Melbourne-based comedian currently living in her home town of Geelong and busting to get in front of the mic again.  Ellen gives her audiences a refreshing glimpse at life as a modern, single (slightly desperate) gal. Graduating from 'School of Hard Knocks Comedy" in Melbourne, she has been a regular contributor to the Melbourne comedy scene including Punchlines Comedy Club, Collection Bar and The Elwood Lounge.  She has featured on Kill Tony Melbourne PodCast, the world's number one for stand ups. 

Expect hilarious tales of dates, dogs and still living with your parents.


The first ever lawyer to become a comedian, Tess originally hails from Brighton, but now resides in Jan Juc, away from the Karens. In 2020, she performed her debut split bill stand up show “Corporate Social Irresponsibility” to a sold out crowd at Adelaide Fringe Festival, her performance described by HI Fi Way as “really intelligent comedy” and “a clever collaboration of comedic minds” with fellow comic Alex Keen. A regular performer at Melbourne’s best comedy clubs, Tess is a two time Moth StorySLAM champion. 

“Excited to get back on stage after an extended stint of zoom gigs.” 


Relatively new to Victoria, Alex moved down from Queensland and now does everything he can to pretend he’s not a basic QLD bro. He’s slotted right into the comedy scene, coming third in Melbourne International Comedy festivals “Comedy out west” competition, winning Bayside’s Got Talent and sharing the Stage with Tommy Little and Joel Creasy. After a sell-out run of shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Alex was on track to debut his show Corporate Social Irresponsibility with Tess Birch at 2020 Melbourne Comedy Festival.
