Relatable, no nonsense standup. This touring headliner and Fringe favourite delivers, finding big laughs in a year that was as hard as a cat’s head. Practical, funny, he’s a comedy Swiss army knife.

The artist and producer
Kel Balnaves is a skilled headline comedian touring throughout Australia and is a regular guest comedian onboard P&O Cruise ships. Well… that was before… you know, Covid – but let’s not talk about that.
Kel has been performing at the festivals for over 10 years! Wet behind the ears, Kel performed in his first Adelaide Fringe way back in 2008. His ears have now dried out and he has since written and performed 8 solo shows on the trott.
Instantly likeable and infinitely relatable, Kel Balnaves is a laconic story teller with a keen eye for those everyday things we all experience. Solid, reliable and punchy, he is the act to bet on.
