Since the age of seventeen Greg Sullivan has been honing his skills as a comedic writer and performer. His first paid stand up gig on his nineteenth birthday paved the way to a job writing for Triple M radio when he was twenty one. By age twenty five he had made several national television appearances on Foxtel and all the free to air networks and been invited to perform in a showcase of Australian talent at The Hollywood Improv.
He has also hosted the top rating Triple M breakfast show The Cage for more than 8 years and made several appearances on The Project. Since then he has headlined shows in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Hong Kong, as well as regularly closing the show at The Sit Down Comedy Club and Sydney’s Original Comedy Store.
These days he splits his time between touring the world and collaborating on various television and movie projects. He can do completely clean shows for toddlers and grannies one night and win over inner city hipsters the next.
