Dilruk Jayasinha's Biography
After moving to Australia on his own from Sri Lanka at the age of 19, Dilruk Jayasinha was well on his way toward making his parents proud by making good use of his finance and accounting degree. However, in 2009 he was unceremoniously fired by one of the “Big Four” accounting firms.
Just as Dil had, his managers noted that he had absolutely no interest in being a full time accountant. Dil then promptly jumped up for his first gig in September 2010 and hasn’t looked back since.
Dil is now one of the most in demand headliners on the Australian comedy scene, with a reputation for consistently nailing his shows with his positive, upbeat brand of stand-up. Dil has been invited to perform all over the country as well as internationally, and in 2017 he completely sold out his run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival with his show The Art of the Dil.
Dilruk has recorded an hour long stand up special for the ABC, and is a regular on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention? And Hughesy We Have a Problem. He also appeared at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs festival.
In 2018, Dil received one of the highest accolades in Australian entertainment – the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Popular New Talent at the 2018 Logie Awards.
In 2019 Dilruk reprised his role in the fourth season of ABC TV’s award-winning Utopia, performed at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and returned to Edinburgh for the second year running with his show, Cheat Day(s).
Dilruk recently appeared in the sixth series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Australia and has recorded a stand up special for Amazon Prime which was released globally in 2020.
