Greg Larsen

Greg Larsen is a multi-award-winning actor, writer, and director who has worked for ten years creating live stage shows, as well as content for TV and online.

Greg began his career writing YouTube sketches and performing stand-up comedy in Brisbane in 2008. After touring around the country performing live and amassing millions of views online, Greg moved to Melbourne. This is where he achieved critical acclaim for a stage show that he co-created and directed Fancy Boy Variety Show. This was a sell-out show at the 2014 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and not only got five-star reviews, but also won the Golden Gibbo Award for best independent comedy.

Since winning that award Greg went on to appear as an actor in numerous projects such as Dirty Laundry Live, How Not to Behave, and The Let Down, and was also given the chance to co-write, and co-star in a Fancy Boy TV series. One episode from that series went on to win the Australian Writer’s Guild Award for best sketch comedy in 2017.

Greg has also achieved more online and live success with parody group: True Australian Patriots. Consisting of himself, Anne Edmonds, and Damien Power, they produced dozens of viral videos, were featured on The Weekly, and performed a live show in the Brisbane, and Melbourne Comedy Festivals. This show went on to win the 2016 Director’s Choice Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Since then Greg has had numerous credits to his name. He has written and performed on the acclaimed ABC comedy Get Krack!n, and was also the co-writer of two episodes of Ronny Chieng: International Student, which was a Comedy Central/ABC co-production and has also aired on the BBC.

Most recently, Greg was one of the four reporters on the ABC’s Tonightly with Tom Ballard. In his role as a daily reporter Greg wrote, performed, directed, and oversaw the edit of daily video packages.
