Greg Fleet & Matt Okine
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.
Greg Fleet is one of Australia’s most experienced and popular stand up comics. As a NIDA trained actor Fleety made the plunge into stand up comedy in 1987, starting out as a sit down comic (he was too nervous to stand) at the Prince Patrick Hotel in Melbourne. Since then he has made a name for himself as a consummate performer and writer who merges theatricality and comedy in a way that has put him at the forefront of his craft internationally.
Fleety has appeared on every radio and TV program that matters and has won multiple awards as well as being touted as one of the finest comedians alive today.
