Barry Mcleod – MC
Barry was born in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland where the great poet Robert Burns died over 200 years ago. Robbie’s death was about all that has ever happened there – so at 18, Barry escaped.
After studying his BSc and travelling through Europe and the US he found himself in Australia working as a Quantity Surveyor.
With the collapse of the construction industry and the subsequent IT boom, Barry moved into Project Management – studying the Masters degree at the University of NSW.
In 1998, an opportunity arose to study the MBA , majoring in Strategic Management – at Macquarie Graduate School of Management. With this came Barry’s final break with the construction industry.
Since then he has worked as a consultant on a variety of strategic management and performance projects: from hosting conferences; performance coaching; to leading bid teams in tendering major project joint ventures.
Barry has always believed that ‘laughter is good for the soul’ – so he took his first steps into standup comedy. For the past 15 years he has been writing, performing and producing comedy; whilst balancing this with corporate events, MC and facilitation work.
The combination of his corporate knowledge and his professional entertainment experience makes Barry the perfect host for your event. He will work with your brief and agenda, and tailor his performance to the theme.
Sarah Levett – Feature
Sarah Levett is widely regarded as an outstanding, ‘rising star’ on the comedy circuit – having performed sold-out tours and to full houses, from the U.S.A to the Sydney and Melbourne International Comedy Festivals – plus many years of early starts and big laughs on breakfast radio.
Between writing, performing, and media appearances, Sarah is also a full-time Mum to a joyful, bouncing bundle of sleep-deprivation and psychological torture techniques – the likes of which have not been used on civilians since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent disbandment of the East German secret police. Sarah’s experiences with Extreme Motherhood!™ have flavoured her wild and outrageous stand-up comedy with the faint waft of regurgitated baby food and environmentally friendly re-usable diapers*.
*** Sarah and Baby are now back on full-fat, Pacific-Ocean-clogging disposable nappies, like sane mothers everywhere.
In her teens Sarah studied acting, singing and dancing before her experience at NIDA eventually brought her full circle back to her comedy roots. Sarah has since performed hundreds of shows in Australia and L.A’s premier comedy venues, and has worked on-air at radio stations from Geelong to Newcastle to Sydney – including five years of breakfast radio as star of her own shows.
Sarah was invited by “The Invisible But Very Important Decision Makers” at Foxtel to appear on “Stand Up Australia” for the Comedy Channel, has starred in the sold-out Wild Women of Comedy tours, and has MC’d every type of sport and entertainment event ever conceived my man (and her best guess is that all of these were conceived by men: the KFC 20twenty cricket, the QBE Sydney Swans, and the V8 Supercars).
Between single-handedly destroying the entire planet for all future generations to come in the name of raising just one healthy, well-adjusted, guilt-free child, Sarah played host and “warm-up” act for 2014’s sold-out Puppetry of the Penis tour. (Warm-up. Penis. Get it? Just another little something that could only be conceived by man).
