Hello and welcome to the website of gangly praying mantis like comedian Asher Treleaven. Since his debut in 2008 Asher has become one of the most critically acclaimed comedians in Australia winning awards in Australia and Edinburgh.Critics have described him as a ‘post modern Barry Humphries’ ‘not as good as John Cleese’ and ‘like watching a spider in a microwave.’ So If you like your comedy carefully balanced somewhere between socially responsible rhetoric and cock jokes you’re in the right place.
This year during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival I was lucky enough to be part of the late night comedy series for ABC-2, ‘Comedy Up Late’. Here I am talking gay hats, Mt Isa and my favourite things. You can watch my spot below or the whole episode here.
