Merry Meredith takes the mick-ey
Meredith (pictured) has always had a deep-set love for stand-up comedy. Since finding the balls to give it a crack back in the 1990s at the legendary Harold Park Hotel in Sydney and at RSL talent contests, Meredith has done the rounds for more than a decade professionally, appearing at or headlining every major comedy venue in Australia. One of the country’s more versatile stand-up comics, Meredith has performed for our troops in East Timor, Cyprus and the Middle East and made several appearances on a bunch of radio segments and TV shows. He’s also dabbled in acting, playing the main role in comedy horror flick Bloody Hell and landing a small part in Khoa Do’s Footy Legends. But wait! There’s more. Meredith has also directed music film clips and short films for Tropfest and released two albums and a live DVD. Best described as laidback and cheeky, his stand-up style is razor sharp and loveable.
Mick Meredith headlines Comedy in The Basement, at The Arts Centre Gold Coast, tomorrow at 8pm. Tickets are $22.
