FUNNY MUMMIES COMEDY GALA

By Jenny Wynter

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

Four hilarious Mamas. One Rocking Show.

Jump aboard the life-raft of laughter with award-winning comedian and mother of six, Jenny Wynter, for a smashing evening of comedy.

Launched with a mission to improve mothers’ mental health through laughter, Wynter has assembled some of Australia’s funniest comedians who also happen to have birthed loin fruit.

Joined by Kat Davidson, Bron Lewis and Jo Gowda, it’s tales of epic mothering fails, the crap parts of parenthood, and ever-relatable domestic dramas in two hours of comedic relief.

You’ll cackle, you’ll shriek, you’ll make like Patrick Swayze and have the time of your life.

Kat Davidson
Seeing Kat on stage is like visiting an old friend you haven’t met yet. She’s shared the stage with the world’s best comics (Stephen K Amos, Steven Wright, Dave Hughes to shamelessly name drop a few), tamed a shed full of drunk miners, kept a 17 year marriage off the rocks and is currently being parented by her five year old. She can be heard regularly across Queensland ABC radio and has headlined the best clubs in Australia and Canada. She is also the co-producer of the highly successful Ladies Comedy Nights in Brisbane, can regularly be found at sea performing for huge crowds on P&O Cruise ships and enjoyed sell out seasons of her original show Untidy at the 2012 Brisbane Comedy Festival and husband and wife co-production He Said, She Said (with husband Stav Davidson) at Wonderland Festival.

Bron Lewis
Bron Lewis has recently escaped the bin-fire that is Melbourne, and has taken the Brisbane comedy scene by storm. A state finalist for Raw Comedy, and a four-time champion of The Moth Storytelling competition, Bron is a natural on the stage. Her passion for comedy is palpable, as is her sheer relief of having a night off mothering her three small kids. This woman will make you laugh – you can bet your bottom dollar on that.

Jo Gowda
Jo is an Indian born Australian stand up comic. As a RAW comedy finalist in 2019 and 2020, Jo will disarm you with her quick wit and cheeky sense of humour. Jo uses her humour to break barriers, shatter stereotypes and incite thought. you’ll find her humour relatable, amusing and sprinkled with dry wit. She describes herself as Australia’s second best import (after cricket of course).
