With over 100K fans on facebook and video views clocking more than 12M online you’d be hard pressed labelling Aaron “Gocsy” Gocs as underground.
Known for subverting the traditional means of finding an audience Aaron reaches an average of 50K people a week through facebook alone and has cleverly managed to tap into the social zeitgeist through his videos like Classic Stitch Up (2.7M views) and Simpson’s Impressions (2.2M views).
Aarons’ online success with his popular Ocean Girl video saw him commissioned by Comedy Central to create a digital series, the aptly titled, “Gocsy’s Classics”.
In which he brought back the 90’s by re-imagining some of the classic TV shows that we all thought we knew and loved.
Aaron has worked with VICE and Triple J and has firmly embedded himself into the consciousness of the youth culture in Australia with more than 90% of his fans being based throughout the country.
He’s in demand with musicians and has opened for Australian hip hop outfits Spit Syndicate as well as featuring in the indie rock stars, Last Dinosaurs film clip and playing at Violent Soho’s massive Brisbane Christmas party.
A celebrated stand-up comedian, Aaron has spent years honing the craft and is a confident performer on stage with a unique, individual style.
Aaron also acts and plays a role in the up- coming feature film, The Merger as well as ABC’s Ronny Chieng International Student.
Ben is an Ipswich local. He works for a giant corporate behemoth by day, and tries desperately to run an efficient and peaceful household at all other times. The struggle is real.
A husband, parent and craft beer enthusiast, he will bore you with stories about why IPA is called IPA, what IBU means, and the merits of various strangely named hops varieties. His favourite colour is chatruese.
Joshua Karnovsky aka Mr K, an Ipswich resident with a wife and 2 designer dogs is a year 1 teacher and the only jewish man in Ipswich (as far as he knows).
Josh discovered that stand up comedy audiences and 6 year olds have a similar sense of humour so thought it was worth a shot.
