One event on Sat 13 February 2021, at 6:45 pm

UPDATE: This week we got the news from Cal Wilsons management that she has had to postpone her Orange shows due to personal circumstances beyond her control. I have been assured she will return in 2021 and those who rebook for that show who have tickets to this show will receive a token of appreciation from us for your understanding and support.
In the meantime we have reached out and are very excited to announce that Bev Kilick will be stepping in to fill in for Cal. Dilruk has messaged us and let us know that he is pumped for the Orange gigs.


We finished 2020 with Chopper & Randy, so to bookend that big show we take it up one more gear and bring you Dilruk Jayasinha & Cal Wilson to start 2021 in style.

It’s because you keep turning up Orange that we can continue to bring you these big names.

Hailing from Sri Lanka, Dilruk Jayasinha moved to Melbourne to attend university. Having completed a degree in accounting, he started working for one of the “Big Four.” However, after performing at an open mic night in 2010, that all changed…

Dil is now one of the most in demand headliners on the Australian comedy scene, with a reputation for consistently nailing his shows with his positive, upbeat brand of stand-up. Dilruk recently appeared in the sixth series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Australia and has recorded a stand up special for Amazon Prime which was released globally in 2020.

Cal Wilson came across the Tasman in 2003 and has gone on to become one of our most popular comedians, a perennial favourite on television shows such as Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Thank God You’re Here, and more recently Have You Been Paying Attention? and Hughesy We Have a Problem. Her stand up shows are as engaging as they are hilarious, often bringing the audience’s stories to life alongside her own.

As with last time we are doing our nights a little differently to keep our customers and staff safe during COVID.

The COVID Comedy show format will have the following restrictions enforced:

  • 30 tickets per show ($55pp which will include Canapés & Show – No Sit Down Dinner)
  • Check in required via QR code at Venue prior to being seated
  • Two Comedy sessions to choose from on either night (6.45pm OR 8.45pm – Both shows will be 90 mins with a quick 10 min toilet & drinks break and each comedian will be doing a 40 min set)
  • Alcohol can be purchased prior to show and at the short break but can only be consumed on premises and during the show
  • Once show is finished we ask that you leave as soon as you are able

The above requirements are all in accordance with Health Guidelines provided by the NSW Government.

If you are not feeling well on the day please stay home and we can refund your ticket.
If you arrive at the show showing any symptoms we will be giving you a temperature check and if you are above 37.2 degrees we will have to send you home.

If you have survived all that, it’s time to book your tickets before they get snapped up.
