Demi Lardner

about_03

Meet Australia's fresh, young, hilarious face of comedy! Demi has been doing stand-up since she was 16 and in the past five years has scored handfuls of awards and performed her unique brand of funny around the country and abroad.

In 2013 Demi Lardner won the RAW Comedy Competition and tied for first place in the national final of So You Think You're Funny? in Edinburgh. She also won Adelaide Comedy's Rising Starr Award for Best Newcomer and Bank SA's Best Emerging Comedy Show at the Adelaide Fringe 2013, for the production of Wolf Creek - The Musical.

In 2014, she was invited to perform at Montreal Just For Laughs and in 2015 she took Australia by storm with her debut solo show, Birds with Human Lips, performed at Adelaide Fringe. Demi's second show came in 2015 called Best Good Show, which saw her take the stage with Angus Brown at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Having planned to spend 2015 on the local and international comedy circuits, Demi instead jumped at the chance to join Australian comedy legends on Foxtel's sketch series Open Slather.

This year Demi took her latest show Life Mechanic to Adelaide Fringe where The Advertiser assured crowds "you'll certainly be entertained." At Melbourne Comedy Festival the Herald Sun complimented "it's a decent achievement to be this young, look 10 years younger and still appear old beyond your years." Finishing her shows tour at Sydney Comedy Festival, Chortle said of one of our favourite young comedians "a sparky confidence…attentive, skillful comic writing."

We can't wait to see what she does next!
