Anne ‘Eddo’ Edmonds is one of Australia’s most exciting stand-up, character and banjo-playing comedians. Since bursting onto the scene in 2010, she has brought her exquisitely incisive characters, songs and worldview to TV (Have You Been Paying Attention?, Hughesy We Have A Problem, as host of this year’s MICF Opening All Stars Gala), to clubs and to comedy festivals around Australia and all over the world.
After a sold-out season and a prestigious peer award win at MICF, Anne took her show, You Know What I’m Like, to London’s Soho Theatre in January 2016. She toured her Barry-nominated show – That’s Eddotainment – around Australia, stole the show in ABC TV’s Fancy Boy and won the 2016 MICF Director’s Choice Award in with the True Australian Patriots.
No Offence, None Taken saw her nominated again for the Barry Award in 2017, and she followed it up with a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe and a return to London’s Soho Theatre. The Edge of the Bush, the series she created, wrote and stars in for ABC TV, debuted in September 2017 to critical acclaim.
Anne’s appearances as beauty and fashion expert Helen Bidou on Get Krack!n must be seen to be believed. Her live show Helen Bidou: Enter the Spinnaker Lounge, garnered Eddo her third Barry nod, and a Best Comedy Performer nomination at this year’s Helpmann Awards.
