Brown’s Mart Theatre

Darwin’s first home for theatre and live performance


Top End Comedy are here to help you forget the humdrum of work and #firstworldproblems as you laugh it off!

Now in its 3rd big year, Laugh It Off – the Territory Pride Edition, is a showcase of some of the funniest comedians in Darwin. Homegrown and handpicked from a grueling audition process, it’s the best in Territory stand up! Intimate, honest, hilarious and bizarre… Laugh It Off is for purveyors of stand up comedy, story telling and clever wit.

Angus Robson (MC) – Angus Robson is Territory born and has been making people laugh since 2013. His unique take on life coupled with his quirky musical performances have entertained audiences all around the greater Darwin area. An audience member once said that he was “the funniest act I’ve seen all year” but that was in January and they might have thought he was someone else.

Ange Wu – Otherwise known as Won Ton Destruction, Ange is a full time cook as well as a fan of food, puns, and food-based puns. She is currently marking her sixth year as a Territorian, and has stopped telling people she’s from Melbourne, except when anyone insists on asking where she’s really from. Ange has previously joked about her poor life choices in places such as Brooklyn, Kuala Lumpur, and Adelaide.

Lady Heidi-Maree– Lady Heidi Maree enjoys short walks on the beach, sass and herself. She is the best friend you want to call to reassure that all your bad decisions weren’t so bad. She’ll make you laugh, she’ll make you scream, she’ll even accompany you to the clinic. Lady Heidi-Maree proves that you really can have it all; brains, beauty and bold humour.

Karen Martin-Stone – Archaeologist by day, comedian by night, Karen has been performing comedy, locally and interstate, since 2012. Quick-witted, sharp, subversive and hilarious, she’s also a fan of adjectives. Karen impresses audiences with her off-the-cuff, clever comedy that packs a punch.

Jackson Holt – Darwin Comedy Cup Winner (2016), Jackson Holt continues to leave his mark on the Darwin comedy scene. With his charming, laid back persona and his witty storytelling style of comedy, Jackson will lead you on a journey that inevitably ends with you in fits of laughter.

Jason Williams – NT Raw Comedy Winner (2017), Jason Williams mixes toilet, political and observational humour. A regular MC, trivia host and a bloke’s bloke, he owns three lawnmowers and has also appeared at Darwin and Adelaide Fringe festivals. (We might be kidding about the lawnmowers).
