Cheeky Moon is the sketch comedy act of Australian writing duo Claire Coe & Alastair Craig. Their work celebrates the “giddy, imaginative and surprisingly touching” - from the quiet existential despair of Thomas the Tank Engine to the complex temporal physics of Vengaboys lyrics.

Their sketches and short films have been featured by Funny or Die, ABC Brisbane and film festivals across London, New York and Berlin - as well as going viral in the international nudist community. Claire and Alastair can now be found regularly loitering on Brisbane stages, writing jokes for late night television and continuing to share comedy videos online. Follow us below for the latest!

Let’s be the best of friends:


“Brilliantly clever comedy writing… each act just as funny as the last.”

Brisbane Stage

“It’s obvious they’re great writers with the way their sketches deceive and surprise audiences… but it’s the pair’s acting and commitment to their ideas which sells the comedy.”
