The Funny Mummies™ Comedy Gala line-up typically consists of an MC, headliner and one or two support performers. Some of our regular performers include:
Jenny Wynter is a Brisbane-based writer, cabaret performer and comedian with over a decade of experience. Her work is characterised by her improvisational and musical stylings and combinations of both, with her trademark being comedy songs made up on the spot with audience input.
She trained in improvised comedy in North America, including with Ashley England, Second City, Loose Moose Theatre (Canada), Gary Austin, Artistic New Directions, Michael Pollock, Daena Giardella, Jason Kravits and North Coast Hip-Hop.
Jenny Wynter has performed in festivals and shows around the world.
She won the ABC iView Pitch Perfect Award for her web series concept “Viking Mama!” (based on her live show of the same name), Best Variety Show at United Solo Festival NYC, the Award for Excellence in Cabaret at Melbourne Fringe and is a Green Room Award nominee for Best Cabaret Writing.
Her debut web series “How Me Parent Good: And You Can Too!” won Best Conceptual Web Series at the Palm Springs International Comedy Festival, Best Web Series at the Worldwide Women Film Festival, and the AusMumpreneur Big Idea Award.
Carolyn Mandersloot’s comedy is like having a good biscuit and a cup of tea with your hilarious best friend. Only better.
She weaves together a narrative exploring the grand complexities and challenges of the human experience – birth, life, death, and parenting teenagers. Carolyn draws her experience of palliative care nursing to deftly hold a compassionate space in which audiences can laugh at the both the unthinkable and the undeniable.
Carolyn gives us a wholehearted opportunity to swallow a heaping dose of laughter as the best medicine in the contemplation of our own mortality. Quite literally, you will laugh until a little bit of wee comes out and she is quite ok with that.
Carolyn tours with the Funny Mummies Comedy Gala and as a facilitator for community Story Sharing Workshops delivered as part of Funny Mummies events.
Who has 20 years comedy experience, brilliant stories and keeps the laughs coming, no matter who is in the audience? This lady….
Seeing Kat on stage is like visiting an old friend you haven’t met yet. She’s shared the stage with the world’s best comics (Stephen K Amos, Steven Wright, Dave Hughes to shamelessly name drop a few), tamed a shed full of drunk miners, kept a 17-year marriage off the rocks and is currently being parented by her five-year-old.
Equally at home in a corporate venue or a room full of hens and bucks, Kat brings a fresh and intelligent view to her comedy. She tackles relationships, observations and random events with equal passion and her unique storytelling ability takes her audience along with her for the ride.
Kat has been a professional improviser since 1993, hosted Gala Events, coached blue chip companies in communication and worked a crowd from the back of a cattle truck. Occasionally, all at the same time!
She can be heard regularly across Queensland ABC radio and has headlined the best clubs in Australia and Canada. She is also the co-producer of the highly successful Ladies Comedy Nights in Brisbane, can regularly be found at sea performing for huge crowds on P&O Cruise ships and enjoyed sell out seasons of her original show Untidy at the 2012 Brisbane Comedy Festival and husband and wife co-production “He Said, She Said” (with husband Stav Davidson) at Wonderland Festival, venues around Brisbane and P&O ships since 2016.
She toured her debut solo comedy show “Swimming the Seas of Failure” to Canada at Loose Moose Theatre, Adelaide Fringe Festival and Bris Funny Fest to sold-out audiences.
Hailing from Canada, Jasmine has been a professional stand-up comedian for more than six years.
She has supported Fiona O’Loughlin, Danny Bhoy, Greg Fleet, Mel Buttle and more.
Jo is an Indian born Australian stand-up comic.
RAW comedy finalist in 2019 and 2020, Jo will disarm you with her quick wit and cheeky sense of humour.
She describes herself as Australia’s second-best import (after cricket of course).
Jo uses her humour to break barriers, shatter stereotypes and incite thought.
You’ll find her humour relatable, amusing and sprinkled with dry wit.
Bron Lewis has recently escaped the bin-fire that is Melbourne, and has taken the Brisbane comedy scene by storm.
Winner of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Raw Comedy Competition 2022, and a four-time champion of The Moth Storytelling competition, Bron is a natural on the stage.
Her passion for comedy is palpable, as is her sheer relief of having a night off mothering her three small kids.
This woman will make you laugh – you can bet your bottom dollar on that.
Lisa McKay (aka Mercedes DeLuca-Jones)
Lisa has performed in various venues nationally and internationally as a vocalist and standup comedian, including Brisbane Powerhouse, Brisbane Jazz Club and The Sitdown Comedy Club and sell out shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival with her comedy cabaret, “The Really Real Housewife of Surfers Paradise” as her alter ego Mercedes DeLuca-Jones.
Lisa regularly acts as Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer at charity and community events for clients including, Mosaic Festival for Multicultural Australia, Care Kits for Kids QLD and Project Pink, which she thoroughly enjoys. 2021 saw Lisa add radio announcer to her bag of tricks, as a regular on Bay FM 100.3 in Brisbane.
Mercedes DeLuca-Jones tours as part of the Funny Mummies Cabaret Spectacular line-up.

Lucy Peut is a comical writer, mother, chatter, and wannabe barrister. Regaling you with tales of her thoroughly modern family, the crazy you can’t medicate, and an ex still classed as dependent.
This mature age student is drowning in youthful enthusiasm and inspired reasons to study. Why did Lucy choose law? To drink bottled wine and draft her own divorces.
Touching microphones for money wasn’t always part of the plan, but neither was marriage and one of the kids. If you hear ‘pay you back when I’m a barrister’, you’ll be waiting a while.
