Wayne Deakin


With over 20 years experience roaming the world doing stand up comedy, there’s not many with the breadth of experience as Wayne. Having headlined in over 28 countries, he started out in Australia’s comedy capital, Melbourne.  Within four years he was touring the US with gigs at Carolines, Boston Comedy Club, Gotham, Comic Strip, Montreal Comedy Festival and the world famous “Laff Trax” in Las Vegas.

Needing to spread his wings, Wayne then spent ten years in the UK, based in London and becoming a regular at the Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Glee and Stand Comedy Clubs as well as doing regular tours of the Middle East and Asia.  This sojourn culminated in a very well received Edinburgh Fringe Festival show at the largest arts festival in the world.

Wayne also tours constantly with the Australian and British Military with gigs in East Timor, Sinai, Cyprus, Doha, Dubai,

Afghanistan and Iraq.
