I am a stand up comedian and MC based in Canberra but I travel frequently to festivals, club and corporate gigs. I have acted in a television commercial, done plenty of live radio interviews, panel and quiz spots for ABC Canberra and co-presented a breakfast radio program called The Bright Side on 2XX 98.3FM for two years. I had a crack at learning automated animations, which you can find on my Clips page.
I’m always looking for new gigs and opportunities to expand my work into new media so if you have a podcast, radio, tv or other presenting or panelist gig please be in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
I won best newcomer at the Sydney Comedy Festival in 2019 and have had one review in the seven years I’ve been performing, and it’s a very complimentary one, about my second solo show Bogus at the Canberra Comedy Festival in March 2019. You can read it here.
I am interested in fostering comedy talent in Canberra and run two regular comedy clubs in Canberra, Club Sandwich Comedy at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre and Beyond Comedy at Beyond Q Books. These gigs are always listed on this website as well as on the Comedy ACT website, which is where you’ll find information about all comedy gigs in Canberra. I also want to make a special mention that The Statesman Hotel in Curtin generously supports these rooms when I am able to bring interstate comedians to town by offering free accommodation. This is incredibly community-spirited of them and the comedy scene is greatly appreciative of their support -so much so, I made them a weird little thank you animation.
Here are some of my comedy highlights:
- Sydney Comedy Festival Gala 2019, Enmore Theatre
- Selected as part of the Sydney Comedy Festival Fresh Program 2019
- Frocking Hilarious Gala 2019, Enmore Theatre
- 2 x Canberra Comedy Festival Galas (2013, 2018), Canberra Theatre Centre
- Toured with Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase (2018/2019) to Brisbane, Tweed Heads, Byron Bay, Noosa, Caloundra, Lismore, Wagga Wagga, Wodonga, Canberra, Griffith, Bondi, Sutherland and Hornsby
- 3 x sold outs of Split Show Unqualified at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2019 with Tom Gibson
- After 7 years in comedy, my third solo show Bogus debuts in Sydney 18/19 May.
I hope you’ll come to a gig sometime, I keep all my gigs updated on my Gigs page. I especially hope you will come see live comedy, I reckon you can’t beat it.
