ABOUT

Kirsty wins hearts everywhere she goes 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 and has quickly become one of the most popular Australian comedians in the industry. 

 

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 launched straight into writing and performing a full length show. Employing her public relations background she sold over 100 tickets to her first major performance 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.

Her career has grown exponentially over the last few years. 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.” In 2019, she toured regional WA 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. In 2020 she was seen MCing the comedy stage at Falls Festival Byron Bay, opening for Tom Gleeson at Bunbury Fringe, on Channel 10's 'How To Stay Married' and all over Zoom during self isolation. 

So far in 2021, she's had a huge season of her show Chuck A Sickie at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, appeared on the Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and toured with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow.

She also has a very successful podcast called 'The Best' in which she comedically examines new topics each week and determines what the best of those topics are under the guise of them being objective facts. It's been receiving rave reviews and is available to listen to for free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Kirsty is exclusively managed by Michelle Buxton and Chris McDonald at Buxstock Comedy Management.
