Randy began performing stand up comedy in 2005 and has rapidly carved out a purple, felty niche on the world comedy stage.
He debuted his solo show Randy’s Postcards From Purgatory in 2009 to critical acclaim, selling out seasons at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2010 he joined forces with Sammy J to create Ricketts Lane, a live sitcom, which won the Barry Award for Best Show at the 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, played a season at the Sydney Opera House and went on to sell out in Edinburgh. Since then the unique purple and skinny-man duo have headlined a Gala in Montreal, hosted the 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival OXFAM Gala, starred on the TV sketch show Good News World (Network Ten), performed on ABC’s live-to-air political panel show Q&A, busted out an original song to launch Australian music month for JJJ, written and toured shows such as Bin Night, The Inheritance and Sammy J and Randy: The Arena Spectacular all over the world, and somehow still found time to play squash every Thursday evening in Moorabbin.
Randy has maintained a strong solo career throughout, popping up in comedy rooms from Tasmania to Galway, appearing at music festivals in Australia like Falls Fest and Harvest, featuring as a panelist on Good News Week and touring extensively in Australia and South East Asia with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow. His most recent full length show Randy is Sober debuted at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was filmed as part of ABC2's Warehouse Comedy Festival series.
Randy is Sober is currently available on DVD. Sammy J & Randy's Difficult First Album was debuted in 2013, a live recording of one of their Brisbane performances of Sammy J & Randy: The Arena Spectacular. In 2015 their television comedy series Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane, a sitcom based on their touring show of the same name, aired on ABC and was picked up by NBC Universal's comedy channel Seeso and later by Netflix.
