We are your one-stop shop for comedy

At the height of his powers, legendary comedian Spike Milligan and his motley crew of comedy writers set up shop above a grocers in London to service the creative community with a highly sought-after joke store. The premise was simple - need to put the funny into your speech, radio ads or television commercials? Then give us a call!

The Punch Up picks up where Milligan left off. We’re a bureau of Australia’s funniest comedy creatives and we’re ready to collaborate on your next project. If you have content that needs to be engagingmemorable and, above all else, funny – we’re the people you need. Our creatives have worked across every possible platform; popular light entertainment and narrative comedy television, radio, print and now you have a direct line to the funniest person in the room.

We’re the class clowns come good and we’ll work with you to enhance your vision and make the process seem like the easiest thing in the world.

 
 
 
 

Comedy is the business of ideas

Women say the most desired trait in a partner is a good sense of humour, ever wondered why that is? It’d be nice for most of us fuggos to think those women are just being nice to us, but what if all they’re really saying is they want a partner who sees the world the way they do, someone they truly connect with? Because that’s what comedy is:

Comedy is connection.

Comedy is the most efficient way to get your point across or even change a person’s mind, because it slips under your guard and provokes a reaction. We can’t help what we laugh at, but when we do laugh we know exactly who we are. When something cracks us up, it resonates with us. The message sticks in our mind because it’s provoked a physical and emotional response.

If you find yourself asking “why is comedy important to my project?” According to a study published in Adweek, the campaigns millennials remember best are the funny ones: 80% recall ads that made them laugh, but they’re especially harsh in judging brands whose attempts at humour come off as disingenuous.

It’s tough to master comedy, it is most definitely an art. An art we have decades of experience with.

 
 
Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.
— Peter Ustinov
