Get ready for beer-spilling gags when you see Suns of Fred on stage. The super funny musical comedy trio is the product of the Aussie street comedy theater. Sly, Fox and Mickey J have been entertaining comedy fans since 1997. Wearing black uniforms and mischievous smiles, these young and handsome men know where to tickle their audience and produce thunderous gags. They will go to all lengths to make you laugh, even if it involves displaying eclectic dance moves and singing ludicrous parodies.
Hailing from Perth, the trio has proven its comic skills in all major national comedy festivals, and has successfully held its own with celebrity comedians. Their act is a cocktail of energetic dancing, melody and comedy that satiates all senses. If you like to drink, dance and laugh all you can, Suns of Fred pretty much fit the bill. Live stage performers down to the core, they know how to take the crowd along and make people a part of their act. They travel across the country to perform at festivals, clubs and comedy competitions, and will love to participate in your event if you invite them. Contact us to learn about their upcoming performances and availability for your event.
Suns of Fred are going to rock you, no matter what. You might not like some of their below-the-belt humor, but you won’t be able to resist the riot of music and dancing that they unleash. Bubbling with energy, they electrify the stage and subvert their audience into singing and dancing with them. One of them plays the guitar while the other two launch on a crazy routine of energetic dancing. As for the comedy part, pretty much everything goes. These are street artists to the bone, and they know how to have people in stitches.
The three ‘Suns of Fred’ are friends since their school years, something that gives them their amazing chemistry together. They create laughter by telling jokes about famous media personalities, such as Paris Hilton. They would mimic a Lady Gaga song and make it something absolutely hilarious. Their jokes and funny songs are targeted at the pedestrian, and they never miss their mark. You can expect to see some deep blue elements as cringe-worthy as touching someone’s behind. Suns of Fred are risqué artists and their shows are often rated 15+. They are perfect for street shows and bar stages as well as festivals and parties.
The trio is a permanent fixture at comedy festivals such as Perth Comedy Festival, Fringe World Festival, Adelaide Fringe, and Sydney Comedy Festival. They won the “Next Gen Award” at the 2012 Perth International Comedy Festival. They also won the final of the Green Faces National Comedy Competition and reached the grand finals of the Raw State competition in 2012.
The trio went international when they performed at the Edinburgh Fringe last August. The Music calls them “a laughter injection”. And Tim Ferguson thinks they are “the next gigantic thing”.
The Suns of Fred – Sly and Fox have known each other since year two and Mickey J came along in the Summer of ’97…
Suns of Fred are a musical comedy trio hailing from Perth, Western Australia. With a strong background in street theatre and performance, these boys know how to tickle your funny bones with their smooth harmonies and eclectic dance moves.
Three tough, rugged, handsome young Aussie men in uniform – what more could you ask for?…singing and dancing…ok!
It’s music. It’s comedy. It’s “dance in your face” excited!!!
**** FOUR STARS “ Fast paced and energetic…Sly, Fox and Micky J have a lot of spunk, and they aren’t shy of crossing the line of cheekinees….You’ll be impressed by their smooth harmonies (these boys can really sing!) which are matched by kick-ass dance moves to rival those of any boy band” – March 2014, The Advertiser

“I couldn’t recommend Suns of Fred more. I think they fit our event perfectly they entertained, mingled and were an absolute delight to have on the day. Our event was a huge success with 350 people seated around giant long tables on the sand of the Rockingham Foreshore. If you could please thank them again on behalf of myself and the team. We appreciated everything they did in ensuring the MC, Auctions, Raffles and Fashion parade were covered with humour and entertainment. They were a great asset to our event.

“Suns of Fred performed at a VIP event that we put on back in August and they turned out to be the life of the party. They are a hilarious (and risqué!) trio and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good laugh. They really turned the energy up in the room and the guests could not stop talking about them afterwards. So funny that I went to see them again two weeks later! Highly recommend”
“Suns of Fred, we are still lost for words about how fantastic you were over the last two nights of the Stand up to MS Comedy Gala. The energy you brought to the stage was captivating, engaging, and hilarious.”
Stand up to MS Comedy Gala Organiser Jenny Stafford
The three local lads who made their fame from the side boob gag hit the Velvet Lounge like a bra strap pulled back and released. Suns of Fred are three good mates who, in the vein of the “Doug Anthony All-stars” in the 80s, are a high energy singing and dancing trio.
Coated with melodious harmonies-these lads can sing! It is also extremely dangerous to be in the front row. You could say it is interactive but that would involve voluntary participation. Instead Sly, Fox and Mickey J, who make up Suns of Fred, are in the audiences’ faces from woe to go.
Clearly, this form of comedy has a grateful and appreciative audience obvious from the laughter and applause in the venue. Give yourself a laughter injection and see one of the three remaining shows. Darren Moldrich
