CORINNE GRANT

COMEDIAN / WRITER / ACTOR / BROADCASTER / PRESENTER

 
Corinne got her TV kick-start as a regular Good News Week panellist back in 1999, and in no time became one of the most familiar faces on Australian television.
 
Corinne’s first full time TV gig was as an original cast member of Rove’s first show on Channel Nine, before moving with Rove Live to the Network TEN in 2000. In 2001 she took on a second job as a founding member of ABC TV’s The Glass House continuing with the show until it wrapped in 2006.
 
2006 saw Corinne’s return to the live stage and solo stand up. She performed her show “Faking It” at the Adelaide Fringe and the Melbourne International Comedy Festivals. She also made her international debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a second solo show, “Nice Friendly Lady Hour”.
 
Corinne gave away a decent chunk of her earthly possessions in her 2007 show “Have My Stuff” in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney. “Have My Stuff” will also be immortalised in a book to be published by Allen and Unwin. 2008 sees Corinne debut yet another brand new live show, “Out Of Order” at the Adelaide Fringe, followed by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
