Creasey is one of the brightest stars in the Australian comedy firmament. After having burst onto the scene at the tender age of 19 he is now one of the best known and sought after comedians in the country, and he’s still only 23 years old!
Creating controversy and gathering legions of new fans wherever he goes, Joel recounts mesmerizing stories of his run-ins with celebrities, politicians, football teams, regional towns and of course his parents.
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.
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.
Most recently Joel’s show ‘The Drama Captain’ sold out seasons all over the country including 24 consecutive sold out shows at the Melbourne Comedy Festival 2013. It was nominated for Best Show at both Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals, grabbing gushing 5 star reviews.
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”.
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. On the radio Joel can been heard each weekday morning as a regular member of Perth’s 92.9 breakfast show which also goes out across the Southern Cross Austereo nationally.
“Joel Creasey has a strong streak of likeability. He has certainly imposed his compelling personality on the stand-up world.”
“Joel Creasey’s brand of self-deprecating humour, knack for storytelling and crowd interaction marks him as a face of the future.”
“I was blown a way. So young, such a genius… he either needs a slap or a Helpmann Award.”
“Wonderful! Joel Creasey has, in only a short time, gained a legion of loyal local fans in love with his edgy”
and bitching attitude.
