Not many comedians can claim the sheer speed of success that Australian comedian Jack Levi, aka Elliot Goblet, has enjoyed. Spotted by talent scouts only 10 months into his career, Jack’s round glasses wearing character quickly became a regular face on Australian TV, namely Hey Hey It’s Saturday, The Big Gig, and the Midday Show. His character’s catatonic, monotonal one-liners also quickly became recited across Australian workplaces and schools, making his look and sound embedded in Australian comedy history.
In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast episode, comedian Jack Levi talks about being discovered, Daryl Somers, writing material, and his move into keynote speaking and MCing events. And Don’t worry, I’m talking to Jack, not Elliot, so the interview is upbeat and exciting.
