Paul Calleja

Paul Calleja makes funny look easy with his affable, cutting edge wit and laid back style.

He is in strong demand as a one of Australia’s top television comedy writers and performers, and was one of the creative minds behind Network Ten’s hit football show Before The Game.

Paul has also written for and appeared on Statesmen of Comedy (The Comedy Channel) hosted by Trevor Marmalade, Rove Live ( Network Ten ), Mick Molloy’s The Nation (Nine Network), The Jimeoin Show (Seven Network), Skithouse, The Russell Gilbert Show and adding to the list he was the ‘Studs and Duds’ expert on Supercoach (Fox Footy)

Paul co-wrote the biography of fictitious footy star Strauchanie – Bryan Strauchan- My Story, with Peter Helliar, and has contributed to several other humorous books.

Paul continues to be a regular on the stand up circuit. His material follows a reasonable logic to bizarre conclusions.  Hilariously deadpan!

“A stand-out stand-up comedian”-Fiona Scott-Norman, The Age

“His insights on life are both witty and clever”-Angela Crocombe, Spin Out

“Worked the crowd like a dream”- Barbara Biggs, Herald Sun
