Winner Pinder Prize 2019 Melbourne Comedy Festival

Nominee Best Newcomer 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival

I started 2020 with the comedy world at my feet. I’d just won the Pinder Prize, debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe and scored a weekly segment on The Project and triple j.

Then… COVID happened.

Without stand-up to focus on, I went off the rails. I developed serious addictions to My Muscle Chef, lemon cordial and YouTube videos of people hearing famous songs for the first time.

This show is perfect for couples, parents, groups of friends, friends of friends, enemies, dogs, cats and anyone else living in Melbourne.

'He’s terrific and excellent at what he does. ★★★★' The Scotsman (UK)
