Mitchell Shire comedian Jai Cameron is set to return to the stage as he previews his new show Daddy in Seymour before its official premiere at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Mr Cameron’s new dark stand-up comedy show highlights the joys and tribulations of fatherhood after he and his wife Makayla welcomed their first child in 2021.

The show questions whether Mr Cameron is cut out to be a father, and what it is like to be a father at 23.

“Rory is the light of my life, I love being a dad. I even have the dad bod all sorted,” Mr Cameron said.

“Rory is a big inspiration in Daddy [and I hope] she will be in the show strapped to me for 60 minutes as I am trying to save on baby-sitting. At least if I’m not funny there will be a cute child to look at.”

For one night only, Mr Cameron will bring Daddy to the Seymour Performers Workshop; a place he is quite familiar with.

He said he was looking forward to the community getting a taste of his new show for the first time.

“I always love performing at Seymour Performers Workshop. I’ve worked with the company on and off since 2017 and it feels like coming home,” he said.

“There’s a sense of familiarity performing to people you know.

“The Seymour show is the first time the whole show will be trialled in front of an audience so you can except the good, the bad and the unfunny prior to the 10-show run in Melbourne.”

Mr Cameron is no stranger to the comedy scene, and since launching onto the stage in 2017, he has been described as ‘one to watch’ by Beat Magazine.

His 2017 stand-up comedy show Would You Like Fries With That? sold out before opening night, and Is It Just Me? featured in the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and played to sold out audiences.

Daddy will preview at the Les Bell Pavilion, at Kings Park in Seymour on February 26 at 8.15pm. Tickets cost $22 and can be purchased at www.trybooking.com/events/landing?eid=864487&

Mr Cameron will then perform his show for 10 days from April 1 to 10 at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Tickets range from $24 to $30 and can be purchased at www.comedyfestival.com.au/2022/shows/daddy.
