Emma Zammit was forced to begin a standup comedy career after her sister decided it was time to move her MC Hammer moves and one liners out of the lounge room and enrolled her in a stand up comedy writing course for the sake of family harmony.

After graduation, she was inspired to work the hard yards and tighten her comedy antics on Sydney’s open mic stages.

Emma has won the prestigious “Quest for the Best” new comedy talent search, made it to the state finals “Raw Comedy” and was selected to the MICF’s “Roadshow” and “Comedy Zone”.
