Two of Australias funniest check in to Travelodge Hotels

first_imgTFE Hotels has recruited some of the funniest names in Australian comedy to promote the new “Refreshingly Simple” philosophy of Travelodge Hotels across Australia and New Zealand.Perth export Joel Creasey and Newcastle’s Rhys Nicholson will release a hilarious new set of videos next week to bring to life the Travelodge Hotels brand, which has recently undergone the biggest refresh in its 40-year history.With a down to earth attitude and an honest sense of humour, Travelodge Hotels are designed to suit the way we live today.Each of the 17 hotels in Australia and New Zealand are now based on a Refreshingly Simple approach, giving travellers more of what they want and less of the things that seem, well, rather pointless.TFE Hotels CEO Rachel Argaman said the videos were designed to share the refreshed Travelodge Hotels brand with a broader demographic, engaging with younger audiences via Social Media using well known personalities for the campaign.“Comedians like Joel are a logical fit for Travelodge Hotels. He has a great appeal and his star has risen so far in recent years, while Rhys offers something different with his quirky local knowledge of his hometown,” Ms Argaman said.“We’ve created a set of rollicking videos that will be launched online, using Travelodge as their base.”Australia’s ‘Acid Tongue Prince’ Joel Creasey will check in to host a short-video series, in which he will share his travel stories, hints and advice.As one of Australia’s hottest comedians, Joel made a name for himself performing sold-out runs at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and with shows at the New York International Fringe Festival.He has been inside his fair share of hotels across the world in recent years and has a huge repertoire of stories to tell, ranging from the good to the bad, to the downright awkward…“Everyone has experienced that intense moment of panic when you’ve just jumped out of the shower and you hear a knock at the door and, ‘HOUSEKEEPING’,” Joel said.“We’re going to take a little journey into the world of travel the funnier moments of hotel stays so hopefully, we’ll have a few laughs along the way. Stay tuned!”Joining Joel on the Travelodge guest list is Newcastle’s razor-sharp-witted, Rhys Nicholson who burst onto the scene when he won the 2012 Time Out Award for Best Newcomer at the Sydney Comedy Festival.Though he now lives in Sydney, his hometown will always be extremely close to his heart. Rhys will be filming a travel guide with a twist for visitors to the harbourside city, giving insider hints and tips for making the most of a few days in this often-overlooked part of New South Wales.“I might have been away from Newcastle for a few years now, but I definitely have fond memories of growing up there. Or maybe I just have memories…” Rhys said.“There’s definitely a different side to the city that you can discover if you know where to look, which luckily I do, so I’m looking forward to showing off my roots with my very own travel guide!” Learn more hereSource = TFE Hotelslast_img
