A multi-talented stand-up, host and actress, Julia has been a household name in Australia since her television debut in 1985 and has performed on stage with such comedy royalty as Richard Pryor, Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Lewis and Robin Williams.
Between 2000 and 2007, ‘Lady J-Mo’ (as she is affectionately called) lived in the UK and hosted TV shows for the BBC, appeared in nearly every major international comedy festival from Montreal to South Africa, won the prestigious Herald Angel award at the Edinburgh Festival 2002 and was named Time Out London’s ‘Comedy Performer of the Year’ in 2004. She also wrote and performed three different one woman shows on London’s prestigious West End.
In April 2008 Julia won Channel 7’s celebrity singing show It Takes Two. Her 2008 and 2009 stand-up tours were both nominated for the Helpmann Award (Australia’s version of the prestigious Tony or Olivier theatre awards). Julia’s first set of memoirs, entitled “Don’t You Know Who I Used To Be?” were released to popular acclaim in April 2009 and the same year she won ‘Best Australian Act’ at the Time Out Sydney comedy awards.
In November 2011 Julia got ‘hired’ in the first series of Channel Nine’s hit reality TV show, Celebrity Apprentice Australia. Julia’s hilarious and yet professional performance throughout the show cemented her position as an Australian comedy icon and also demonstrated that she doesn’t just have a smart mouth, but a smart brain too. Whether performing as feature act or MC, Julia adds a lick of style to any event. Catch this internationally acclaimed diva of fun now and make yours a day – or night – to remember.
