Corporate entertainment



If comedy didn't exist, Peter Helliar would be in a lot of trouble. Pete was born to be a comedian, he has no choice - he is compelled. Pete spent many of his younger years involved in amateur theatre and community radio before he decided to try his hand as a stand up in 1996. It was a fait accompli that Pete would become one of the most talked about comics. Peter of course is now regularly featured on Rove live.



Vince is one of Australia's best-known and leading comic entertainers. No comic is more in demand for everything from after dinner speaking to product launches, sports hospitality, awards ceremonies and any manner of corporate, fundraising, sporting or public event. Vince performs around 200 shows a year in Australia and overseas. There is only one comic or hosting option for premier events - Vince Sorrenti. Vince has a long history of experience, cutting his teeth in Architecture Revues in the early 1980s and in the burgeoning stand up comedy scene that he helped create. After graduating as an Architect in 1985 he threw full weight behind his real talent and has performed to ecstatic crowds on thousands of stages all over the world. He has hosted TV programs in Australia and the United States, appeared in movies, released comedy albums, performed in festivals, and been a guest on countless talk and variety programs. He has thrice won the Mo Award as Australia's best comic.
Vince has demonstrated his versatility over the years being everything from a sports commentator for the Rugby World Cup on the Seven Network to a debating captain on shows like Good News Week. This has been the key to his popularity on live stages at a blinding array of events. He is hilarious as hundreds of testimonials and a staggering amount of repeat work testifies. Since immersing himself in the world of corporate entertainment Vince has become the yardstick all corporate entertainers are measured by. Can you afford not to use Vince?



When she's not dancing under burst water hydrants in her white bikini, chances are you'll find Janelle Koenig on a comedy stage somewhere.
Janelle is one of Melbourne's fastest-rising comedians. She was discovered at the Jeez Louise Funny Women's Forum of October 2002, and hasn't looked back - mainly because she hasn't had time. In 2003 she was voted King (although she insists it's Queen) of the Ring at the Comic's Lounge, became a State Finalist in the 2003 Raw Comedy Competition, became a core player with Melbourne's longest-running improvisational comedy group, The Crew, and filmed the 8-part impro series 'Instant T.V.'. Janelle was also selected by Australian comedy legend Richard Stubbs to support him throughout his entire sell out 2003 Melbourne International Comedy Festival show, 'Richard Stubbs Comperes Le Joke'.
2004 was just as busy, beginning with Janelle and The Crew performing at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Janelle writing, producing and performing in her first Melbourne Comedy Festival show, 'Not Drowning, Dating' with comedian Jon Levene, and coming second nationally in both the 'You've Got To Be Joking' (judge-voted) and 'Green Faces'(audience-voted) comedy competitions. 2004 also saw Janelle perform on the Comic's Lounge DVD, Channel 31's Champagne Comedy, record a second series of Instant T.V. and become a member of 3MDR's Cubbyhouse weekly comedy radio show crew, plus writing and performing in 'The Brothers MacKenzie' for the Melbourne Fringe Festival. God knows where she got the time to buy all those shoes.
In addition to the commitments of The Crew, The Cubbyhouse and a hectic stand-up schedule, 2005 will see Janelle perform in 'Life After Dick' with comedy legends Christine Basil and Bev Killick, and Australian football legend Warwick Capper at the Crown Showroom for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Janelle is an accomplished comedian and a mediocre guitarist. Her unique blend of honest stand-up, cheeky songs and sometimes far too personal tales about all aspects of her own life have made her a favourite amongst Melbourne audiences. She might look innocent - and that's exactly how she gets away with it.



Tracy began performing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980's and is best-known by many until very recently as the host of Melbourne's number one rating FM breakfast program, "Tracy and Matt in the Morning" on Fox FM. Since her departure from FOX, Tracy is now focused on what she loves doing most and that's performing! Tracy has proved to be one of the most powerful voices in Australian radio, however, as a multi-talented performer, the natural progression for Tracy was to write and produce her own shows. This has revealed her diversity as a performer - singer, actor, and comedian - simply an all-round performer who continues to keep her audiences entertained and exploding with laughter!
With her band in tow she performs an eclectic collection of original, cover & jazz songs as only Tracy can, mixing humour with some real vocal dynamics.
Tracy is also a campaigner for animal rights and children's rights - she is an ambassador for Australian's Against Child Abuse. She is also active in women's communities and conducts seminars for stressed out women from all walks of life.

The talent of Steve Bedwell is tremendous, he is a television host, a radio personality, a producer, a director, a ARIA nominated recording artist, an author and a very funny comedian.
Each morning the people of Melbourne wake up to the voice of Steve Bedwell for he is the co-host of the top rating Triple M breakfast show 'Bedder's, Tim & Margie for Breakfast'.
In 1998 Steve found enormous radio success when he moved into the breakfast shift at Triple M Melbourne. This shift is considered one of the top radio positions in the country for a stand up comedian. Teamed up with long time friend Tim Smith they have topped the ratings.
