Comedy: Ivan Aristeguieta & Chopper

Sat 24 August at 6:00 pm


Two headliner high profile comedians!

As ‘Chopper’, Heath Franklin is an Australian cultural and comedy icon. With his own TV show, four live comedy specials, 2 ARIA nominations, 1 Logie nomination and over 500,000 tickets sold worldwide, Chopper has nearly done it all.

The man behind the tatts and ‘stache, Heath Franklin, is an Australian actor, comedic performer, improviser and writer. He is currently working on new TV and stage projects, and is a highly sought after corporate event speaker.

Ivan Aristeguieta has been winning over Australia with his vibrant, energetic brand of comedy since immigrating from Venezuela a decade ago. He has gathered a mass of fans for his trademark cheerful and naive rejoicing in the troubles and joys of living in the lucky country.

You may have seen me on the telly or online, performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala (2016-2022), as well as the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, or as guest
panelist on shows including Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Project, The Weekly, Hughesy, We Have A Problem and The Living Room.
