Rove McManus started his entertainment career as a stand-up comedian but has gone on to become Australia’s most successful talk show host and one of its biggest producers of entertainment television.

Rove got his first TV gig on community television, hosting his own tonight show. Rove hit the prime time schedule in 2000 with Rove Live on Network Ten after a brief late night stint on the Nine Network in 1999. The show played host to some of the planet’s biggest names with the likes of Cameron Diaz, John Travolta, Drew Barrymore, Matt Damon, The Duchess of York and U2 taking time out to chat with Rove.

Rove McManus’ production company Roving Enterprises has produced two scripted comedy series, a weekly sports panel show, and the nightly hybrid news program, The Project, as well as the ARIA Awards which Rove has hosted three times.

Rove has also been a three-time recipient of Australia’s most prestigious television award the oddly named Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality.

Rove McManus is currently based in Los Angeles where he has appeared as a regular on The Tonight Show, hosted two series of his own talk show Rove LA for FOX 8 and TV Guide Network and made his US primetime debut as host for Fox’s Riot. Rove has continued working as a stand up, appearing in clubs and theatres in LA and beyond and appearing as a guest on Comedy Central’s new late night hit @midnight.

“A few years from now there’s a real chance we will look back on September, 1999 as the time we saw the start of a network TV career of a young guy who may well turn out to be one of the biggest names in the business”
