Richard
Wilkins

Popular media personality.

Profile

You've seen the TV shows, watched the interviews, read the book and the newspaper and magazine columns, heard the radio chat and all the gossip, now hear the stories live!

Current work

Now following the publication of his best-selling book Black Ties, Red Carpets, Green Rooms and the celebration of his 25 Years at Channel 9, Richard is hitting the speaking circuit to take audiences behind the scenes, on location, into the studios, onto the red carpet and into a secret world only a few ever get to witness, offering a rare and unique glimpse into the world of the rich and famous.

Previous experience

Australia's number one entertainment personality Richard Wilkins has spent his life in the spotlight; singing solo with the church choir, leading the school orchestra, gaining pop-stardom in New Zealand, gigging with Grace Jones in Australia, launching MTV Australia, travelling the world to meet the biggest names in the industry. From touring New Zealand in the back of a van seeking fame and fortune to first class jaunts around the world in search of rock gods, movie stars and supermodels, it really has been a 'life in the fast lane'.

Richard has truly 'seen it all' and offers a rare insight to the world of showbiz and the cult of celebrity.

Of course there are other sides to Richard. At age 18, he became father to a son with Down Syndrome, Adam, and since then his life has taken many unexpected turns.

Richard's stories are brutally honest, self-deprecating and absolutely hilarious, as he lifts the lid on the world of entertainment, takes questions and dishes the dirt!

Awards: In 2014 Richard was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for "significant service to the community through a range of charities, and to the entertainment industry."
