Feature Comedian - Adam Rozenbachs
Support Comedian - Nick Penn
MC - Mandy Nolan
18+ Show

Adam Rozenbachs - stand up comedian, writer, broadcaster, actor, voice over artist - has steadily risen to become one of Australia's funniest and most consistent performers, writers and broadcasters.
"Think Jerry Seinfeld with a black heart." The Age
Adam has performed eight successful Melbourne International Comedy Festival Shows: Wrong Way, Keep Going; Traces of Nut; the sell-out Singledumb; Repressed Memory Lane; the critically acclaimed Singledumber; the sold out seasons of 2012’s The Good Stuff and 2013’s Eurodad [extra shows added], and the 2014 success about his alcohol free year, Breaking Booze.

“His best show yet! In less capable hands, the you-know-how and don't-you-hate-it-when gags would be a parade of lame observations. But Rozenbachs has a remarkable ability to laser in on the things we think but don't say - or are too embarrassed to admit we do - with a fresh, edgy perspective.” The Age, April 2011
