Matt Okine, began his career in 2004, at the age of 18 when he became a National finalist for Triple J’s Raw Comedy competition.
He then took out the Brisbane New Comic of the Year competition, in 2006 and performed on “Rove Live” which preceded his sell-out run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival (2008). He was then chosen to be part of NBC’s hit show, “Last Comic Standing” and since has supported the likes of Dave Chappelle and Aziz Ansari.
Matthew’s skills don’t lie solely in the world of comedy. He graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting) and has appeared countless times on Australian Television, from Channel 7’s All Saints and Nickelodeon’s H20 to ABC2’s “I Rock”, and SBS’s “The Squiz”.
Early in 2014 Matt joined the Triple J breakfast team reinforcing the upward trajectory of his popularity.
With over 20 years in the business Dave has established himself as one of Australia’s most sought after acts. He’s a veteran of fringe and comedy festivals both here and abroad, having starred in both one man and ensemble shows.
With a solid background in acting, Dave uses strong characters and has a tendency to improvise lending his show a distinctly theatre flavour and his ability to adapt his performance from pubs and clubs to theatre and television ensures Dave will continue to be one of Australia’s best comic talents.
He is fun, full of energy and always a crowd pleaser.
