Annie is a 25-year-old stand-up comedian, writer, producer and actor from Melbourne who has been performing for the past eight years. She has performed around Australia and internationally, at the Edinburgh Fringe and New Zealand Fringe festivals.

Annie is an inaugural recipient of the Stand Up! Grant, an Andrews Labor Government initiative inspired by the talent and promise of Eurydice Dixon. The grant supports a new generation of strong funny women serious about comedy.

She features in the newly released book ‘No Apologies’ about women in comedy claiming their space, written by Joanne Brookfield.

Currently, Annie is the producer and podcaster for the Tuesday drive show, ‘Jacq and Dene’ on JOY94.9. She also produces the monthly comedy show ‘Slice Comedy’ at Compass Pizza in Brunswick East.

Annie started doing stand-up as a teenager and became a National Finalist in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival's Class Clowns competition. Since then, she has appeared in The Herald Sun, The Age and on Triple J's Good Az Friday Show.

Annie is one of twenty artists being mentored by comedian Tessa Waters as part of her international mentorship program.

In 2017, she performed her debut solo show 'Butt Donut' at the Melbourne Fringe and completely sold out her season. She toured the show in Perth and Adelaide before performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

The show raised $1000 for the KIDS Foundation which assists children and adults living with burns and other serious injuries. Annie has been an ambassador for the charity for three years.

Annie performed her second solo show ‘Before I Forget’ at the Melbourne Fringe in 2018, selling out six shows in her two-week season at the Fringe Hub.

As an actor, Annie has performed with the Australian Shakespeare Company, the Victorian Youth Theatre and was a VCE Drama Top Class Performer.

Annie graduated from Monash University with a Bachelor of Journalism. She interned at ABC News, LightFM and ArtsHub, and was a newsreader at SYN radio.
