At just 26 years old, Joel Creasey is one of Australia’s most-popular, acclaimed and charmingly controversial stand up comedians.

A self-described shameless “fame whore”, Joel has become a television staple – making regular appearances on The Project, The Great Debate, Comedy Up Late, Tractor Monkeys, 20 to 1, Have You Been Paying Attention, The Big Music Quiz, Studio Ten, The Circle, A League of Their Own, The Living Room, Gaycrashers, Dirty Laundry, How Not to Behave, It’s a Date, to name but a few.
