Dave Thornton (4 stars)

This article is from 2009.

It would be easy to think the ‘Aussie abroad’ shtick has been done exhaustively from Crocodile Dundee to the many Antipodean stand-ups on the circuit, but Thornton can hold his own with some ‘bonzer’ material. A friendly demeanour, knack for visual and verbal impressions plus a good punchline-count combine to make this nearly as hot as a shrimp on a barbie.

Dave brings his honest, laid-back and completely engaging style to the Fringe. A Melbourne Comedy Festival best newcomer nominee, he's been described as having 'a quick and self deprecating wit' (Age).
