Both John and Rakhesh are ready to tell you about their hilarious experiences as foreigners in strange lands. Leave your inhibitions at the door and cut loose, as they take you on a no-holds-barred journey through tales of their travels, that have brought them from their birthplaces to settle on these shores!

Originally hailing from the north of England but having lived here for several years, John is now back in Australia. After leaving Melbourne in 2015 where he hosted 87.8 FM’s Retreating Laughs, John returned to the motherland to continue his stand-up career, where he performed at London’s Comedy Store, The Ram Jam Club and the Edinburgh Fringe among others!

Rakhesh (Channel Seven and the UK’s Channel Four and ITV One) is a Sri Lankan-born British comic living in Melbourne because he loves being an immigrant more than anything else in the world. He has only recently moved to Melbourne and is already making waves after cutting his teeth on the British scene, winning the Blackout at Up the Creek and Beat the Gong at The Arc in 2017.
