About

Chimp Cop is one of Australia's most exciting sketch comedy groups. Their short live sets are always hilarious, their full length festival shows are amongst the best-reviewed and most popular every year and their first video has already amassed over 10,000 views.

Chimp Cop is made up of four of Melbourne's most exciting comedic talents - Adam Knox won the national Class Clowns competition and featured in the RAW Comedy National Grand Final, Timothy Clark has performed to acclaim in many group festival shows, Rosie Vernel is a lauded actor and has guested on a wide variety of shows, and Ben Vernel is a talented writer and performer who co-hosts one of Australia's most popular comedy podcasts.

A live set from Chimp Cop is always unpredictable, memorable and hilarious, and their festival shows have been described as "an invigorating blast of knockabout silliness that fires out joyous gags like a confetti cannon." (Chortle UK).
