Biography

Stefan and Craig are Australia‘s hottest up and coming comedy duo. Famed for their video stunts, stupid dares, silly characters and slightly left of centre banter, Stefan & Craig have accomplished a lot in little time. Most notably: They played Megadeth on ABC Radio, found out Geoffrey Rush‘s porn name, serenaded Fifi Box, had Shaun Micallef record their voicemail and the highligh they sang ”I‘m a Little Teapot“ with Noni Hazlehurst.

The boys met at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in 2002 and became best mates immediately. They argue that much of their first material was developed around a toaster in their share house kitchen. Trained actors, Stefan and Craig have collectively appeared on; City Homicide, Blue Heelers, Hawke, Newstopia, Bed of Roses and Dead Normal with numerous theatre credits including Melbourne Theatre Company and Company B (Belvoir Street)

After years in community radio and an award for ’Best Flagship Team‘ (2009 SYN Awards) Triple M agreed to put these two on air. Late at night. In Brisbane. This has been a dream job for Stefan & Craig and for those that can‘t tune in, their highlights appear 24hours a day on digital comedy station; Barry, where the boys are also the voice of Barry and major sponsor, Lockwood.

Their antics can also be viewed on their well followed facebook group ’Stefan & Craig‘ and late 2010 will see the debut of their TV show ’Stefan & Craig Slightly Live‘.

These are humble beginnings for Stefan & Craig but be sure to keep your eyes peeled as they are sure to bounce onto your TV, radio, or web page sometime in the near future.
