In a celebration of campness, Christmas, and comedy, best pals Joel Creasey and Rhys Nicholson – along with their chosen family – are reuniting to host a yuletide spectacular at the Enmore Theatre on Friday, 1 December. Presented by Comedy Republic, the duo’s Rhys & Joel’s Family Christmas show had audiences in stitches last year with its uproarious performances. And in 2023, they’re back to sashay across Australia, joining forces in Sydney for an evening of pure unadulterated hilarity, storytelling, and conversation.

Joining them on stage will be a lineup of some of the nation’s fiercest comedians, drag artists, and musicians, promising a night of unforgettable festive entertainment. Joel Creasey, known as the glittering star of Australia’s #1 drive radio show “Ricki-Lee, Tim and Joel,” as well as for bringing glamour to Eurovision and starring in Netflix’s Comedians of the World, will be showcasing his comedic talents alongside the scandalously hilarious Rhys Nicholson, renowned for their appearances on RuPaul’s Drag Race Downunder, Conan, and their very own Netflix special.

Fresh off the success of last year’s debut season, Joel Creasey is excited to join his best friend Rhys Nicholson on stage once again for a jovial and gay family Christmas tour. Rhys Nicholson, always ready with a witty remark, adds, “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 monetizing the relationship I have with my best friend live on stage.”

Prepare for a night of no-holds-barred belly laughs, outrageous innuendos, and a delightful departure from traditional carols. Rhys, Joel, and their friends will deliver a show that will be the highlight of the holiday season. Tickets are on sale now, and you can find more information at comedyrepublic.com.au/rhysandjoel. Keep an eye out for the announcement of special guest lineups in October.

But that’s not all – Rhys & Joel’s Family Christmas will also be making stops in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, and Wollongong from 30 November to 9 December. So, mark your calendars, grab your tickets, and get ready to laugh your way through a fabulously festive evening with these comedic geniuses. It’s a Christmas celebration you won’t want to miss!
