Booking Lehmo for your workshop brings laughter to long days, puts comedy into corporate life and gets the fun back in business.

Lehmo is one of Australia’s most experienced and well travelled comedians. Lehmo’s live work has seen him headline at comedy clubs for well over ten years and work all corners of the globe – USA, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Lehmo has also become Australia’s number one ‘combat comic’, having completed four ‘tours of duty’ performing for our troops abroad. These tours have seen Lehmo perform in army bases in East Timor, Iraq, Kuwait, UAE, Afghanistan and two secret countries he’s not allowed to name!!

Lehmo has performed for businesses large and small throughout Australia and South East Asia. These functions have included AGMs, team bonding days, Christmas dinners, conferences and the list goes on. Having spent ten years working in the corporate world as a chartered accountant Lehmo is perfectly qualified for any such function. Lehmo knows exactly what it takes to put a smile on a corporate face. He’s even completed an entire festival show on the subject – the very successful “Taxing Lyrical”.

Lehmo currently hosts the very successful FM radio breakfast show in Melbourne from 6am to 9am every weekday morning; he keeps Melbourne laughing (and sometimes crying) with his unique brand of humour. Lehmo is currently a panellist on the very popular network 10 AFL show “Before The Game” and a regular presenter on the CH 10 evening news program, “The Project”.

Lehmo can be added to any of our workshops at any of the program destinations.
