Versatile humourist and entertainer.


Michael Pope holds a unique place in the Australian entertainment industry. A former TV presenter himself, Michael has been the first choice for audience warm-up since 1990 and has worked on more studio audience-based programs than anyone else. Whether it’s the raucous noise of The Footy Show crowd, or the more intimate audience of Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell transforming a disparate group of 200 into one cohesive audience is what Michael does better than anyone else through his energy, quick wit and great sense of fun.

It is this same sense of entertainment that he brings to his corporate work, whether it be as MC of an Awards Night, Gala Dinner, as conference facilitator or any event where an audience gathers. In addition, Michael can perform any number of 'acts' ranging from five to 45 minutes.
