“The relentlessly hilarious 23-year-old has the chops of a much more seasoned performer, and the charisma of an inevitable star.”
TimeOut New York
Australia’s “Acid Tongue Prince” Joel Creasey has just completed a stellar season of solo shows Off-Broadway, following his sold-out Festival season across Australia in 2014. Having burst onto the scene at the tender age of 19, he is now one of the best known, hottest and most sought-after comedians in Australia- and he’s still only 24 years old!
Creating controversy yet winning legions of new fans wherever he goes, in only a short time Joel has built a huge following that is rapidly growing both nationally and internationally. People everywhere are falling in love with his intelligent observations, acerbic style, pop-culture expertise and unrivalled story telling abilities.
“He’s a f**king star! I love him!”
TimeOut New York
Joel wowed public and industry alike in Montreal at the 2014 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival where he was trumpeted as “the highlight” of the Chevy Chase Gala by The Montreal Gazette, and turned heads in every show he appeared on at the prestigious Festival.
“A master raconteur”

Lovingly referred to as ‘The Acid Tongue Prince’, in only a short time Joel has built a cult following that is rapidly spreading into the wider Australian community. People everywhere are falling in love with his intelligent observations, acerbic style and pop-culture savvy. Joel recounts mesmerizing stories of his run-ins with celebrities, politicians, football teams, regional towns and of course his parents.
“I was blown a way. So young, such a genius… he either needs a slap or a Helpmann Award.”
Appearing out of nowhere at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2010, Joel quickly became the talk of the town with his debut show Slumber Party – ultimately earning him a nomination for the prestigious Best Newcomer Award. He is still on the record books as one of the youngest ever nominees.
In 2011 Joel returned to the festival circuit with his show Political Animal, in which he turned his incisive mind and critical gaze toward politics, offering a step-by-step Beginner’s Guide to Becoming Prime Minister. This show went on to sell-out seasons across Australia.
His third show Naked saw Joel get his kit off (both literally and metaphorically) at comedy festivals in 2012 – selling out Festival seasons to public and critical acclaim. 2012 also saw Joel film his first solo DVD Special, The Acid Tongue Prince. This was broadcast as a solo stand-up special on ABC2.
Joel’s show The Drama Captain sold out seasons all over the country including 24 consecutive sold out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013. It was nominated for Best Show at both Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals, grabbing Joel gushing 5 star reviews along the way.
Joel has also become a firm favourite of audiences across Australia touring with the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow- a major tour showcasing a selection of Australia’s best comedians. November 2013 saw Joel head to the USA to make his debut in the New York Comedy Festival, where he opened for Joan Rivers who called him “A f*cking star”. In 2014, Joel returned to the USA where he performed at the New York International Fringe Festival and again, opened for Joan Rivers at her request.
Joel has co-hosted Channel Ten’s The Circle, featured on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival All Stars Supershow, ABC2’s Comedy Up Late, ABC 1’s Tractor Monkeys, Ten’s A League of Their Own & The Project and was hand-picked by Just For Laughs to perform on their televised gala at the Sydney Opera House in 2013 and 2014.
When he’s in the country, Joel can been heard on the radio in various roles across the Southern Cross Austereo network nationally.
“Wonderful! Joel Creasey has, in only a short time, gained a legion of loyal local fans in love with his edgy”
and bitching attitude.
