In a celebration of campness, Christmas and comedy, best pals Joel Creasey and Rhys Nicholson – and their chosen family – will reunite to host a yuletide spectacular on Friday 1 December at the Enmore Theatre.
Presented by Comedy Republic, last year’s debut of Rhys & Joel’s Family Christmas had audiences in stitches with its series of uproarious shows. In 2023, the dynamic duo is once again set to sashay across Australia, joining forces in Sydney to host an evening of pure unadulterated hilarity, storytelling and conversation alongside a soon-to-be-announced lineup of the nation’s fiercest comedians, drag artists and musicians.
Australia’s favourite self-proclaimed drunk aunties will take time out of their hectic solo schedules to come together for some good old festive frivolity: Joel Creasey the glittering star of Australia’s #1 drive radio show “Ricki-Lee, Tim and Joel,” known for bringing glamour to Eurovision and starring in Netflix’s Comedians of the World, and the scandalously hilarious Rhys Nicholson renowned for RuPaul’s Drag Race Downunder, Conan and their very own Netflix special.
Joel Creasey said, “Fresh off the back of our debut season which was a festive triumph (can only put that down to me). I get to rejoin my best friend Rhys Nicholson on stage for a very jovial and gay family Christmas tour! Rhys is both the devil and the angel on my finely toned deltoid (that’s your shoulder) and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Rhys Nicholson added, “Come watch as we really get into the Christmas spirit. And by “spirit” I mean Gin. I can’t think of a better way to spend the silly season than monetising the relationship I have with my best friend live on stage.”
Set to be the highlight of the holiday season, Rhys, Joel and friends will deliver no-holds-barred belly laughs and outrageous innuendo, chucking out the carols for queens by candlelight this Christmas.
