Comedy Artists’ Bios:

Isabella Roldan

While trying to become famous to impress her crush, Isabella stumbled into the world of stand-up comedy back in 2013. Since hunger-gaming it out in Melbourne as a National Finalist for the MICF’s RAW Comedy competition, Isabella made her television debut in the first season of the Tassie filmed comedy Rosehaven. She has supported the likes of Daniel Sloss, Nazeem Hussain, Sammy J and Rhys Nicholson, and recently performed at the inaugural Fringe at the Edge of the World with her show  F.M.L which was nominated for ‘Best Split Bill.’ Since stumbling upon the stage at just 16, the former class clowner has now cemented herself deep into the forest that is Tassie Comedy. Delighting audiences alongside her sassy demeanour and unapologetic stage presence, Isabella’s crush still has no idea who she is!


Stewart Bell

Daryl Braithwaite’s biggest fan, sh*t at growing facial hair, wanker – Stewart Bell has been described as all these things. All are true. He’s also performed with some of the biggest acts in the country, hosts Fresh Comedy every month, and has two full-length solo shows under his belt. In his spare time he likes playing with his pet Komodo Dragon, Neil Diamond and making up entirely fabricated facts to end his bio with.

Brodi Lucas

Brodi started his comedy career in Hobart Tasmania, competing in the RAW comedy competition where he made it to the state finals. Since then he’s had numerous gigs across Tasmania and performed his debut solo standup show, My Mum Thinks I’m Funny, at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2014. His jokes mainly consist of awkward and embarrassing stories of dating, with assistance from his mother, like any normal man in his mid 20s.


Brittany Szlezac

Brittany is a wanna be everyday Tassie hero…social worker by day, comedian by night. Brittany jumped head first into the comedy scene last year, landed somewhat gracefully, and now uses her powers for good, connecting with audiences and being a silly billy all over the state. In just one year she was invited to host a few events, support interstate acts and was the lead instigator of the inaugural state-wide Mental Health Week Comedy Road Show.


Chloe Black

Chloe began her stand-up career in Adelaide (at the famed Rhino Room) over 18 years ago. She was a Raw Comedy National Finalist in 2001 although she may have performed back then under another name. She has performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and also the Adelaide Fringe and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. She is a broadcaster on Edge Radio in Hobart as co-host of Film Central and her own show “It’s Always Midnight Somewhere”, which she says is a phantasmagorical mix tape of film-scores and punk rock, every Sunday night. Coming out 3 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.


Dylan Hesp

As seen on Sando on ABC TV, Jokers Comedy club and sketches with over a million views online, Dylan Hesp presents his repertoire of characters, sketches and stupidity specifically for your viewing pleasure and optional laughter
