Lehmo is one of Australia's most experienced and widely travelled comedians. Aside from regularly headlining the top venues in Australia, Lehmo's extraordinary knack of making people laugh has seen him jet around the world to excite audiences in New York, London, Edinburgh, Johannesburg, Toronto, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Lehmo has also made multiple trips to the Middle East to entertain the troops and broke the Guinness World Record for the most jokes told in an hour (549) beating the previous record by 50 jokes.
Lehmo has just completed a lengthy stint as co-host of the TripleM national drive show with Wil Anderson and before that he was co-host of the highly successful breakfast radio show at SAFM in Adelaide, Milly & Lehmo. During this period Lehmo met and interviewed some of the biggest stars in the world including Dave Grohl, Pink, Hugh Jackman, Jerry Lewis, Bon Jovi, Juliette Lewis and the list goes on.
Lehmo is probably best known as co-host of Australia's most loved AFL football show 'Before the Game'. Along with co-hosts Dave Hughes, Mick Molloy, Sam Lane, Andy Maher, and Peter Helliar, Lehmo has watched the show become much loved appointment viewing for Australia's lovers of AFL football.
“Lehmo is a fantastic personality to work with and ensured that the our dinner was a huge success, I would recommend him to any organisation looking to put some fun and enthusiasm into an evening.”
Greg Stirling, Senior Brand Manager, Jacob’s Creek Wines
“Lehmo is to be congratulated for his preparation and delivery as it resulted in a super gig and we had lots of positive feedback from a potentially tough audience. At a charity golf day there was nothing below par in Lehmo’s performance! We greatly appreciate his support for our Foundation and do not take this for granted. He will do us any day.”
Mark McGill, General Manager, McGuinness McDermott Foundation
“I have been meaning to email you all day to thank both you and Lehmo. I’m pretty sure it was the most successful event in the 2 years the Committee has been organising these functions in terms of numbers attending, and we received lots of positive feedback afterwards. I think all of us could relate to some of the things Lehmo dreaded about being a ‘professional’, which made the talk relevant as well as very funny.”
Stephanie Burke, Young Professionals of South Australia
“A seasoned performer on the comedy circuit, Lehmo does not disappoint. His show is a safe bet for quality entertainment he gives a relaxed performance and interacts with the audience. After starting with some improvised material, Lehmo goes into his ‘confessions’, where he recounts a series of stories from his time growing up in the country and entering the comedy profession. He gives a polished performance which leaves the audience all smiles.”
Dale Clarke, The Messenger
“Lehmo’s Fringe show, ‘Confessions of a Harmless Mind’, was funnier than a woman with a bottle on her head (if you don’t get the joke, you better go see his show). Lehmo exceeds expectations with a natural stage presence and plenty of gags from his own experience. Performed upstairs at the Rhino Room, the intimate setting created a bond between performer and audience, which Lehmo used well to his advantage. Refreshing and funny, one of the funniest moments of this show was a clip of Lehmo’s short stint on ‘Red Faces’ a year or two ago. Lehmo’s strength is storytelling, rather than jokes with punch lines, and by avoiding bad language and sexual innuendo he reaches a broad spectrum of people.”
Bonnie Hallion, Independent Weekly (Indaily)
“Lehmo is one of Adelaide’s favourite funny men, and it’s not hard to see why. He’s Aussie, he’s confident, and he’s willing to take the piss out of himself. ‘Confessions’ is a litany of embarrassing anecdotes of the ‘of course, I was drunk at the time’ variety. Anyone who likes beer and footy and blokey banter will love it - and there is something in it for the rest of us as well. Lehmo’s trip down the shame file in memory lane includes an appearance on ‘Hey Hey It’s Saturday’s Red Faces’ – it’s a corker of a confession. Upstairs at the Rhino Room is a cosy little spot for humiliating revelations.”
Tory Shepherd, The Advertiser
“It’s true what Lehmo said: many of life’s tragedies, mishaps or faux pas can be turned into great dinner party conversation. But for a comedian, that same mishap can become ten minutes of hilarious comedy, and Lehmo isn’t holding back at all as he confesses some of the more stupid moments of his life. Sharing some footage of a ‘Hey, Hey, It’s Saturday Red Faces’ appearance was funny, but his reasons behind doing it in the first place were even more amusing. Lehmo shared some of the mastermind ideas that teenage boys can come up with for a slice of drunken fun, and even confessed a 14-year-old ripper secret that had everyone in stitches. But, if you want to see the biggest confession of them all, head to his show on Wed Mar 21 when the mate he’s been keeping the secret from will actually be in the audience. What a hoot!”
Rip It Up
“A rare talent who hits the target every time - Lehmo hands out the laughs in an inspired and memorable fashion.”
The List, Glasgow
“With serious questions being asked of the motivations behind the war in Iraq, Lehmo’s show is not only timely, but also insightful, political and hysterical.”
