Introducing, Randy!

Randy is the third comedian lined up to perform at hyp’s upcoming Comedy Night

Randy started doing stand-up comedy in 2005 and has since given birth to seven critically acclaimed solo shows. He has appeared at Fringe, Comedy and Music festivals, performed on major stages in regal theatres and gigged in sticky-carpeted beer-barns from Edinburgh to Hong Kong, Galway to New York and Singapore to Sydney.

In 2016, Randy Writes a Novel was nominated for best comedy at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and went on to a season at the Soho Theatre in London as well as the 2017 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, where Randy also appeared on the Jane Krakowski Television Gala. The following year Randy Writes a Novel played an eight week Off-Broadway season at the Clurman Theatre in New York City and was later filmed as a special which aired on ABC TV in Australia.

In 2010, Randy joined forces with Sammy J to create Ricketts Lane, which won Best Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and went on to become a television series of the same name, airing on ABC TV in Australia, Seeso in the US and Netflix in the UK. Randy’s role in Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane earned him an ACTAA nomination for best performer in a comedy series in 2015, the first non-human performer to be recognised in this category.

Between occasional guest appearances on Australian light-entertainment television programs, Randy has spent a significant amount of time writing and touring with his musical partner in crime, Sammy J. Together they have hosted the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, appeared on Good News WorldQ&A and The Project, written and toured live shows such as Bin NightThe Inheritance and Sammy J and Randy Land, performed a few times at The Sydney Opera House, released an album and a couple of DVDs, been nominated for two ARIAs and featured on the Neil Patrick Harris Gala at the 2015 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.

Randy’s most recent live special is The Book Of Randicus and he was most recently spotted on NBC’s Bring The Funny.
