OK here is a brief rundown of why I do comedy and how it all came to be.

Basically me and this comedy thing started off from the suggestion of a good friend from high school. He said I should try it, I contemplated it for about two years and eventually got the guts to have a go. Things kind of snowballed from there and it is now 3.5years later. It is probably the most exciting thing I've ever done with my life. There is nothing better for me than making people laugh - I never thought id be able live off it.

And that's pretty much the whole story - short and sweet and it all happened by accident. I never wanted to be a Comedian, it was nothing that I'd ever even thought about until my mate suggested it to me. To start with it was just me being 22 and not knowing what I was doing with my life, I just thought "yeah ill have a crack at that. Maybe. One day."

Now I'm 26 and it is my full time job. I left my other job six months ago to pursue this. I am based in Sydney Australia.

Anyway, enough of that boring story. Below is a list of things I've done since starting out in this industry. It is by no means everything just some of the more memorable ones.
