She has performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. She is a broadcaster on Edge Radio in Hobart as co-host of Film Central. Coming out 5 years ago to friends and family has freed her up to not only find her true self but also has given her stand up a unique point of view and a voice with which to tell it.

Kerri & Gabe – These women are bold and blue. Inquisitive, explicit and very, very funny.
They trample the boundaries of politeness and fiercely safeguard the obligations of friendship. They ask the big questions with not an answer in sight.
Their story spans 40 years of life and friendship and choices. Featuring Gabe Adkins of Rosehaven, Water Rats and Home and Away.
And Kerri Gay of The Gloaming, winner of Best Actress 2019, Tasmanian Theatre Awards and RAW Comedy State Finalist.
Russell Redmond – The guy who runs the Launceston Memes page that has been aptly described as having “a degree of humour about it” by the Premier Peter ‘Papi’ Gutwein. Russell is as handy with a mic as he is with a meme. A modern renaissance man, he started doing stand up in Launceston and is now a regular face in Tasmanian comedy, supporting some of the best comedians in the country
Mick Davies – Mick is an actor and comedian who has been performing his energetic brand of stand up and sketch comedy for over 10 years. Performing with a who’s who of Australian comedy including Dave Hughes, Fiona O’Loughlan, Luke McGregor, Celia Pacquola, Charlie Pickering and Sam Simmons at various galas and festivals.

Amanda Bergmann – Amanda didn’t really want to become a comedian, she just needed an excuse to get away from the kids for a bit, and mixed netball isn’t really her bag. Holding down the fort with two kids, two dogs, four chickens, two rats and countless visiting headlice, her life is far from simple. Lamenting the fact she used to be “cool”, she woke up one day in the suburbs amongst the mayhem of family and realized cool is how you carve it.
Navigating motherhood and working life is a trip – not quite like a holiday, more like bad acid. Stumbling her way through, she’s found the only way to cope is by making light of it and having a laugh. With tales of piss poor parenting and a lamentable love life she hopes you’ll laugh along. And if it does bring you to tears, that’s ok – she’s always got a spare Kleenex tucked in her bra
