Australia’s best comedians live every month at Mounties. Each show with new performers so you can tickle your funny bone each and every night!
Tommy Dean (USA) – Headliner
Raised in Arizona before moving to Australia in 1992, American stand-up star Tommy Dean occupies the top echelons of Australia’s headline comedy artists.
With his astute observational style and pleasantly soothing drawl, Tommy is consistently making him a standout favourite with theatre audiences, corporate clients, festival producers, TV and radio shows alike. His pin-sharp banter, genial manner and vast stock of hilarious routines with broad appeal, Tommy never fails to connect with and impress any audience.
Tommy’s impressive media CV includes appearances on Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Stand Up Australia, Rove Liveand The Sideshow as well as multiple appearances on Just For Laughs Sydney’s Stand-up Series and Australia: Live – filmed for the Comedy Channel at the Sydney Opera House. He was booked to perform to an empty Sydney Opera House during Sydney’s first lockdown in a very special streamed event, Humour Us.
With a career that has him consistently booked as the go-to audience warm-up for cerebral comedy TV shows; including the very popular QandA, Gruen Planet, Gruen Transfer and the Prime Minister’s Australian of the Year awards ceremony, Tommy has performed in the leading comedy clubs in the USA, New Zealand, Europe and South East Asia and is an in-demand headliner across the Australian live comedy circuit.
Tommy can be heard regularly on ABC 702 radio, where he is a frequent guest on Richard Glover’s Thank God It’s Friday drive show – and an unexpected temporary move back to the US in late 2019 saw Tommy sending in a weekly ‘Letter from America’ for the show, which has proven to be a huge hit with listeners who adore his knack for interweaving the foibles of his adopted Australia with the dark reality of his home country.
This affable, ageless American with the rock god long hair and booming deep drawl is loved by young and old – to watch him find the funny in the mundane along with the bizarre of our day-to-day existences is always an absolute joy.
“Smarts, skill and wit” – The Age
“A consummate master of timing” – Australian Stage
“Tommy Dean is awesome” – Foxtel
Daniel Townes – MC
Since emerging on the scene almost a decade ago as one of Australia’s hottest comedy prospects, Daniel Townes has rapidly made his name as one of the country’s best live comedians.
With his laid-back style of stand-up, Townes has won over audiences worldwide, having performed in Singapore, Germany, Spain, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, Holland, and all over the UK. In Australia, he’s worked everywhere from Mildura to Broken Hill and Griffith to Wodonga.
As well as being a regular at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Sydney Comedy Festival, Townes has also performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the prestigious invite-only Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.
“Top-mark laughs, clever call backs and acerbic social commentary. ★★★★” – Herald Sun
“It takes real talent to summarize all our shortcomings as a society and still entertain an audience. Luckily, Daniel Townes is a very talented comedian.” – The Music 2015
Danielle Walker – Feature
“I’m Danielle, I grew up in the rainforest eradicating feral pigs, swimming in creeks and foraging for wild raspberries. My grandad built a flying fox over a river, it was basically a hammock attached to a wire and you’d pull yourself over. I have a severe fear of heights, unrelated. Imho my Grandad is the coolest person in the world. My biggest regret in life is buying a hatstand, IT’S COVERED IN JUNK!! That’s an example of how relatable I can be.”
