s West End before making his triumphant Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut with the spectacularly-received Race Off, where he introduced the Australian race dynamic to the world. This set him on his way to a huge European tour and catching the eye of comedy heavyweights such as Hannibal Buress, Chris D’Elia, Nazeem Hussain and Jim Jefferies, all of whom have chosen Craig to open for them in packed out theatres and arenas across the country.
The accomplished journalist and TV writer is affectionately described by UK comedy bible The List as a ‘charming ball of rage’… don’t let the smile fool you and don’t let the laughs scare you.
