Kent Valentine tells stories that are full of jokes and his infectious mix of irreverence and enthusiastic optimism makes him one of the most dynamic comedians on the comedy landscape.
His five solo shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Fablemonger, How to love everyone (even the arseholes), A Fistful of Rainbows, What Would Batman Do? & Be My [Kent] Valentine) have all been critically acclaimed, and his most recent show Fablemonger was nominated for a critics award by Australian Comedy Review.
Kent currently lives and works in the UK, opening and headlining clubs all around the country.
In 2005, Kent was one of 4 Australian comics selected to perform in The Comedy Zone, a festival show run by the Melbourne Comedy Festival that showcases Australia’s best new talent.
From 2007 to 2008 Kent was the Editor of (and then a columnist for) RoveDaily.com.au, producing satirical news content, commentaries and reviews.
While they were on air, Kent had a regular guest spot on the Triple J radio breakfast show with Adam Spencer and Wil Anderson.
Kent also ran A Mic in Hand at the Friend in Hand, Sydney’s favourite open mic comedy venue with Sam Bowring from 2003 until June 2007.
Kent hates talking about himself in the 3rd person, but hey, what can you do?
