Wayne Deakin headlines all the big Australian clubs and tours across North America but is based in London (“It’s just simple economics. Britain’s where they’ll spend every red cent they’ve got on booze and entertainment.” ) His amiable, laconic style works to draw you in but there’s plenty of biting social commentary here too, so Wayne will have you both laughing and thinking.
New York tours have included Carolines, New York’s premier comedy venue and headlining the New York Improv. Besides being known for his Melbourne Comedy Festival shows, Wayne has also appeared at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival as well as sevan nights performing in Vegas.
Wayne also tours with the Australian Defence Forces and British Army in East Timor, Sinai, Cyprus and various tours of the Middle East, Iraq and Afghanistan. Scary but edifying, these remain career highlights.
Wayne starred in and produced Channel 31’s highest ever rating show, Tiger TV, appeared in Comedy Channel’s “Stand Up Australia” and US reality show “Last Comic Standing”.
Wayne is currently campaigning to have Prince Phillip made Prime Minister.
