More about Dilruk Jayasinha:

Having grown up in Sri Lanka, Dilruk Jayasinha moved to Melbourne to attend university. He completed a degree in accounting and started working for one of the "Big Four," however, this career was changed forever after performing at an open mic night in 2010.

Dil quickly developed a reputation for consistently nailing his shows with his positive, upbeat brand of stand-up. Consequently, he was invited to perform all over the country as well as internationally, and in 2017 he completely sold out his run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival with his show The Art of the Dil.

Dilruk has recorded an hour long stand up special for the ABC, and is a regular on Network Ten's Have You Been Paying Attention? and Hughesy We Have a Problem. He has also appeared at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs festival.

In 2019, Dilruk reprised his role in the fourth season of ABC TV's award-
winning Utopia, performed at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, and returned to Edinburgh for the second year running with his new show, Cheat Day(s). He also recorded a stand up special for global release on Amazon Prime.
