Comic radio and television performer


Matt Tilley is one of Australia’s most respected comedic radio personalities, with more than 25 successful years on air.

Current work

Matt’s engaging manner, versatility and quick wit have also made him a much sought-after MC and host. He has twice hosted the Australian radio awards (The ACRAS) and numerous corporate events - for clients ranging from major international companies to AFL clubs. He has also hosted well over 200 charity events, where his skills have extended to both loose-animal wrangler and auctioneer, the two things sometimes being the same task!

Previous experience

TV: Matt’s quick wit has seen him both host and appear on various comedy and entertainment TV shows across all the major networks and several pay TV channels. His outrageously funny Gotcha Calls have spawned Four Successful CDs; Cereal Pest (2005), Cereal Pest - the double album (2006), Three’s a Crowd (2007) and The Final Call (2009). Sales of the CDs raised over $500,000 for Women’s and Children’s hospital charities and other charitable causes. The Gotcha Calls were a national hit across Austereo’s Today Network stations and Triple M in Sydney.

Film: Matt’s voice has also featured as Zeke on the award-winning kids cartoon and movie feature Dogstar. His many character voices and impersonations have also featured on various platforms - from Neighbours to beer ads to inflight entertainment.

Radio:For the past twenty five years or so Matt has been a part of Melbourne’s breakfast radio landscape, including well over a decade as No. 1 with Tracy and Matt in the Morning and the long running Matt and Jo Show on Fox FM. More recently he has worked with Jane Hall and Meshel Laurie at KIIS FM and hosted his own show Nova 100 with Matt Tilley in the Morning 9-12 weekdays.

Talking Points


There’s so many self-help books and Mummy blogs and Daddy groups that one of the true arts of parenting is in danger of being lost. How to really annoy your kids. Helpful tips, practical steps and many anecdotes to help you regain the upper hand. Don’t just save up all your angst and fury for an empty will - you need plenty of victories along the way. It’s in the Bible, do unto your kids as you would have them do unto you. Or as I prefer to say in a kid friendly way… ”THEY STARTED IT!!!”

Working in the Media

After nearly three decades in commercial radio there’s not a Prime Minister or Kardashian or fallen sports star with a book to pedal that Matt hasn’t interviewed. But what goes on behind the scenes with the rich and famous. What do the publicists say before you walk in the room? Which questions have to be removed before the interview goes to air? Who lies straight to your face? And which Hollywood A-lister blew their nose and just threw the tissue on the floor. So many stories, and Matt’s happy to share them all. Off the record, of course.


When people think of the sublime endurance efforts of the world’s most elite road cyclists as they climb mountain after mountain, in searing heat, for three weeks on end…they think of one thing. Drugs. Surely. Bags of them no doubt. Well Matt’s got the stories to back up the titillation. Take a look at the quirky side of the Tour de France and cycling in general, as the chaotic and the idiotic collide at top speed!

Team Work

After nearly 14 years at the very top of the highly competitive brekky radio market in Melbourne, you’d think Matt’s ego might be burnt out. But it’s not. So why not let one more idiot tell you what it takes to create a successful team. Particularly when there’s no other members of the team there to question his dubious recollections. It’s a unique perspective that doesn’t include one SWOT analysis and has a refundable guarantee that you won’t learn something you didn’t not already know. That’s got you thinking already, right?
