Harley Breen is easily amongst the most naturally talented stand-up comedy performers working in Australia at the moment.
A Melbourne Comedy Festival favourite, Harley won the prestigious, if ridiculously named, Piece of Wood award at the 2011 Melbourne Comedy Festival for his show I Heart Bunnings. Filming has just completed for a DVD release of Harley’s other award winning show The Kingswood and I.
Harley has performed in literally hundreds of venues and festivals all over Australia, as well as the UK and Asia, working with major local and international talent such as Steven K. Amos, Fiona O’Loughlin, Greg Fleet and Wil Anderson.
He boasts credits on the Comedy Channel and Network Ten’s The Circle and his corporate clients include Nova radio, CCA-Amatil, Panasonic and the Commonwealth Games Cultural Festival.
Harley’s material presents as straight-ahead high quality stand-up, which actually undersells its subtlety. In his sprightly re-enactments of suburban machismo, or the late night frustration of a midnight radio quiz, Harley‘s sharply observed insights into common emotion carry his audiences merrily past his initial clichéd brawn towards a hilarious, shared recognition. With a background in acting and improvisation, and a strong commitment to working in education programmes, Harley is a diverse and deceptively thoughtful comedian.
