Paul Hancock

Since the day in 2001 when Paul delivered a fridge to Sydney’s Nova969 resulting in him landing his first job in the entertainment industry, he has established himself as a professional radio presenter, TV host, voice artist, stand-up comedian, MC and musician.

After climbing the ranks of radio station promotions, Paul became an onair presenter under the nickname “Fridgy”. Five years later and he had presented every radio shift across the day (including being the regular breakfast fill-in) on three different Nova Network stations in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.

While hosting “drive” in Perth, Paul made his first TV appearance on the Perth Telethon panel live on Channel 7. Paul produced and presented a national radio show for the Nova network “The P-Plate Debate”. He got his second taste of national radio after spending fifteen months at Australia’s other primary broadcaster, Austereo (where he hosted shows on 2DayFM and Triple M), during which time he also hosted the famous “National Hot 30 Countdown”.

The opportunity to branch out in to stand-up comedy came when Paul entered Triple J’s RAW comedy competition, making the final after only three comedy appearances. After also becoming a finalist a few weeks later in the Green Faces national comedy competition, Paul instantly became a regular at comedy clubs all over Perth.

Paul moved back to Sydney a few months later as a full-time stand-up comedian where he supported some of Australia’s biggest comedy acts, including Tom Gleeson, Greg Fleet, Julia Morris and Ahn Do. During this time he performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Sydney Cracker Comedy Festival. In 2010 he performed his first live TV comedy spot on Network Ten’s ‘Thursday Night Live’.

Whilst slogging it out in the comedy clubs by night, he began to pursue his career as a voice-artist. Three years later and Paul is a regular promo voice for two TV networks (Network Ten and ABC) and has voiced TV and radio campaigns, corporate videos and animated productions for some of the biggest brands and advertisers in the country including Subway, Coca-Cola, Sony, Optus and many more.

As an accomplished musician, he played in an original rock band for four years on the Sydney and east coast circuit, appearing with the likes of Grinspoon and Lo-tel.

In addition to presenting in corporate videos and television commercials, Paul is also regularly booked as an MC for corporate events and functions including the Sydney Local Business Awards, Fairfax Media and Virgin Mobile.

Paul’s TV career received a huge boost in early 2010 when he was asked to join the Nine Network as the advertorial host for the ever-popular Kerri-Anne Kennerley Show. As a result of this high level of exposure, demand for his wide range of talents has increased to the point where the most often used app on his iPhone has changed from “Angry Birds” to his appointment calendar.

“Paul’s professional, yet casual approach as Master of Ceremonies ensures that every crowd takes an instant liking to him. He has an exceptional talent in being able to read an audience and react to any situation instantly giving him total control of the audience.” Steve Loe - Precedent Productions
