Jason “Rash” Rider
Over a period of more than a decade, Jason Ryder has amassed a huge catalogue of live comedy, film, television and radio credits.
In the live comedy arena, Jason is one of Australia’s most experienced performers as both a feature act and MC/ Host. He has featured in all of Australia’s top live comedy venues, at universities and in festivals such as the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He has also toured extensively throughout regional Australia and New Zealand, in addition to performances in London and New York. Since commencing live comedy, Jason has twice been nominated for a ‘Mo Comic Of The Year Award’ which puts him in the company of such names as Vince Sorrenti and Jimeoin.
On radio Jason has had his material appear nationally on Triple M and Today networks as part of the highly regarded ‘Home Grown Humour’ series, appeared as a guest on virtually every major metropolitan station and produced and performed his own radio show on the popular Bondi FM in Sydney.
Film and television have taken to Jason’s style, talent and appearance with well over 50 appearances on some of Australia’s most popular screen products. Despite this huge and demanding workload, jason has also found time to pen two books, ‘The A to Z of Lying’ & ‘The A to Z of the best jokes in the world’ (Pan McMillan), which have found sales both in Australia and the UK.
This vast catalogue of practical experience and career development has left Jason as one of the most useful and popular corporate humourists in Australia. His knockabout Aussie style and accessible material has won him fans in this most demanding area of entertainment.
Newcastle bred comedian Matty B is rising up the ranks of Australian comedy as he forges a reputation as a sharp joke writer and unique performer. In between releasing an album, performing at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival and The Adelaide Fringe Festival he is fast becoming a staple on the the national club circuit, headlining and hosting across the country. His most recent show, Flanno Worries received critical acclaim and has been described as ‘uniquely esoteric’ and ‘brilliant alternative art expertly performed
Since winning Australia’s premier comedy competition Green Faces in 2003, Brett has become a regular headline act on both the Sydney and National comedy circuits – club and corporate.
Brett has strutted his stuff on The Footy Show and The Comedy Channel’s Stand Up Australia, and has entertained Aussie and New Zealand troops in East Timor and the Solomon Islands.
A finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Brett’s versatility and ad-libbing excellence see him transfer every show into a night his audience will never forget! His mix of the ‘clever’ and the ‘rude’ will appeal to the yuppie and yobbo in everyone.
Brett has also worked as an Audience Warm-Up Comedian for Ready Steady Cook!, The NRL Footy Show, Top Gear Australia, Fox Sports’ The League Lounge and Gladiators.
Brett, along with his identical twin brother and partner in crime, Mark, is also an award-winning filmmaker and screenwriter. The twins’ short film Identical was a finalist in Tropfest 2016, while Washed Up, another short comedy, made competition’s shortlist in 2014. They were also runners up at the 2003 IF Awards, being nominated for Best Unproduced Screenplay, for their comedy feature film script Hodads.
Brett is also a fine dramatic actor. In 2014 he starred in The Comedian, a powerful 15 minute short drama directed by Brendan Donoghue, which screened at film festivals around the world, including the Melbourne Film Festival and Flickerfest, in 2015. It also won ‘Outstanding Short’ at the Short Sweet Film Fest in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
