About Tan Jose:

Tan Jose is a dynamic comedy duo comprising Tanya Bulmer and Josephine O'Reilly.

Tanya Bulmer is well known for her stints on Thank God You're Here, David Tench Tonight, Joker Poker and the Triple M Breakfast Show with Fat Cat, Marto and Tanya. She also appeared weekly as the exclusive reporter for BackBerner, the Dotcom Chick from MMM's "Club Veg" and the World Improvisation Champion from the Montreal "Just for Laughs" comedy festival.

Tanya was the General Manager of the 1999 Sydney Comedy Festival as well as Artistic Director of Theatresports Inc Sydney for two years.

Josephine O'Reilly returned to Australia after writing and performing for eight years throughout the world with the Irish comedy trio, The Nualas.

Josephine was the Artistic Director and a principal performer with Boom Chicago, the American improvisation comedy company based in Amsterdam, Holland. Boom Chicago has repeatedly scored the Scotsman prestigious five stars at the Edinburgh Festival, and the Edinburgh Herald wrote, 'Boom Chicago are a testament to the art of intelligence meeting the funny bone.' The New York Times called Josephine an 'undeniable overall talent."

When Tanya and Josephine teamed together to create Tan Jose, they sold out at the Melbourne and Sydney comedy festivals and were noted by Melbourne's Herald Sun for Tanya's 'hilarious visual comedy', Josephine's 'smashing voice' and their 'great onstage relationship.' (The Age)

    Client testimonials

    Tanya and Jo were absolutely outstanding to work with. They provided incredibly detailed background work in the leadup to our event, as well as facilitating workshops with the participants to take them through the creative process.


    They understood our brief very well, and devised funny and clever routines to work with our theme. For our keynote presentations they created an upbeat atmosphere and light relief, enabling the audience to then focus on the important product initiatives we were announcing.

    It's not easy to entertain 200 delegates at 9am on a Friday morning after a week long training agenda. It's even harder to make them laugh. Not only did Tan Jose entertain us, we laughed and laughed and laughed til the face hurt… Tan Jose provided just the right combination of laughter, motivation and participation that ended our week on a high. Perfect, thankyou.
