BIG BREKKY is a new monthly comedy show featuring performances from your favourite Sydney bands. After a sell out run in 2020 Big Brekky is back bringing you the hottest comedy show inspired by Australian breakfast TV.

Hosted by Issy Phillips and Juliet Timmerman, on the fourth Friday of each month expect to be treated to special guests from the Sydney comedy scene while getting your live music fix.


Issy Phillips is a comedian, writer and climate communicator. She was named one of GQ’s three brightest millennial comics and was featured in Harper’s Bazaar as an artist capturing the zeitgeist. Her TEDx Talk, ‘Could ASMR be the Answer to Climate Change?’ advocates for using the arts as a medium to inspire action on climate. Her acclaimed debut show ASMR Live has been performed to sell out audiences across Australia and you can catch her on your radio every Saturday morning on FBi 94.5 FM.

Juliet Rae Timmerman is a standup comic, improviser, and host of Sydney’s live improvised talk show The Laugh Tub. She perfectly debuted her first solo hour ‘A Perfect Debut’ at Sydney Fringe in 2018, and has since brought her absurd comedy stylings to the Sydney Comedy Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Perth Fringeworld, and the Del Close Marathon (NYC)
