Comedy, Hosts/MC's, Media
Starting out in cabaret as part of Newcastle’s Castanet Club, Mikey Robins made the transition to radio and television to become one of Australia’s best-loved, intelligent and in-demand entertainers on the strength of clever observations, quick one-liners and brilliant, biting banter.
Mikey spent seven years behind the microphone as the host of Triple J’s national breakfast show before becoming a team leader and audience favourite on high rating Good News Week and its various franchises.
On radio, Mikey has also worked for Triple M and Vega, while his other television appearances include The Jesters, You Have Been Watching and regular guest spots on Sunrise, Spicks and Specks and The Fat.
Mikey has also devised and hosted a series of documentaries about Australians and their favourite pubs for Channel 10 – leading to episodes being filmed overseas – and fronted shows for the Foxtel network, including Campaign and Hollywood Head To Head.
Mikey has co-authored the books Three Beers and a Chinese Meal (with Helen Razor) and Big Man’s World (with Tony Squires and The Sandman) and written columns for The Daily Telegraph, GQ and Men’s Style.
Yet Mikey comes to his own on the live stage, where he is able to bring an audience to its feet, its senses, and its knees – comedically speaking, of course – whether serving as an MC, public speaker, debater or comic.
"Mikey’s wit, timing and professionalism are fantastic!"
