STAND-UP GUYS: Gary Eck and Gary Bradbury will feaure at Comics on the Run.

COMICS on the Run will be once again delighting the audience for their annual Camp Quality Laughter is the best Medicine Sawtell RSL show.

This year sees a brilliant line-up of national comedians.

Gary Eck, who co-directed the film Happy Feet Two with Academy Award winner George Millar, as well as voicing several characters alongside the late Robin Williams, headlines this year.

Among other accolades, he has played a lead character in Australian film Boytown, is a regular on 2DayFM's morning crew and The Late Show with Gary Eck.

"I am delighted to be bringing Gary Eck along this year to close the show. When you put a national line-up like this together, that headline spot is a difficult one to fill. Past shows have been headlined by Lawrence Mooney and Akmal, Gary Eck is perfect for that spot and I'm delighted he's agreed to come to Coffs and close the showcase for such a worthy cause," said MC and force behind the show Scotsman, Barry McLeod.

Barry has produced the show for seven years, developing the concept and building the event from a half filled room to the funniest night on the Mid-North Coast - a sellout show.

It is a star studded line-up this year.
