MC, Moderator, Debater, Comedian

Effie is the brightest bauble at every corporate event.

Daring, dashing and always hilarious, when Effie is involved, every day is a party.

Effie has MC’d and delivered comedy spots for the Midwinter Ball in Canberra and the Princeton Pharmaceutical Charity Ball, she has MC’d for Tyrepower, the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, been on the winning team for the ABC International Women’s Day debate; delivered the keynote for Rotary, the National Multicultural Conference Sydney and Adelaide Women’s AFL luncheon… and that’s just for starters.

More about Effie

I was born Upmyself and hot.
This Logie Award winning former hairdresser has been called a lot of things. Yes, I’ve been called a pioneer, a legend, a megastar, a cultural icon as well as a frigid, self-centred, paranoid, ball busting, b*tch.

And I admit I am all of those things. And mores.
What have I done? What are youse joking?
At times I have done more than what is humanly possible.
Here is just some of the ground breaking, commercially breath-taking gold that I have been part of.

‘Wogs Out Of Work’ – Phenomenal Theatre Show – Highest Grossing Original Stage Show – Don’t tell the Tax Department that.

‘Acropolis Now’ – TV – 5 Hilarious Seasons – Household name.
Hello? We used to beat 60 Minutes in the ratings.

‘Waiting for Effie’ – Critically acclaimed One Woman Stage Show. People were aghasts. An absolute classic!

My Song with Norman Gunston ‘Amigos Para Siempre’ Top 20 on the Aria charts. And I can’t sing. Imagine if I could.

‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ TV – I won 64,000 big bananas. Unfortunately I had to give it all to charity. Talk about spew.

‘Greeks On The Roof’. TV – The words skilled, stunning and side-splitting were uttered by too many to mention.

‘Effie’s Guide to Being Upyourself’. Book. Yes I am an author. Some have called this book a bible.

‘A Date With Effie’ A Stage Show that proved once again that talent, artistry and charisma to this degree has to be seen to be believed.

‘Effie The Virgin Bride’ my critically acclaimed epic one-woman stage show did 2 National Tours – Good thanks!

‘Star Wogs – The Ethnics Strike Back’ Stage Show with Nick Giannopoulos & Sooshi Mango toured nationally with hilarity and popularity to the masses.

‘Effie in Love Me Tinder’ launched in 2019 for the Sydney Comedy Festival touring nationally – killing it!
Locked out of venues for most of 2020, I launched my latest show ‘Better Out Than In’ to sellout houses before being locked in again in 2021.
Fortunately we were back out in 2022 with all my rescheduled Better Out Than In shows.
Did youse see my recent episode of Dancing With The Stars 2023?
Nailed it!
Legend I hear youse say. Der Fred, I say.
