Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann is one of Australia's most experienced and widely travelled comedians.
Aside from regularly headlining the top venues in Australia, Lehmo's extraordinary knack for making people laugh has seen him jet around the world to excite audiences in New York, London, Edinburgh, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpar, Singapore and Hong Kong. Lehmo even made a special trip to the Middle East to entertain the troops. On his return, he treated the Australian public to an highly unique show ‘Christmas in Baghdad’, relaying tales of flying in black hawks over Baghdad, meeting the troops and the locals, while staying in palaces once owned by Saddam Hussein!
Believe it or not, Lehmo started off his professional life as a Chartered Accountant. For many years - he says too many - Lehmo lived his life crunching numbers...until he found the world of entertainment. Now, Lehmo spends his time working as a corporate comedian and MC, as well as entertaining the nation through his regular spot as one of the co-hosts on ‘TripleM’s’ ‘Srive Show’ and ‘Network Ten's’ 'Before the Game’. Other guest spots include ‘Rove Live’ and ‘The Glasshouse’.
His renowned comedic style has led him to sell out events numerous times. This includes the Adelaide Fringe Festival (2000, 2002 and 2004), the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (1999, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005) and the Edinburgh Fringe festival (1996 and 1997).
Always looking to be different and have fun, Lehmo recently broke the ‘Guinness World Record’ for the most jokes told in an hour (549) beating the previous record by 50 jokes.
Overseas demand for Lehmo has seen him appear on England's ‘BBC TV’ ‘Comedy Showcase’ and as a regular compere on Britain's longest running television stand up show ‘Stand up Live’. Lehmo also played himself in a series of ads for ‘XXXX’ beer which were shot in India and screened in the UK.
Having worked as a Chartered Accountant both in Australia and in London before taking up comedy full time to great success, Lehmo is perfectly qualified to perform at Corporate Functions.
