Yianni Agisilaou: Teaching A Robot To Love
Casa Mondo @ The Pleasure Garden: 6-11 February

James Nokise: Talk A Big Game 
The Palace Society @ Globe Palace: 6 – 11 February 
James has spent the last few years performing biting political satire, then Brexit happened, then Trumpocalypse happened. So this year it’s jokes on sports, the ANZAC’s favourite pastime! If Clive Palmer can quit politics, then so can James. From Cricket controversies to running against Kiwi Olympians, and stealing other Olympians shoes. He’ll theorise as to why NBA is the end of the All Blacks; how the Wallabies can save Australian sport, why he’d rather take on Johnathon Thurston than Sharon Layton; and why Gary Ablett may be Jesus. He’s talking World Cups, World Champions, but no world events. May contain traces of politics.
The Stevenson Experience: Spot The Difference
Cabaret Bar @ Rosie O’Grady: 13 – 25 February 
FRINGE WORLD Best Comedy Award Nominees, 2015, 2016, Runner-Up 2017.
A new show of uproarious musical comedy from Australia’s favourite bickering identical twins. Settle in for hilarious songs that have seen them compared to Flight of The Choncords, Tim Minchin Bo Burnham, mixed with their trademark sibling rivalry banter. In 2017 the Stevensons swept the world, selling out entire seasons everywhere from the Melbourne Comedy Festival to Edinburgh Fringe and picking up a Best Comedy Nomination for the third year in a row at FRINGE WORLD. After all that, you’d think they’d have started to get along. You’d be wrong.
Rose Callaghan returns to Perth to debut her new show No Way Rosé.

Callaghan is really making a name for herself, mostly with security guards, but also in comedy, being described by Pedestrian as “one of the best up and coming comics Melbourne has to offer”, winning Best Comedy at Sydney Fringe for her debut solo show, selling out festivals across Australia and receiving rave reviews.

Simon Taylor: Happy Times

The Delux @ The Pleasure Garden: 4 – 9 February
