Karl Chandler

Karl co-hosts The Little Dum Dum Club podcast with fellow comic Tom Dassalo.

He is a comedian, and one of the strongest writers of a joke in the country. Short, sharp jokes are his specialty, whether it’s a weird one-liner or a topical whack to the face. He’s completed three solo Melbourne International Comedy Festival shows – all focusing mainly on short jokes – called Karl Chandler has 125 Jokes, Karl Chandler is 100 Jokes Per Hour and Karl Chandler: Jokes in 140 Characters.

Karl has also been a writer and on-air cast member of Channel 31’s live-to-air comedy/variety show Studio A since it’s inception in 2008, picking up a Program of the Year award along the way. He’s also appeared on the Comedy Channel’s Stand Up Australia.

Karl is often heard being interviewed, or telling jokes on Triple J, Nova FM and Triple M. He also runs three of the most accomplished and successful comedy nights in Melbourne: Comedy@Spleen, Softbelly Comedy and Felix Bar Comedy.
