In his new stand-up performance, aptly named ‘Blonde Bombshell’, Joel Creasey dishes the dirt on those he’s encountered during his rise to fame.

With his 'Mean Girls' Burn Book intact, no celeb was safe from Joel’s scorn. In fact, anyone outside the room was a target in this exclusive, tell-all show.

With a long list of credits that would probably match his little black book, he’s quite literally taken on any opportunity that’s come his way.

He has whored himself across Australian TV, throughout comedy galas and even ventured into the African jungle. In the past year, he’s released his first book entitled ‘Thirsty: Confessions of a Fame Whore’, hosted the Eurovision Song Contest, won GQ Comedian of the Year and even played a slut on ‘Neighbours’.

Joel has stopped at nothing to try everything and has quickly become a household name.

He is also completely honest in his ambitions for notoriety, free shit and men.

Finding his groove in front of a sell-out crowd at the Powerhouse Theatre, ‘Blonde Bombshell’ dropped truth bombs left, right and centre.

Hitting the stage, Joel indulged the audience with a behind-the-scenes look at his life. He exposed his feud with singer Vance Joy, confided about his time on Eurovision and dealing with a bad bout of gastro (not to mention, the ridicule from the public when he was announced as a host), dished about being star-struck when he met Cher at the recent Mardi Gras and gave insight into his controversial affair with an AFL player.

At no point was the room silent – Joel sassed and slashed his way through topics with ease.

Joel has a way of hyping up a crowd so they’re on board his show, even from the get-go. This was evident in the opening of the act, which played a catchy media montage of some of his finest comebacks and endeavours. It suitably bounced along to the hit tune ‘Feel It Still’ by Portugal. The Man – proving that Joel Creasey is really ‘a rebel just for kicks’.

Commanding the audience’s attention at every turn, his rebellious disposition left people stamping their feet and laughing to the point of no return.

Another of Joel’s most endearing qualities is his authentic and unrestrained nature – where everything is on the table and nothing is off topic. The attention was always on him and his stories. Even if it meant he had to share self-deprecating secrets – a trade-off that doesn’t seem to bother him at all. Any publicity is good publicity, right?

He is extremely quick-witted – even when it comes to responding to undesirable comments. As a self-proclaimed warrior on Twitter, Joel hunts down those who add negativity to his reputation – saying it’s better to ‘stalk and like’ and then ‘unfollow and block’.

Those adverse remarks were used throughout his show, spurring Joel on more and entertaining audiences in return. Little have the haters realised, their feedback has encouraged him and made him into a superstar. Lucky for Joel, he won’t need to waste time with this review!

Go and see this diva before he sashays his way onto another project – he’s so fetch!
