FTI are pleased to announce that comedian Joel Creasey is the official host of the 27th West Australian Screen Awards (WASAs).
The sell-out comedian, originally from Perth, expressed his enthusiasm of returning to his hometown to host the highly anticipated event. “I’m so excited to return home to host the WA Screen Awards. I’m going to approach hosting the night in the way Meryl Streep approaches an acceptance speech – confident, breathy and a little smug… I’ll obviously be bringing my headshot and CV in the hope of snagging a role too!” Said Creasey.
Australia’s “Acid Tongue Prince”, Creasey has recently completed a stellar season of his sold out show The Hurricane across Australia in 2015. Having burst onto the scene at the tender age of 19, he is now one of the best known, hottest and most sought-after comedians in Australia – and he’s still only 24 years old!Creating controversy yet winning legions of new fans wherever he goes, in only a short time Joel has built a huge following that is rapidly growing both nationally and internationally. Fans everywhere are falling in love with his intelligent observations, acerbic style, pop-culture expertise and unrivalled story telling abilities.
Australian comedian and entertainer Joel Creasey will return home to WA this year to host the 27 Annual WA Screen Awards.
A seasoned host and entertainer, Creasey expressed his excitement at helping WA filmmakers celebrate their hard work. “Western Australians are brilliant, creative people and I can’t wait to be part of a night honouring their work. I might even spray paint my entire body gold so I look like an Oscar.”
The 27th WASAs will be held on Monday 29 June 2015 at the prestigious Heath Ledger Theatre at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia.
The 2015 red carpet event will feature VIP guests, delicious canapés and premium beverages.
