Shane Bourne is a familiar and popular figure on Australian television and stage. He is a master of stand-up and is one of the most talented comedians in the country.

Shane Bourne made his debut appearance on television at the age of 10, performing on the Happy Hammond Show as 'Shane Bourne and his Miming Prawns'. He won his heat on New Faces in 1972 and, following in his famous father's footsteps (Stan Bourne 'King of the Goldcoast'), appeared on The Graham Kennedy Show and The Paul Hogan Show. He cemented his place as one of Australia's favourite comedians on 'Hey Hey It's Saturday', presenting the hilarious 'Great Aussie Joke' segment with his mate, the late Maurie Fields.

However, Shane is also a respected actor. The early 80s saw him perform in numerous guest roles on such shows as 'Cop Shop', 'The Sullivans' and 'Prisoner'. He played a salesman extraordinaire in the Australian version of 'Are You Being Served' and starred in the sitcom Bingles. A career highlight was working with Steve Martin on his play 'Picasso' at the Lapin Agile, which played to audience and critical acclaim in both Melbourne and Sydney, with Shane in the leading role. Shane's vast experience and relaxed stage presence make him an ideal MC or comedian at any function.
