Kirsty Webeck

Kirsty Webeck Newcastle Comedy Festival 2024

Kirsty wins fans and hearts everywhere she goes with her upbeat and relatable brand of comedy that is often described as playful, light-hearted and fun. A gifted storyteller, she has a natural ability for turning the mundane into the hilarious and has quickly become one of the most popular Australian comedians in the industry.

Kirsty entered the Australian comedy circuit in 2013 in an unconventional way. After doing a five minute set at the end of a comedy workshop she launched straight into writing and performing a full length show. Employing her public relations background she sold over 100 tickets to her first major performance in her hometown, Canberra. No stranger to hard work, Kirsty, used this show as a launching pad to build a professional stand up career from the ground up over the next few years.

Recently, her career has grown exponentially, cementing her as a regular fixture on the Australian comedy circuit. She’s toured Australia with Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, appeared on the Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow in 2021, 2022 and 2023, performed on the Sydney and Perth Comedy Festival opening night galas and hosted the comedy stage at The Falls Festival in Byron Bay.

She’s a regular guest on ABC radio and comedy podcasts across the country. ​

Her TV appearances include Tonightly with Tom Ballard, Metrosexual, How To Stay Married, SBS’ Celebrity Letters and Numbers, The Weekly with Charlie Pickering, The ABC’s Question Everything Seasons 2 and 3, Channel 10’s Just For Laughs, The Project and Today Extra.

Her many corporate event credits include hosting Women’s Agenda’s Annual Women in Leadership Awards 2022 and 2023 and the Victorian Pride Awards 2023.

Her first stand up comedy special ‘Silver Linings’ was released on Paramount Plus in November 2022.
