Tommy Little: Self-Diagnosed Genius

The Project panellist has put it all on the line for laughs. From naked bungee jumps to running marathons in minus 20 degrees, Tommy's ready to share his lengthy list of questionable choices in a show that not only reflects on the nature of genius, it also struggles to spell it.

Judith Lucy: Judith Lucy vs Men 

Comedy icon Judith Lucy brings back her sold-out 2019 show where she reflected on her history with men. From stereotypes to family relations, at 51-years-old Judith invites the audience to wonder along with her if she should just give up dating altogether.

Dilruk Jayasinha: Live

Following his 2018 Logie win for Most Popular New Talent and before he won hearts during his stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here earlier this year, Dilruk snuck in filming a quick comedy special. The Utopia star is currently touring his newest show, Victorious Lion.

Lano & Woodley: Fly

After 12 years, one of Australia's favourite comedy duos, Lano and Woodley, reunite to bring the story of the Wright brothers to the stage. Winning the People's Choice Award at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Fly was also nominated for  Best Show at MICF and the Helpmann Awards.

May 8

Tom Gleeson: Joy

The Gold Logie winner, host of Hard Quiz and Hard Chat, Tom Gleeson's sold-out show Joy is back for audiences to revel in his ability to skewer anybody and anything. Much like he did with the Logies, Gleeson takes apart stand-up from the inside, and it's absolutely worth the watch.

Anne Edmonds: What's Wrong With You?

A reoccurring member of the Have You Been Paying Attention? gang, Anne Edmonds' What's Wrong With You? was nominated for the Most Outstanding Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Fans of her brilliant wit -- or her chaotic alter-ego Helen Bidou -- can revel in Anne's ability to seemingly have the best time while going wild onstage.

The Australian Amazon Original stand-up specials are streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video from April 10.
