Hi there, I'm Jordan. I'm a comedian but I also sing, write, make films, give talks, and paint tiny soldiers so I can do little wars.
I started my career in 2005 as a core cast member and co-creator of the sketch comedy show The Ronnie John's Half Hour. It was nominated for a Logie Award and went on to become a cult classic (which means that few people remember it but those that do bloody loved it). In 2006 I founded a musical comedy group with my friend's Lee and Benny called The Axis of Awesome. A video of our 4 Chords Song was tweeted by Ashton Kutcher in 2011 then we became really popular on the internet.
I toured the world with AoA for over a decade and we released a bunch of viral hits on the band's YouTube channel. During that time I became a regular fixture on Australian comedy TV appearing in shows like Thank God You're Here, Good News Week and as a team captain on the SBS sports quiz show The Squiz. In 2012 I had a supporting role in a telemovie about Julian Assange called Underground and in 2013 I tried to convince the denizens of the internet to help me win a Logie for that role. I also performed and provided voices for a whole bunch of ads.
At the tail end of 2014 I came to the personal realisation that I was transgender. I began transition and came out publicly in 2016.
Since coming out and transitioning I've found myself balancing my entertainment career with a lot of speaking and advocacy work. I took on the role of host of the ABC podcast This is About but began creating content around issues such as Australia Day and Marriage Equality. I was also super proud to speak at TEDx Sydney in 2017 on the topic of High Functioning Anxiety.
