“The relentlessly hilarious 23-year-old has the chops of a much more seasoned performer, and the charisma of an inevitable star.”

Joel Creasey is Australia’s most lovingly acerbic, sassily sharp and charmingly controversial comic.
Joel started stand-up comedy at age 15 in his hometown of Perth, and a decade later his intelligent social and political observations, outrageous wit, pop-culture expertise and unrivalled story telling abilities have already won the “Acid Tongue Prince” a legion of fans around the globe.
Joel first appeared at the 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and his relentlessly hilarious debut show Slumber Party was so successful it ultimately earned him a nomination for the prestigious Best Newcomer Award. He is still on the record books as one of the youngest ever nominees.
Joel has unleashed his talent and proved his versatility by returning to the Melbourne Comedy International Festival multiple times to deliver to sell-out shows such as his incisive political masterpiece Political Animal in 2011, the highly outrageous Naked in 2012, his revenge comedy The Drama Captain in 2013 (which was performed at 24 consecutive sold out shows), 2014’s sharply observed celebration of our obsession with personal heroes in Rock God and his personal tour-de-force The Hurricane in 2015- all of which had sell-out seasons. He was also selected as the host of the Melbourne Comedy International Festival gala.
The mischievous and motor-mouthed comedian has delivered each of his ruthlessly witty sold-out shows to audiences across Australia, winning multiple award nominations and 5 star reviews in every city, with the Sydney Morning Herald gushing “he’s a confident storyteller – energetic, concise, but conversational – with a ruthless wit and an infectious oh-my-god enthusiasm.”
“He’s a f**king star! I love him!”

Joel has also toured internationally with the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, and in 2013 Joel made his debut in the New York Comedy Festival, where he opened for comic legend Joan Rivers who was quick to call him “A f*cking star”. In 2014, Joel returned to the USA where he performed Rock God at the New York International Fringe Festival and again, he opened for Joan Rivers at her personal request.
The New York Post named Rock God as one of the top five events of the festival, calling it a “side-splittingly funny 70-minute display of stand-up that moves at a frantic pace per minute”, while Time Out claimed Joel “has the chops of a much more seasoned performer, and the charisma of an inevitable star.”
Joel has also performed extensively throughout Asia, the United Kingdom and in Montreal, Canada at the prestigious Just For Laughs festival. In 2014, he was trumpeted as “the highlight” of the Chevy Chase Gala by The Montreal Gazette and Joel returned to the Festival by invitation in 2015 to perform on the Alan Cummings Gala and host all the televised Just For Laughs specials produced for Network Ten Australia, including a compilation of the best “rude bits” of the festival’s history: Joel Creasey’s Comedy Offensive.
“A master raconteur”
Advocate, New York
Joel has also made a big impact on television, and he’s 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 and Studio Ten, and was hand-picked by Just For Laughs to perform on their televised Stand Up Series gala at the Sydney Opera House in 2013, 2014 and again in 2015. Continuing Just For Laughs’ love affair with Joel, in October 2015 they selected Joel to host their two hour Gala TV special featuring Sir Patrick Stewart, Neil Patrick Harris, Jane Lynch, Trevor Noah… and of course a spot from Joel himself!
Joel also won himself a new legion of fans in 2015 when he was one of the favourite and most outrageous contestants on Australia’s first season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Joel’s stint was so successful, he’s now been selected to host a unique companion show to I’m A Celebrity titled I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! Now which will feature behind-the-scenes action, celebrity updates, and exclusive gossip.
All this, and the guy is only 25!
“I was blown away. 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.”
