Janelle Koenig has been funny since – well – birth but her career in comedy started more than 15 years ago when she was discovered at the inaugural Jeez Louise Funny Women's Forum.

She's performed at festivals around Australia and the world, laughing her way around the country from Marble Bar to Moe and Broad Meadows to Broome. Janelle flits seamlessly from the comedy stage to corporate gigs, from screen and radio to buck's nights and football club bashes, but Janelle knew she was really hitting her strides in February 2008, when she was hand-picked by NBC as one of only two Melbournian comedian to represent Australia in Last Comic Standing in Miami, Florida.

In 2010, Janelle relocated permanently from Melbourne to Perth, Western Australia where she snagged a gig as one half of Mix94.5 duo The Jam with Janelle and Sam, and also contributes her hugely popular weekly segment 'Mum's The Word' to the breakfast show. Janelle is the TV columnist for The Sunday Times newspaper, and is a constant fixture on the local Perth comedy circuit and Fringe World scene.

Janelle has been Joel Creasey's business partner for over five years (nothing to do with finances - she just knows all his business), and has been Joel's writer and director his last 5 shows. Janelle and Joel also just completed Joel's autobiography 'Thirsty', due for release late 2017.

Along with comedy writing for Joel, Janelle has also written for Em Rusciano, Effie (Mary Coustas) and the incomparable Jimeoin.

Janelle has a combined social media squad of almost 25,000 people fabulous followers.

Janelle is an accomplished comedian and a mediocre guitarist. Her unique blend of honest stand-up, cheeky songs and sometimes far too personal tales about all aspects of her own life have made her a favourite amongst Australian audiences. She's proud to consider herself a 'real woman' but keeps her skinny jeans 'just in case'.
