Biography – Richard Stubbs
Richard Stubbs is well known as one of Australia’s finest stand-up comedians. His cutting wit and clever delivery makes for rapid-fire entertainment, and his winning style makes him the most potent force in Australia’s live radio & television market,
The unrivalled success of the Richard Stubbs Breakfast Show on Triple M radio network and TTfm was confirmed by Richard Stubbs’ constant No. 1 ratings during his career in commercial radio.
Educated at Wesley College (School Captain) and Monash University, (Bachelor of Economics) and four years of ‘nose to the grindstone’ for CRA Ltd, Richard Stubbs seemed destined for a successful career in finance…wrong!
After a try out routine at Melbourne’s Last Laugh in 1983, Richard Stubbs’ style of anecdotal comedy, based on real life experience proved an immediate winner. His ability to hold an audience enthralled with his sharp delivery and rapid-fire ad-libs earned him a reputation as the hottest arrival on the comedy scene. Since then, Richard has performed in every comedy room imaginable including those in Montreal, Los Angeles, London, New York and Australia. He has completed sell-out seasons at Melbourne International Comedy Festivals.
Richard Stubbs’ strong sense of understanding the business world has enhanced his ability to perform at a corporate level second to none. A combination of Richard’s brilliant comedic skills blended with his intelligence and knowledge in various fields included economics, law, finance and his awareness in the realms of office procedure and etiquette allows him to contribute as MC, guest speaker or comedian at a function in a completely appropriate manner.
His TV Credits included that of writer, interviewer, co-host, host, actor and comedian! The list of TV credits reads some-what like a TV Guide: Out There, While You’re Down There, The Big Gig, Elton John’s Store, Prime Time, Madonna Special, The Flying Doctors, The Midday Show, The Great TV Game Show, Hey Hey It’s Saturday, The Australian Music Awards, Tonight Live as a regular Host on Friday nights for the run of the show and great success as compere of the RIA Awards, to name but a few.
Richard Stubbs has also been utilised by many companies for their television and radio voice over campaigns including Holeproof, Malt 75 Beer, Metro Bricks, Vicks Vapodrops, Radio Rentals, Autobarn, and many more…
Richard Stubbs’ highly polished live performances were refined even further by the experience he gathered whilst hosting 120 ‘Tonight Live’ shows every Friday evening aired on Channel 7 nationally. This rare expertise has also provided Richard with quick thinking and problem solving techniques. He has the ability to pull an event back into line successfully where most hosts fail.
In 2015 Richard resigned after eleven hugely successful years presenting afternoons on 774 ABC Melbourne.
2016 sees him busier than ever as he returns to stand-up comedy, corporate speaking and a one hour spot on 3AW 2-3pm Saturdays.
