Jim-Bob Jimmy Willing and Davey Bob Ramsey are Jim-Bob, two well travelled troubadours who have a right to sing the blues, not only do they have a right but they do it so damn well. Jimmy and Bob have captured the primal earthy sound of early country blues in what is a very lean and stripped down show. It's a less is more affair, just a guitar, a harmonica, two voices and some well told tales of love, loneliness and heartache. Blues is their specialty but they also do a grand cowboy waltz and a hell of a toe tapping polka.
Mark brings to the table over 21 years of performing experience coupled with a genuine passion for entertaining a wide range of audiences. “Performing is what I do, I’ve always done it, and I’ll continue to do it. Making people laugh is the best job in the world, I absolutely love it”
Having headlined and emceed all of the major comedy clubs around the country as well as regular corporate engagements and cruise ship bookings, Mark has comfortably become known as “One of the most reliable comedians in the business”
“When I’m headlining on a cruise ship it’s great to go out there and do a full show for an hour or so. When MCing though I like to have a lot more interaction with my audiences, you’re up there all night, make it personal and get to know each other, it’s great!”
As a story teller Mark can keep an audience enthralled as he peppers them with punchline after punchline littered throughout real life true stories from his life.
His innate ability to connect with people from all walks of life means Mark can zero in on the finer points of life and present them in a way that makes you laugh and laugh hard.

A NEW comedy production is set to have Northern Rivers audiences laughing in the aisles. Larry Laughs Loud is the latest production from local comedian, Vanessa Larry Mitchell, who will be touring her show througout the area and beyond. Mitchell's comedy career was launched after she attended Mandy Nolan's comedy writing workshop in 2015. "I had no idea where the journey would take me" Mitchell said. Having attended the course for 'a bit of fun', Mitchell descovered that she enjoyed telling stories and potentially risky jokes to rooms full of people. After performing regularly in open mic nights in Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and the Gold Coast, Mitchell found it difficult to balance the travel outside the local area with her full-time day job and being a mum, so she decided to set up an open mic room at he Rous hotel in Lismore. An instant success, Larry Laughs Loud is now a regular monthly gig at the hotel and the Lismore Workers Club, the Deck and Lounge at SCU, Yamba Recreation and Bowling Club, and performances are planned for Alstonville, Nimbin and Evans Head. Mandy Nolan, a veteran to the Australian comedy scene, describes Mitchell as 'A refreshingly natural voice; sassy and confident'. Mitchell said Larry Laughs Loud is about giving new and emerging comics a space to develop their skills on stage in a safe and supportive environment, as well as bringing experienced talent to the region. 'We are generating loads of interest and support from people wanting to have a go on the stage a well as our rapidly growing audiences' she said, "I am particularly passionate about increasing female representation in comedy and supporting women to build confidence, to embrace their own style of humour, in a heavy male dominated industry".
