The star-studded line-up includes Ivan Aristeguieta, Dilruk Jayasinha, Georgie Carroll, Andy Saunders, Joe White, and Ting Lim in a hilarious celebration of Australia’s multicultural diversity.

So, do your soul a favour and treat it to a night of laughter you’ll never forget. You probably need it.
