Christina Van Look – Feature Act

Christina Van Look burst onto the Sydney comedy scene more than a decade ago and continues to delight audiences from Melbourne, New York, London and Toongabbie.

Her humour varies from hilariously self-deprecating to bitingly sardonic but her punchlines are delivered with a relaxed smile that makes her a favourite wherever she performs. Christina is renowned for her rapid-fire jokes about celebrities (Kim K would sue if she could actually understand the joke), parenting as a competitive sport and why you need to visit a sex shop at least once in your life.
If she seems hilariously familiar, some of the many places you may have seen her perform include several famous New York comedy clubs, on Foxtel, or on one of many comedy cruises.Christina performed her first solo show ‘A Look Back’ at the 2019 Sydney Fringe Festival.  The show was nominated for ‘Best Comedy’ at the festival.Christina was joint runner-up at the 2019 Comedian of the Year competition.
“Christina Van Look is one terrifically funny woman. Nothing is as refreshing as a mother with a disdain for children.” – Rick Crom (Louis CK, Inside Amy Schumer)
“One of the funniest women in comedy.” – Mikey Robins (Good News Week)
“Rip-roaring show…warmth and impeccable timing…” – Weekend Notes
