Mel Buttle

“Mel proves again to be a solid observational comic with a keen eye for the absurd minutiae of life in contemporary Australia.”
- The Music

Mel Buttle is a hilarious bundle of contradictions, and she’s a package that is rapidly making herself felt in all mediums, right across the country.

Mel has been performing on the live comedy circuit across the country for years. As well as live performance, she is a seasoned writer with a weekly column in The Courier Mail and Mel has been credited for her work on several television shows such as Please Like Me and This Week Live.

You may have seen Mel on ABC TV’s The Weekly with Charlie Pickering, Tractor Monkeys, Back Seat Drivers or It’s A Date as well as Network Ten’s The Project or This Week Live. Mel is also a regular on NZ’s TV3 weekly program 7Days.

In 2015, Mel found out she can have her cake and eat it too scoring the job of co-host on The Great Australian Bake Off for Foxtel’s LifeStyle Channel alongside her friend Claire Hooper and judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran. Bake Off returned for its third season in early 2018.
