"Fleety" began his acting career in the early 1980s with several performances in Australian television series and telemovies. He starred in Matthew and Son alongside Nicole Kidman in 1984, and then played the role of "Delivery Man 2" in an episode of Prisoner in 1985. Fleet went on to star as Lt Scott Harris in the Australian miniseries A Thousand Skies.
In 1988, after a guest appearance in The Flying Doctors, Fleet took on the role of Dave Summers in the Australian soap Neighbours. His most dramatic sequence in this program involved killing the popular character of Daphne in a car accident. Fleet then appeared in the popular Australian sketch show Full Frontal.
Since then, Fleet has been a regular stand-up comedian around Australia, and has appeared on many TV and radio comedy programs, including The Comedy Channel's Stand Up Australia! He was the announcer and narrator for the comedy series Real Stories (Network Ten), and has provided the voice of "Sandy" the Yellow Labrador in TV commercials for the Home Hardware retail chain.
From 2006 - 2007, Fleet was often heard on Triple M's Get This radio program as a frequent guest co-host alongside Tony Martin, Ed Kavalee, and Richard Marsland.
In 2011, Fleet released Bootlegs and Jumperpants DVD, containing segments of some of his best known performances.
In 2015, Fleet starred in the Australian cult-classic underground zombie comedy film Me and My Mates vs the Zombie Apocalypsealongside fellow Australian comedians Jim Jefferies and Alex Williamson.
Fleet is also an accomplished writer, having released Thai Die (2002) and memoir These Things Happen (2015).

Elegant, outrageous and sweet, Claire Hooper is one of the funniest, most dearly loved comics in Australia. Carved to be a performer by her vary nature, she used to do theater for kids and adults even before she became a successful standup comedian. Born in Perth, she has started her comedy career as recently as 2004, and has already become a respected name in the Oz comedy circuit. When Claire is coming to your show, throngs of spectators precede her and jam the venue before she has it bursting at the seams with laughter. Contact us now to hire this amazing artist for your comedy event.
Janelle Koenig has been funny since – well – birth but her career in comedy started more than 12 years ago when she was discovered at the inaugural Jeez Louise Funny Women’s Forum.
Since this auspicious event she’s gone on to work with some of the best in the business – Carl Barron, Dave Hughes, Jo Stanley, Joel Creasey and…err…Warwick Capper – to name drop a few.
She’s performed at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Melbourne Fringe Festival, the first St Kilda Laugh Fest and the Brisbane Impro Fest, Perth Fringeworld and the Perth Comedy Festival.
Brilliant, nonsensical, John Conway's post modernist shtick is ever entertaining, from the stage to his raucous late-night variety show John Conway Tonight.
