Presented by Ipswich Civic Centre

 

MC comedian Anthony Lamond, brings comedy to Ipswich in the monthly Stitch in the ‘swich series.

May’s session welcomes The Nelson Twins, Ting Lim and Jessie Morwood.

 

The Nelson Twins are one of the most unique stand-up comedy acts in the world. Raised in the rural New South Wales town of Walbundrie, they have been performing as a duo for the past 13 years. The twins have fast become one of the most sought-after double acts in Australia, dazzling corporate and club crowds alike with their cheeky humour. Their big bush ranger beards and cracking one liner jokes are just a part of an amazing act never before seen on the comedy circuit. The boys are constantly bickering amongst themselves on stage and are never afraid to tackle a comment from an audience member. The Nelson Twins’ TV credits include; Britain’s Got Talent The Champions, Australia’s Got Talent, The Footy Show, Australian IQ Test, Insight, Before the Game, The Project, National Geographic’s How To Win At Everything and a host of TV commercials. In addition, the twins are regular guests on local radio stations offering their opinions on a range of topics from sibling rivalry to the war in Afghanistan.

 

Ting Lim is a io Singaporean-born beloved favourite on the Brisbane comedy scene. Her dark wit, cutting humour and distinctive style have made her a rising star in Australian comedy. Bursting onto the scene, she was handpicked to represent Queensland in the prestigious Melbourne International RAW national comedy finals in 2011. Her momentum never faltered and she, once again, represented her adopted home state in the coveted Green Faces national competition in the very same year. She quickly became a regular at the Sit Down Comedy Club with performances across Australia, Singapore and New York. Ting’s comedy has taken her from her native Singapore to outback Queensland performing for drought-stricken communities, to opening for stars like Beth Stelling, Demetri Martin, and sharing the stage with Jimeoin and many more. Ting is the director of a boutique production company called Hot Swag Productions that produces monthly comedy shows in Brisbane. She also co-founded Hot Mess Comedy with Sandeep Totlani, a competition game show that combines the best of both worlds, improv and comedy. In her spare time, she writes and films sketches with Ashwin Segkar and Aaron Pratt as part of a comedy sketch group called “Ting and the Beta Males”.

Jessie Morwood was a boring, shy, 1960s model Australian housewife. Rudely thrown out into the wider world at the age of 35, Jessie segued into radio announcing, gender researching, and university-ing (and dancing like an elephant with various rather desperate dance troupes). She’s since dropped more than her apron to dip her toes into the comedy arena – if nothing else it should be a fun ride.
