Lehmo is one of Australia’s most experienced and well travelled comedians. Lehmo’s live work has seen him headline at comedy clubs for well over fifteen years and work all corners of the globe – USA, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand.
Lehmo has also become Australia’s number one ‘combat comic’, having completed seven ‘tours of duty’ performing for our troops abroad. These tours have seen Lehmo perform in army bases in East Timor, Iraq, Kuwait, UAE, Afghanistan, Egypt, Qatar and on a number of naval ships around the world.
Lehmo is also a regular on the festival circuit having performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (1996 and 1997), the Adelaide Fringe Festival (2000, 2002, 2004, 2006 to 2011 and 2017) and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (1998, 2002 to 2017). These shows have included the following:
“My Goodness My Guinness” – a show about the Guinness Book of Records
“Christmas in Baghdad” – about doing comedy for our troops
“Taxing Lyrical” – a show about Lehmo’s ten years as a chartered accountant
“White Line Fever” – about Lehmo’s love of sport (particularly the Hawthorn football club)
“War, Marriage & Puppy Love” – about war, marriage and puppy love.
“The Family Lifeboat” – about navigating life as a new father
Lehmo also once held the Guinness World Record for the most jokes told in an hour (549).
Lehmo has performed for businesses big and small throughout Australia and south east Asia. These functions have included AGMs, team bonding days, Christmas dinners, conferences and the list goes on. Having spent ten years working in the corporate world as a chartered accountant Lehmo is perfectly qualified for any such function. Lehmo knows exactly what it takes to put a smile on a corporate face. He’s even completed an entire festival show on the subject – the very successful “Taxing Lyrical”.
Lehmo can be heard on ABC Radio’s Grandstand on weekends, and on the Triple M network across the week.
Up until December 2017, Lehmo hosted the very successful Gold 104.3 breakfast show in Melbourne with Jo Stanley. They finished up at the station whilst they were the number 1 FM breakfast show in Melbourne. From 6am to 9am every weekday morning they kept Melbourne laughing (and sometimes crying) with their unique brand of humour.
Being in radio since 2003 Lehmo has interviewed everyone from Prime Ministers and Premiers to award winning actors and rock n’ roll legends.
Prior to Gold 104.3 Lehmo was at Mix FM in Melbourne with Brigitte Duclos, the national drive show on Triple M with Wil Anderson. And prior to this Lehmo’s radio career started on the number one rating SAFM breakfast show in Adelaide.
Lehmo is currently a panelist on the very popular network 10 news comedy program The Project, and the host of AFL comedy quiz show, The Beep Test on Fox Sports.
He also stars in the Logie winning and critically acclaimed Working Dog TV production Utopia which airs on the ABC and Netflix.
Lehmo was also a host on the hugely popular AFL show Before The Game with Dave Hughes, Mick Molloy, Andy Maher and Neroli Meadows. The show aired for 11 years and was Logie nominated for best sports show on 9 occasions.
