Comedians Jon Levene and Nathan Lang met at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. They created three successful Comedy Festival shows together, boy band parody 40 Foot Flaccid and the hugely-popular 6-part sketch comedy TV series The Intermissionary Position for Melbourne’s Channel 31.
Since relocating to the UK they officially formed as Jon & Nath, performing live across the UK (frequently headlining), producing a constant output of video and radio sketches. Jon & Nath were finalists in London Sketchfest ‘Best New Act’ and ‘Best Video Sketch’, and featured on Radio 4 Extra's Newsjack. Their current live show Jon & Nath Like To Party has been performed at Edinburgh Fringe (2017), Leicester Comedy Festival, Brighton Fringe, Prague Fringe and Camden Fringe.
Nathan Lang is an Australian-born actor and comedian. He played 'Pinhead' on Australian soap Neighbours for two years (1998-2000), which is funny enough. Guest roles followed on several other Aussie TV shows (Blue Heelers, Stingers, Good Guys Bad Guys, Marshall Law). Theatre credits include: Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It and The Merry Wives Of Windsor (Green Cyc Theatre, Aus); The Present (Cock Tavern Theatre), Cosi (White Bear & King’s Head). He has directed several short films and revue comedy shows. Nathan is a regular character and clown performer, and host of London's beloved alternative comedy night Lost Cabaret. He will be seen this year in Yorgos Lanthimos' feature film The Favourite, with Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz.
Jon Levene is a London-born comedian and writer. He began stand-up in Melbourne as the youngest comic on the circuit (age 20) and went on to perform two solo shows at MICF and Edinburgh Fringe. His Australian credits include: In The Shed comedy shorts (The Comedy Channel), Best Of The Brat (Radio 3RRR), special reporter on NOVA radio, and Comics In The Dog House (BEAT Magazine). In the UK he is a regular stand-up performer with Mirth Control, Soho Comedy, Laughing Horse and Top Secret Comedy Club. You probably saw Jon in a very witty Strongbow commercial with Tim Key, which would have brought his manliness into question in Australia, yet strangely is a sign of virility here in the UK.
