Laugh Up A Storm At The Grand

Prepare yourself for a hilarious night when three great Australian comedy acts The Nelson Twins, John Burgess and Richard Marks come to the Grand Hotel in Frankston on Tuesday, January 14. The Nelson Twins, aka. Justin and Chris, have a down to earth, cheeky humour which audiences can’t resist, and one which saw them catapulted into the Grand Final of Australia’s Got Talent in 2012. Although they didn’t win the show, they certainly won a place in many Australian’s hearts with their matching beards, hair styles and yellow Australia jumpers worn on the show and now being worn everywhere from their comedy gigs, to the beach and shopping centers.

The two certainly take being identical to the next level! Just look them up on YouTube and these bearded twins will have you laughing in no time with cracking one liners – often at each other’s expense. Fellow comedian Jeff Green can vouch for their talent. “These fellas are destined to be household names – they’ve got wit, intelligence and fantastic comic timing. I hate them,” he says.

The Nelson Twins, who hail from rural New South Wales, are rising stars on the international scene as well, performing their show to sold out audiences in Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival. The multi-talented twins have also created a curriculum-based program, which they perform for secondary schools and they also do corporate gigs so you can be sure their performance will have something for everyone.

They will appear at the monthly Grand Hotel comedy night alongside John Burgess, otherwise known as ‘Burgo’ or ‘Baby John’. Burgess became a household name as host of popular TV shows Wheel of Fortune and Burgo’s Catchphrase, now lighting up the airwaves in the breakfast slot on Perth radio station 6IX, as well as performing comedy gigs.

As if the night weren’t hilarious enough, Richard Marks has been a regular on the Melbourne comedy scene for more than eight years having performed all over the country, and will appear alongside the twins and Burgess. In 2004, Marks became the first Victorian to win the national comedy competition ‘Green Faces’, hailed as Australia’s best new comedian.

The Grand Hotel comedy nights are held in the recently renovated Grand Lounge, so make sure to come along January’s installment, set to once again be a hilarious night with three quality acts.
