Comedians in Bars Drinking Beer



Comedian CJ Fortuna shares a beer with celebrated stand-up comedians and comedy actors in iconic bars. This web series is an informal one-on-one interview style inspired by Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'.


Whether it's Dave Hughes at the Vineyard or Bob Franklin at The King of Tonga, we invite you to pull up a bar stool and join these veterans as they chat about their strangest gigs, their worst heckles and what they've learned along the way.

Dave O’Neil has been in the business of comedy for over 20 years and is one of Australia’s most recognisable stand-up comics. Writer, radio presenter, actor, TV personality and pretend football supporter, Dave takes a seat at the Grandview Hotel in Fairfield.

From working class roots Dave Hughes has risen to become one of Australia’s most popular and successful stand-up comedians.  His iconic style thinly disguises one of the fastest comic minds this country has ever seen and it didn't slow down when he "shared" a beer with CJ at the Vineyard in St Kilda.





Hung Le is without a doubt Australia's tallest Vietnamese Comedian. He's an author, musician, clown, actor, all round song and dance man who doesn't mind a beer.





Known for his quick wit and caustic-style of comedy, Eddie Ifft has a habit of speaking first and then thinking, which gets him in trouble – a lot. 

Bob Franklin is a Hillingdon, London-born, Welsh raised, comedian who directs, writes books and performs sell out, stand-up comedy shows throughout the world.

Fiona O'Loughlin is one of the great Australian female stand-up comedians of our time. She has performed as a headline act in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe festival. 

Dave has been in the world of stand-up for this entire millennium and beyond. His comedy shows have famously included choreographed fight and dance scenes with Ninjas, Pirates, Zombies and Burlesque Dancers.
