On Friday 8 March Diggers are bringing two of Australia’s finest and most in demand comedians, Tom Ballard and Luke McGregor are coming to Port Stephens.

Together, Tom Ballard and Luke McGregor will be the hottest ticket in town this autumn with an unmissable evening of back-to-back performances by two of Australia’s biggest names in comedy.

Luke McGregor is well known to Australian audiences as one half of the formidable team that brings Rosehaven to ABC TV.

The show is one of the national broadcaster’s most successful comedy series in recent years.

The Age review demonstrates an appreciation for the simplicity of McGregor’s wit , “There are plenty of comedians with swagger out there, but at the moment McGregor has something better — honesty”

Some say he is most famous for his awkwardness on stage but that is what we all know and love him for.

Tom Ballard is one of Australian comedy’s most consistent over achievers.

Time Out Sydney describes Ballard’s material as,”It’s tightly paced, it’s perfectly delivered and it’s funny as hell.”

For most of 2018 he was enjoyed being the host of the ABC’s Tonightly with Tom Ballard, which was a very cool and popular show that pushed the boundaries.

Now, with his freed up schedule Tom is back making guest appearances on TV, telling jokes and bringing audiences the gift of laughter.

The stage is set for a hilarious night out, so don’t miss out on this evening of laughter with friends.

Tickets are available now through Nelson Bay Diggers.
