Peter Berner is without doubt one of Australia’s most popular and respected media entertainers, stand-up comics and corporate performers.
Peter started his career as a stand up comic in 1988. Since this time he has performed locally and internationally, as well as writing and performing solo comedy shows in festivals in Australia and the UK. His intelligent humour has always set him apart as one performer who can comfortably straddle comedy styles as disparate as satire, observational comedy and reactive comedy with ease leaving audiences in hysterics. His comedy has also proven to translate into electronic media, with Peter constantly employed on both TV and radio since 2000.
Peter’s major TV Hosting roles have been “BackBerner” and “Einstein Factor” both on ABCTV (all up he has presented more than 300 hours of national television!), and he’s been a valued, successful and integral member of Triple M’s talent base for the past 10 years.
Michael Hing is a stand-up comedian and definitely a grown-up. He is too self-conscious and insecure to write a serious bio but he certainly can hide many of his achievements in amongst hurtful, largely self-sabotaging prose, with more unwieldy irony than quite frankly you or anyone else in the entertainment industry would ever be comfortable with. (Please employ him).
He was slated to appear at the invite-only World’s Funniest Island Comedy Festival before the entire operation went bankrupt due to poor business decisions such as inviting Michael Hing (with his, honestly, less-than-broad appeal) to perform at this event. He has also lost the prestigious Raw Comedy Competition several times (twice as a NSW State-Finalist) and it is now at the point where annually, the organizers actually plead with him not to enter, and (like a true gentleman) every year he obliges them.
“Michael isn’t so much telling jokes anymore as he is dealing with his issues.”
“Michael King was fantastic!“
