Suren Jayemanne

Recognised as one of Australia’s most exciting emerging comedians by both Melbourne International Comedy Festival (The Comedy Zone, 2014) and Sydney Comedy Festival (FRESH, 2015), Suren Jayemanne is definitely one to watch.

Suren began performing stand-up comedy in 2011, quickly impressing audiences with a style inspired by classic one-liner comedians such as Demetri Martin and Steven Wright. Suren was a Victorian finalist in triple J’s RAW Comedy (Australia’s largest comedy competition) in 2012 and 2013, becoming a regular performer in comedy rooms around Sydney and Melbourne.

In 2014, after 2 years performing in split bill shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Suren was hand-picked by directors of the festival to appear in the prestigious Comedy Zone, a showcase of five of the best new comics from around Australia. Suren’s stand-up has been heard broadcast live on ABC 774 (Comedy Bites Gala) and triple J (Good Az Friday).

Suren has had a great 2015, performing his solo debut show “Eat Praline, Die” at Australia’s major comedy festivals, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival. At the latter, “Eat Praline, Die” was presented as part of the festival’s FRESH program for showcasing the best emerging talent. “Eat Praline, Die” sold out shows across both festivals and received 4 STARS from Helen Razer in The Daily Review.

Suren is at once good natured and provocative, his irreverent manner representing a diverse and emerging voice in Australia.

“… a wonderful comedian whom I would like to see playing much bigger rooms immediately… f****ng hilarious” – The Daily Review

“He’s charming and engaging, carefully blending the topical with the ridiculous.” – SBS

“Jayemanne is a purveyor of truly magnificent puns…” – The Weekly Review
