A three-time nominee for Most Outstanding Show of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Damien Power is widely regarded as the most exhilarating voice on the Australian comedy circuit, racking up a number of awards, nominations and rave reviews, and selling out rooms across the country.
Damien toured his raw, assured I Can’t Believe I Cared to audiences around Australia and the world in 2015. He took the 2016 festival scene by storm with Sell Mum Into Slavery, which was filmed as part of ABC TV’s Comedy Next Gen series.
The 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival saw Damien nominated for the Barry for Best Show for the third time in as many years, and win the Pinder Prize, an Edinburgh Fringe grant named in honour of legendary comedy impresario John Pinder. Utopia: Live in 3D played at the Assembly for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and at London’s Soho Theatre.
In the same year, Damien was selected to perform at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, appearing on All Access, hosted by Wyatt Cenac and filmed for the Comedy Network in Canada.
