Merrick Watts, Akmal, Peter Hellier, Tom Ballard, Sam Simmons and Charlie Pickering. I really don’t have to say anything more than that but since it is my job to fill this space, I will say this will be a night of pure pain. Stomach pains from pulling your muscles laughing. Watts made a few phone calls and gathered some of his funniest mates to raise funds for Australian Defense Force families. Comedy All Stars is an exclusive one-night only event so click away or make that phone call to bag those tickets for an evening of knee slapping laughs with some of the country’s most popular acts in comedy today.
