Peter Berner – Headliner
Peter Berner is without a doubt one of Australia’s most popular and respected comics and broadcasters, having performed his unique brand of comedy across Australia for nearly three decades and hosted iconic television shows and radio programs.
Peter started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1988 and has performed at various prestigious festivals, including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Sydney Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Comedy Festival and Just For Laughs – just to name a few.
His intelligent humour has always set him apart as a performer who can comfortably straddle comedy styles as disparate as satire, observational comedy and reactive comedy with easy.
Peter’s major TV hosting roles have been Backberner (1999-2002, ABC TV), The Australian Film Institute Awards (2004), The Einstein Factor (2004-2009, ABC TV), The Loaded Brush (2009, ABC TV), You Have Been Watching (2011, The Comedy Channel) and The B Team with Peter Berner (2016-2017, Sky News Live). All up he has presented more than 500 hours of national television program content in varying genres including comedy, news and documentary in live and taped environments.
On FM radio, Peter has been the breakfast co-host of Triple M’s The Cage (2007), which was networked live each day along the east coast, and has also hosted his own solo radio show, The Peter Berner Experiment (2008-2009), on Triple M. On AM radio he has hosted weekend afternoons on 2UE (2012).
Christian Elderfield – MC
The ridiculously talented Christian Elderfield is a UK comic whose electric stage presence and astute wit has thrilled audiences since he started comedy in 2011.
Having grown up in a small English village and discovering that his parents were cousin’s Christian decided to move away before the marriage proposals from family members started rolling in.
Christian is a very accomplished comedian with 4 Edinburgh festivals under his belt, 2 Adelaide Fringes, one Perth Fringe, and also an appearance on Britain’s Got Talent where he received 4 yes’s from the judges. He also runs a very successful monthly comedy night at The Quarrymans Hotel in Pyrmont, Sydney.
His stand up is a mix of wonderfully punchy storytelling, clever observations and a happy-go-lucky stage persona and this has got him through to many UK comedy competition finals including Comedy Cafe’s New act of the Year, Bath New Act of the Year, The London Comedy Store’s King Gong and the Golden Jester.
Christian has now settled in Sydney and is making waves on the comedy scene having hosted, headlined and featured at a number of established venues. The only thing lacking from this comedian’s repertoire is a valid visa.
