Grahame Bond is one of Australia’s most prolific, influential and best-loved personalities, entertaining and informing Australians for over thirty years. In his own words, he’s been ‘trapped in the As’ – architecture, academia, acting, advertising, amateur archaeology and of course, Aunty Jack on ABC.
Grahame began his career in entertainment at Sydney University in the 60s as a founding student member of the Architecture Review. Things took off in 1971 when he created the ground-breaking ABC comedy series ‘Aunty Jack,’ which was followed by ‘Flash Nick from Jindavick,’ ‘Wollongong the Brave,’ and the ‘Off Show.’ In 1977, Aunty Jack appeared on British television in ‘Not the Aunty Jack Show’ on LWT.
Grahame has won numerous awards, including a ‘Logie’ for Best Australian Comedy (Aunty Jack), and an ‘Awgie’ Award from the Australian Writer’s Guild in Recognition for his Contribution to Australian Comedy.
In 1990, Grahame opened his own advertising agency ‘Bond Strohfeldt’, before selling up in 1996 to travel and make documentaries. After a 6 year stint as Architect on ‘Better Homes and Gardens’, Grahame moved on to host his own show ‘Whose House is it Anyway?’ on the Seven Network.
Grahame’s experience as an architect, writer, comedian, performer, television presenter, musician and budding archaeologist, as well as his infectious enthusiasm and sense of humour, make him an entertaining, inspiring and thought-provoking speaker or Master of Ceremonies for your special events.

"It is wonderful that even today, with all the competition of radio, television, films, and records, the book has kept its precious character. A book is somehow sacred. A dictator can kill and maim people, can sink to any kind of tyranny and only be hated. But when books are burnt the ultimate in tyranny has happened. This we cannot forgive."
John Steinbeck; Nobel Prize speech 1962
