Deadly belly-aching laughs

FOUR of the brightest comedy stars under the Milky Way are on their way to Coffs Harbour.

The all-original Aboriginal Comedy Allstars showcase will be at the Jetty Memorial Theatre for one night only on Wednesday, March 2.

Jetty Memorial Theatre manager David Brammah said it was exciting to have some of freshest and funniest stand-up around, heading to the theatre.

"We look forward to a night of gut-busting laughter," David said.

The Aboriginal Comedy Allstars are cheeky, playful, irreverent, and hilarious.

An utterly unique comedy experience - great, big belly laughs from the heart of the wide, brown land. It doesn't get more Aussie.

The line-up features Matt Ford, Shiralee Hood, Kevin Kropinyeri and Dane Simpson.

Matt Ford is one of a group of exciting young talents rapidly establishing themselves as the next generation of Australian stand-up.

Matt has worked with the likes of Doug Stanhope, Tom Gleeson and Tom Ballard.

Shiralee Hood has survived the Canberra bushfires, lived next to the Tent Embassy's sacred fire outside Parliament House in Canberra and had her front teeth knocked out swinging on a Hill's Hoist (which is about as Aussie as it gets).

Kevin Kropinyeri is Australia's premier Aboriginal comedy star, a high energy whirlwind who will have you holding your sides laughing, as he shares tales of growing up, marriage and the particular, absurd challenges of life as an Aboriginal Australian family man.

Dane Simpson's cheeky online sketches such as Chips and Devon are making this bright talent a hit on Facebook.

Dane has been running a regular comedy club in his hometown of Wagga Wagga since last year.

To secure your seat at the one-night only show of Aboriginal Comedy Allstars showcase get in early.
