THE AXIS OF AWESOME – AUSTRALIA’S TOP COMEDY ACT HIT UK SHORES THIS AUTUMN


  The Axis of Awesome will be heading to the UK to tour this coming autumn (full dates below).
The Axis of Awesome are The World’s Most Awesomest Comedy Band. In the incredible time that they have been together, they have done literally so much stuff. They have blown audiences away across Australia and around the world with their mixture of original comedy songs and pop parodies.
 
Their Four Chord Song is one of the highest rated comedy videos of all time on YouTube, and has received over 20 million hits. They have made TV appearances in Australia, the UK and Sweden and their albums “Scissors, Paper, ROCK!” and “Infinity Rock Explosion” and DVD “The Axis of Awesome Live” are hits with audiences worldwide.
 
They recently picked up the Time Out Award for Best Australian Act at the Sydney Comedy Festival and they are also recipients of the prestigious Moosehead Award for their first ever Melbourne International Comedy Festival show, “The Axis of Awesome Comeback Spectacular”. Their most recent show “Songs in the Key of Awesome” had it’s Australian premiere at The Sydney Opera house. Axis of Awesome are currently touring the United States.
 
They leave men laughing and women gasping (and also laughing), and before long you’ll be laughing and/or gasping, depending on your gender.
 
The Axis of Awesome are:
Jordan Raskopoulos: Lead vocals. Star of stage and screen, Jordan is best known for his work on “The Ronnie Johns Half Hour” on Channel 10. His memorable characters and humorous lines were both memorable and humorous. Currently a National Theatresports Champion, Jordan was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2007 Melbourne International Comedy Festival for his one-man show, “The Adventures of the Man With the Dominant Claw”. Jordan enjoys Snickers bars and the music of David Bowie.
 
Benny Davis: Keyboard, vocals. A classically trained musician, Benny brings some class to the Axis. And a portable keyboard. As an original member of the sketch comedy troupe “The Delusionists”, Benny was a stand out in their 2007 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Show. A regular cast member of almost every improvised comedy show in Sydney, Benny is a virtuoso on the keyboard. Benny enjoys Super Mario Galaxy on Nintendo Wii and the music of Billy Joel.
 
Lee Naimo: Guitar, way way back up vocals. One of Sydney’s best improvisers, Lee has made stuff up while touring Australia and internationally. Along with Jordan, Lee is a current National Theatresports Champion, and he is co-creator of the hit live show, “Scrabble Unscripted”, which was a sold-out success at both the Melbourne and Sydney Cracker Comedy Festivals in 2006 and 2007. Lee enjoys sunshine and the music of Hannah Montanna.
