Michael Pope

Versatile humourist and entertainer.


Michael Pope holds a unique place in the Australian entertainment industry. A former TV presenter himself, Michael has been the first choice for audience warm-up since 1990 and has worked on more studio audience-based programs than anyone else. Whether it’s the raucous noise of The Footy Show crowd, or the more intimate audience of Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell transforming a disparate group of 200 into one cohesive audience is what Michael does better than anyone else through his energy, quick wit and great sense of fun.

It is this same sense of entertainment that he brings to his corporate work, whether it be as MC of an Awards Night, Gala Dinner, as conference facilitator or any event where an audience gathers. In addition, Michael can perform any number of ‘acts’ ranging from five to 45 minutes. His forte is in improvisation and inclusion, and guests feel very connected to the event during any one of his ‘you had to be there’ moments of Mentalism! With over 30 years’ experience in the corporate sphere Michael can be relied upon to bring a professionalism, enthusiasm and sense of fun to all his work.

Current work

In this new era of online meeting, Michael Pope is the obvious choice to hold such an event together – and to add value. With his TV presenter experience, as well as a TV producer for a decade – Michael is well aware of the challenges and skills required to hold a ‘virtual’ audience’s attention. Add to that his 30 + years as the country’s leading TV warm-up guy and you have someone uniquely placed to grab the attention, hold it – and pass it on to others on screen. In addition, his work in the live corporate event scene for over three decades means he respects content, and he knows how an event should run. With a producer’s mind, he can work with you too to create an online event that delegates will talk about – and importantly, want to return to.

Known for his lightning quick wit – his eye for detail and professional attitude, Michael is guaranteed to deliver all you expect as an online host – and more.
