ABOUT

Kirsty is winning hearts all over the country with her upbeat and relatable brand of comedy that is often described as “playful, light-hearted and fun.” A gifted storyteller, she has a natural ability for turning the mundane into the hilarious. 

 

Kirsty entered the Australian comedy circuit in 2013 in an unconventional way. After doing a five minute set at the end of a comedy workshop she, having never heard of an open mic room, launched straight into writing and performing a full length show. Employing her public relations background she sold over 100 tickets in her hometown, Canberra. No stranger to hard work, Kirsty, used this show as a launching pad to build a professional stand up career from the ground up over the next few years.

Born in Canberra in 1982, as the second child in the Webeck family, Kirsty thrived for two years before a younger sister entered the scene, immediately rendering her a middle child. Over the next 18 years, she settled comfortably into the role, getting caught up in all sorts of scandals and triumphs which have informed her propensity to see the humour in everyday situations.

She’s a regular guest on ABC radio and in 2018, she was the featured comedian on an episode of The ABC’s “Tonightly With Tom Ballard.” She also toured regional WA in 2019 with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, and opened for Joel Creasey at sold out shows at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney and The Astor Theatre in Perth.
