STAND-UP COMEDIAN - MC - PRESENTER
Private parties a specialty
WHO AM I
I have officially been doing stand-up since about 2004 although I've been entertaining friends at parties and around dinner tables all of my life.
I've performed at pubs, clubs and theatres around Newcastle and Sydney, as well as private parties and corporate events. I've also performed internationally, having made my international debut in The Take-Out Comedy Club in Hong Kong in 2011. In 2013 I performed at The Comedy Store of India in Mumbai, and also at a conference in Vietnam. Since then I've performed in The Philippines and most recently in Kuala Lumpur.
In 2015 I performed my debut solo show, The Minorities Report in Newcastle and at The Sydney Fringe Festival.
I currently run monthly free and live comedy nights at The Oriental Hotel, Cooks Hill, NSW, featuring Newcastle Comedians as well as comedians from Sydney, interstate and overseas.
I'm always looking for a laugh, and consider myself to be a master punster, having come out with some of the best, and indeed some of the worst puns ever conceived.
Prior to trying stand-up in Newcastle, I presented a one hour comedy show called ‘The Bright Side’, on Port Stephens FM community radio, for two and a half years, and it was said that I had quite a following.
I'm told that I have a presence on stage, that I'm witty and intelligent, and I believe that my generic style endears me to a wide range of audiences. Am I a Newcastle comedian who gets everyone laughing? Am I a Newcastle comedian that people seem to enjoy? Come along to one of my gigs and find out.
So am I one of the best standup comics in Newcastle...or one of the best comedians in Australia? You be the judge. Come and see me at a gig! And check out my testimonials below!
