Accomplished Comedian & Keynote Speaker
Tim Ferguson has earned a reputation as one of Australia’s best known and most accomplished comedians. Supremely professional and with an innate ability to delight and amuse audiences, he is also a hugely popular corporate event host and keynote speaker.
Having battled Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for 30 years, Tim travels in a wheelchair – a vehicle he proudly claims “helps me move faster than most people”. His keynote speech is informative, touching and funny. Themed “Overcoming Obstacles & Adapting to Change”, it demonstrates that humour, flexibility and teamwork can overcome challenges.
Tim tours the world performing to sell-out crowds with comedy trio The Doug Anthony All Stars [DAAS], which won the Edinburgh Festival’s biggest award ‘Spirit of the Fringe Award’ in 2016.
Tim writes, directs and produces sitcoms, movies, entertainment TV and live comedy shows. He wrote and directed the comedy movie Spin Out [Sony Pictures, 2016]. As well as entertaining and delivering insightful keynote speeches, Tim works with various professional and government organisations to generate employment for disabled people.
Tim’s performance has received the highest acclaim … brilliant, fantastic, best ever MC … These are just some of the comments from the audience, and I thoroughly endorse them all.

The event was a great success and Tim’s contribution gave the evening that extra ‘sparkle’
Tim delivered the goods to the total satisfaction of our audience. He is a very talented person.
-Australian Telemarketing & Call Centre Association
Enthusiastic and spontaneous; very interesting in group and absolutely hilarious.
Excellent. Tim was fantastic and added greatly to the success of the night. If we don’t use him next year it will only be because we decide against using the same host two years in a row.
Excellent. Tim was according to the audience ‘the best MC we have had’. He had them listening, interacting with them and maintained their interest.
-The Packaging Council of Australia Inc
I have been booking entertainers & MC’s for 20 years and Tim Ferguson would undisputably be the most professional, conscientious, diligent & charming MC I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
Tim lived up to his very good reputation as an MC. He delighted the audience with his journey, which was very relevant, he ensured that there was an air of lightness to the way he introduced other speakers to the panel and genuinely won over the audience. Without his input on the night it would have been just another staid event. He was very accommodating in our requests to participate in a media event where he received very good TV and Newspaper coverage. Staff and clients who did not know of him were very complimentary. Overall the event went very well from MS Tasmania’s perspective and in no way would it have been so well received without Tim’s comments and general ability to work a crowd and positively contributing to the other speakers being relaxed.
