Joel Creasey is one of Australia’s most-popular, acclaimed and charmingly controversial stand-up comedians and television presenters. Areas of speciality include Comedians for Hire. A self-described shameless “fame whore”, Joel has become a television staple in Australia. Last year started with a bang, with the release of Joel’s Netflix stand up special, ‘Thirsty’.

In 2018 alone, as Australia’s newest and frankly loosest cupid, Joel hosted the worldwide phenomenon, shiny floor dating show, ‘Take Me Out’ on Network Seven. Joel captained his team to (rare) victory on the first season of Channel Ten’s studio-based comedy series, ‘Show Me The Movie!’, along with host Rove McManus, and was recommissioned for a second series that also aired in early 2019. In addition to his frequent role of comedic host on The Project, Joel is currently host and master matchmaker in Network Seven’s new Facebook web series, ‘Date Keepers’, alongside Miss World Australia, Erin Holland.
