Its been a brilliant couple of years for Geraldine Hickey.
Gez’s deceptively effortless knack for turning low-key yarns about agapanthuses and bouncy-castles into high-stakes, endlessly funny narrative rollercoasters culminated in her Most Outstanding Show award at the 2021 Melbourne Comedy Festival.
A firm favourite of and in the Australian comedy scene, Geraldine’s 2019 show Things Are Going Well received a nomination for the Melbourne Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show, while she also took home the coveted comedians’ choice Piece of Wood Award. Things Are Going Well is available as a podcast special on your ABC: you can listen here.
From 2016 to 2021 Geraldine was a co-host on the much-revered breakfast radio show Breakfasters on RRR, and has made multiple appearances on ABC Radio, Triple M and the Hit Network. Geraldine has appeared on The Project, Have You Been Paying Attention? and Hughesy, We Have a Problem.
Gez also stars as Dr Stephanie Huddleston in Metro Sexual – a mockumentary series set in a sexual health clinic in which her warmth and deadpan style shine through every consultation. A new series of Metro Sexual aired on 9Go! in Australia and via OutTV internationally in late 2021.
Her award-winning stand up show What A Surprise is available to stream on Paramount Plus.
'It’s testament to the way Hickey builds her set with calm elan that she can have a full Supper Room crowd heaving back and forth on their seats within the first 10 minutes. ★★★★★' The Age
