”THE INAUGURAL EVENING OF APRIL FOOLISHNESS FEATURING DAVE EASTGATE, AARON GOCS, MICHELLE AZEVEDO AND VELVET WINTER’
 
April Fools day, a veritable minefield of whoopee cushions and fake pregnancy announcements. A day that is usually dreaded by all but the most dedicated of pranksters is about to get an image overhaul with the announcement of Triffid Comedy, the Triffid’s first annual April Fools comedy event.Take some of the most promising established and up-and-coming comedians that Brisbane has to offer, shake them up with all the delights that The Triffid has to offer and you’ve got one outstanding comedian’s Halloween.
 
Dave Eastgate is an actor, stand-up comedian, writer and musician who lives in Sydney, Australia and is one of the stars of Channel 9’s brand new drama series, Doctor Doctor, airing in late 2016.  
In 2015, Dave starred alongside his comedy idols, Glenn Robbins, Magda Szubanski, Gina Riley & Jane Turner in the Comedy Channel’s flag ship, sketch comedy series, Open Slather. The series ran for 20 episodes and featured Dave in sketches alongside, UFC Champ Ronda Rousey & Grammy Award Winner, Sting.
Other credits include the multi-award winning ABC comedy series, A Moody Xmas & it’s sequel, The Moody’s, as well as Maximum Choppage, Soul Mates, Ronnie Cheing: International Student and Channel 9’s smash hit comedy Here Come The Habibs.
 
Dave will be joined by Aaron Gocs, a multi time Queensland finalist of the prestigious RAW Comedy, also known as the guy who went viral for having cornrows and eating corn while listening to Korn. Rounding off this stellar line up is young upstart Michelle Azevedo who is fresh off a successful run of shows at the Brisbane Fringe Festival.
 
The role of lead fool and MC for the night will be played by up-and-comer Velvet Winter, a Class Clowns national finalist and RAW comedy Queensland finalist.
 
Ten times more funny than an exploding cake and with half the clean up, Triffid Comedy promises to be the best annual reprieve from unwanted pranks for years to come. It would be April Foolish to miss this one!
