Michael Hing

Comedian and Aspiring Washed Up Comedian

Michael Hing is a comedian, actor and terrible party guest. He’s not very good in group situations, or one-on-one, or by himself, unless there’s some sort of organised activity to keep us distracted from the void that lives and grows within us all. His political comedy features regularly on SBS Viceland’s The Feed, for which one time he was shortlisted to be nominated to be a candidate to win a Logie. It was for best new talent. He had been on TV for about 5 years at this point.

In 2018, he was invited to the Logies as a guest, and during the one interview he did on the red carpet, the interviewer asked who he was and then called him the wrong name several times, mistaking him from celebrity chef Adam Liaw.

Michael is co-host of triple j Drive, where he used to work as a dj, and in that capacity he has eaten over 65 chongus pills, opened a hotline for anyone to call him, and performed as part of triple j’s One Night Stand Up gala.

He has performed stand up comedy around Australia, and internationally, studied improv at UCB in Los Angeles and New York, and if you can believe it has both a Dungeons and Dragons podcast, and also a comedy podcast about classifieds.

He appeared in the Stan Original Series The Other Guy, and is the host of the SBS documentary series Where Are You Really From?.

One of his many side hustles is hosting television shows about video games. He was a host on the ABC’s Good Game and also hosted the Oceanic Pro League, an esports broadcast for Riot Games.

One time he made it to Div 2 in FIFA seasons, but that was a long time ago.
