There are very few new voices on the Australian comedy scene as distinctive and exciting as Lewis Garnham.

Since representing his home state of South Australia at the 2016 RAW Comedy National Final, Lewis has been captivating audiences with a style that is a potent combination of laconic, intelligent and introspective.

In 2017 Lewis was nominated for Best Emerging Artist at the Adelaide Fringe for his show “The World I Live In”. He followed it up in 2018 with his breakout show “The Smartest Idiot You’ll Ever Meet”, which was nominated for Best Comedy at Perth Fringe World and the prestigious Best Newcomer Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Lewis returned to Australian festivals in 2019 with “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, a hilarious, ambitious and self-assured hour that regularly played to sold out houses. He also was featured on the annual Triple J Breakfast “Good Az Friday” show at the Melbourne Town Hall, where he smashed a comedy spot that has racked up over 100,000 views on Triple J’s Facebook page.

As well as seeing him on stage, you may have heard Lewis on radio around the country. He has regularly appeared on stations such as Triple J, Triple M, and 2GO Central Coast.

Recently, Lewis has become interested in birdwatching and wishes to become Australia’s least pretentious and obsessive twitcher.
