She ticked every box, handled the corporate audience brilliantly and gave me the goods and then some, she simply “got it” from the get go…. 5 days later and I’m still getting emails about Julia. She was simply stunning in every way…WOW!

Events Producer

 

Julia Morris managed to achieve what most other entertainers dream of – she had 580 guests entertained and hanging on to every word she said. She was funny, entertaining and the consummate professional. Her self-deprecating humour and  necdotal stories had people in stitches.

Julia Morris's Biography

Julia Morris is one of Australia’s most accomplished and celebrated performers. A quadruple threat, Julia has seamlessly moved between the stage and the screen for over 34 years.

 

Aged 17, Julia first appeared on Aussie TV, singing on talent show, New Faces. By the mid nineties Julia was a household name as a headlining stand up and actor, with starring roles in comedy sketch favourite Full Frontal, night time talk show In Melbourne Tonight and comedy panel show, Beauty and the Beast. Julia also starred in the Melbourne run of the hit Broadway musical ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!’

 

As a stand up comedian, Julia has featured in every major comedy festival in the world, taking to the stage with Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Pryor and Robin Williams. From Comedy Festival Galas to the Prime Ministers Midwinter Ball, Julia’s infectious humour is universally loved.

 

Moving to London in 2000, Lady JMo featured in several British sitcoms, co-hosted Liquid News, a daily entertainment show on the BBC while also featuring on a number of comedy panels including Stephen Fry’s QI.

 

Her 2001 solo show won the prestigious Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival and with a ground swell of comedy fans, Julia also won Time Out London’s ‘Comedy Performer of the Year’.

 

Julia also met her husband Dan in the UK, where she also gave birth to her first daughter, Ruby. They all moved back to Australia in 2008, where Julia and Australian Opera star David Hobson won Channel 7’s celebrity singing show It Takes Two.

 

Julia gave birth to her second daughter, Sophie, in 2008 and with a babe in arms, she became a published author, penning some of her memoirs in ‘Don’t You Know Who I Used To Be?’ in 2009.

 

Having won ‘Best Australian Act’ at the Time Out Sydney 2009 Comedy Awards, Julia relocated her family to Los Angeles, where she studied with Hollywood acting coach, Lesly Kahn. In late 2011 Julia returned home to become Australia’s very first Celebrity Apprentice, raising nearly $200,000 for breast cancer research along the way.

 

By the following year, Julia was cast as the female lead, Gemma Crabb, in the Nine Network drama House Husbands. The show established itself as an audience favourite, with Julia being nominated for ‘Most Popular Actress’ in Australia’s Logie Awards for 5 years in a row. The final season of House Husbands was broadcast in 2017.

 

Between August and November 2013 Julia hosted Nine Network’s Australia’s Got Talent. The same year, her No Judgement stand-up tour won the Helpmann Award for Best Comedy. (Australia’s Tonys.)

 

The big formats just kept coming and in 2015 Julia co-hosted the very first Australian season of Network Ten’s hit reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! with Dr Chris Brown. I’m A Celebrity has since become a highlight of Ten’s annual TV calendar, shooting each year near the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

 

In February 2019 Julia went straight from the African ‘jungle’ to the first season of Chris and Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway, the Australian version of the ‘Ant and Dec’ feel-good UK hit.

 

Julia lives in Melbourne with her husband Dan, daughters Ruby and Sophie and their dog, Tootsie.
