Heralded as a “post-modern Barry Humphries” by The Australian, Asher Treleaven is one of the most unique comedians in Australia with his bizarre blend of physical comedy, stand up and socio-political satire. After graduating from the National Institute of Circus Arts, Asher has performed at comedy festivals all over Australia including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
In 2009 with the assistance of a Moosehead Grant, he earned a nomination for the 2009 Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Then in 2010, Asher won The Age Critics Choice Award and garnered a Best Newcomer nomination at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
