Cameron James Newcastle Comedy Festival 2024

Cameron James is an award-winning stand-up comedian and creative force across stages, screens and podcasts.

Cam has won countless rave reviews (and some shit ones, let’s be honest) for his unique and warm comedy style that blends hilariously honest storytelling, music, improv and an open-hearted embrace of the chaotic. He most recently toured his highly acclaimed show Electric Dreams to sold out solo performances around the country, from Melbourne’s Max Watts to Sydney’s Factory Theatre and Newcastle’s Town Hall.

Since beginning his comedy career as a Raw Comedy National Runner Up in 2012, he has gone on to win an AWGIE Award for Best Comedy Writing, an APA Award for Best Entertainment Podcast, the Director’s Choice Award at Sydney Comedy Festival as well as being nominated for the highly coveted Most Outstanding Show Award at Melbourne Int. Comedy Festival in 2022.

Offstage, Cam has most recently acted as primary cast member and writer on ABC’s WTFAQ, At Home Alone Together (ABC), a guest actor on Bump (Stan), a recurring panelist on Question Everything (ABC), as a performer and head comedy writer on The Feed (SBS) and performing in his own comedy special on ABC’s Comedy Next Gen in 2018. He’s also popped up here and there on Utopia (ABC) as an annoying guy, and Orange Is The New Brown (Seven) as another annoying guy.

Over the past few years, he has become a sought out comedy writer, serving multiple seasons on Gruen (ABC), Win The Week (ABC), Channel Seven’s “Roasts” as well as The Feed (mentioned above) where he won multiple AWG awards (did I mention that too? I think I did).

Cam has found most of his success on something called “the Internet”, with his hit YouTube/Screen Australia series Finding Yeezus and the podcasts Finding Drago and Finding Desperado amassing an audience of over 1.5 million around the globe. A comedy spin on the true crime genre, these shows have been described by The Australian as “tremendously bonkers” and by The AV Club as “brilliantly silly”.
