Graduating from Monash University, (Bachelor of Economics) and four years of office life, Richard seemed destined for a successful career in finance…wrong!
After a try out routine at Melbourne’s Last Laugh in 1983, Richard Stubbs’ style of anecdotal comedy, based on real life experience proved an immediate winner. His ability to hold an audience enthralled with his laugh packed stories earned him a reputation as the hottest arrival on the comedy scene. Since then, Richard has performed in every comedy room imaginable including those in Montreal, Los Angeles, London, New York and throughout Australia. Over the years he has completed sell-out seasons at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
His skills now are better than ever, with successful 2017 and 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival shows.
Plague permitting (?) Richard happily tours anywhere, Gold Coast, Adelaide ,Perth and throughout regional Victoria . His gigs range from huge Conferences to comedy bars and clubs. “I just love being back doing stand-up “he says “I’m constantly working , and I’m trying to make each performance better than the last”
In addition to stand up, Richard has an amazing radio career starting in 1984 on 3XY.
He became a household name after nine years on Triple M, his morning and breakfast shows dominating the ratings.
