This week we’re bringing back our ‘Funny Girls’ – hilarious women who’ve made us laugh over the years. We’ll be featuring interviews with some of Australia’s funniest women including Judith Lucy, Jean Kitson, Wendy Hamer, Kathy Lette and today’s special guest … Julia Morris. Queen of comedy Julia Morris talks about making the switch from comedy to drama for the Channel Nine series House Husbands.
Julia has been a regular face on Australian television since making her debut on New Faces in 1985. By 1995 she was a household name, hosting or starring in popular shows including Full Frontal, In Melbourne Tonight and Beauty and the Beast.
Between 2000 and 2007, “Lady J-Mo” (as she is affectionately called) lived in the UK. During that time, Julia hosted TV shows for the BBC and worked with everyone from Stephen Fry to Dame Edna.
In late 2011 Julia returned home to become Australia’s very first Celebrity Apprentice, raising over $200,000 for breast cancer research along the way.
With nearly thirty years’ experience entertaining crowds all over the world, Julia Morris is one of Australia’s most successful and polished performers and has shared the stage with comedy royalty including Richard Pryor, Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Lewis and Robin Williams.
