Eddie Perfect 

Eddie Perfect is one of Australia’s most diverse, respected and prolific writer/composer/performers, having made his mark in the fields of comedy, music theatre composition, playwriting, screenwriting, classical music, jazz and acting for stage and screen. Perhaps best known for his TV portrayal of Mick Holland on Channel Ten’s Offspring and as the new host of Play School, Eddie has won multiple awards for his work both as a performer and a writer.

His stage credits include Baz Luhrmann and Global Creatures’ Strictly Ballroom; Malthouse Theatre Company (Babes In The Wood, Drink Pepsi Bitch, The Big Con); Shane Warne The Musical; Keating! The Musical; Songs From The Middle in collaboration with ANAM, Iain Grandage and the UK’s Brodsky Quartet; Victorian Opera’s The Threepenny Opera; and Opera Australia’s South Pacific. His solo music comedy shows (Angry Eddie, Drink Pepsi Bitch, Misanthropology) have received Helpmann and Green Room Awards, touring Australia, New Zealand, Edinburgh and London. Eddie is currently co-Artistic Director of Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
