Daryl Peebles has added much to Australia’s entertainment / comedy scene as both a writer and a performer over many years. Several comedy plays with performances in every Australian state, New Zealand and the UK have fallen from his pen along with numerous revues and bawdy pantomimes.
He is also an award-winning performance poet and has worked as a comedian for almost 40 years.
His children’s character, (magician, ventriloquist and songster Mr Beep), has been around long enough to now have two generations of fans – a big hit with the four to eight-year-old set.
Daryl now regularly works as an after-dinner speaker, MC, magician, ventriloquist, and comedy / charity auctioneer.
But there is a serious side. While Daryl worked professionally in human resource management and corporate communications, he studied part-time at the University of Tasmania’s Tasmanian School of Business and Economics from where he graduated with a PhD - his thesis focusing on the sometimes controversial subject, The Value of Humour in Workplaces. His research and findings are the basis of his entertaining and informative talk about the benefits of appropriate humour in life generally.
