About Us


Harley Breen is surely and rapidly becoming a major player in the Melbourne and Australian comedy world. He is young, and already well versed in the language of the art that is Comedy. He began with his feet planted firmly on the ground and his mind traveling to exotic and imaginative destinations. Harley's comedy career was launched in Brisbane where he performed with the top local and national comedy circuit.

After two years of working the Brisbane scene Harley moved to Melbourne to take part in the 2004 Melbourne International Comedy festival (MICF). His first comedy festival show "A Harley shaped Hickey called Wayne" achieved sell out crowds. In 2005 his MICF show titled "SKINT" achieved the same success attracting robust crowds and receiving acclaim throughout the season. In the 2006 MICF Harley produced and performed his first solo show; "Harley Breen Son of a Preacher Man" directed by Brad Oakes; once again achieving bumper crowds and great reviews.

"Harley Breen is what he says he is, a hilarious break from comedy stereotypes, very funny." The Age

"Harley leaves the audience begging for more" MX Melbourne.

Directly after the 2006 MICF season Harley was invited to take part in the comedy festival official tour "the Melbourne comedy festival road show", along with various other comedians including Greg fleet, Mark Watson and Fiona O'Loughlin Harley performed in 21 different shows throughout Queensland Victoria and Western Aus.

Along with loosely scripted comedy, Harley also has a flare at making up comedy on the spot, performing with two improvisation crews regularly over the past two years, Cut and Paste (glitch bar and cinema) and the "Crew" Australia's longest running weekly Improvisation troupe. It hasnít been confined to just improvisation theatre though, he has also been in "serious" theatre from fringe productions to the Bard. In addition to this Harley has performed in various roles on local and international TV shows, Ads and Movies, the most exiting being the Box office smash hit Scooby Doo. It had to have been a smash hit somewhere, why else would you film a second one.

With rapid energy and physicality, Harley delivers his bizarre and absurd takes on the world, captivating his audience with unmarked ideas and surreal images in a mission to unravel rigid beliefs and preset assumptions that mostly subside cunningly deep within institutions and establishments (what the hell does that mean?). Harley tackles his dilemmas and sticky situations head-on exposing humor that may otherwise go unnoticed.
