Crackhouse Comedy Presents : Dilruk Jayasinha (AU) featuring Justin Heyes

Comedian Dilruk Jayasinha live at Crackhouse Comedy Kuala Lumpur

Hailing from Sri Lanka, Dilruk relocated to Melbourne to attend university. Having completed a degree in accounting, he started working for one of the “Big Four.” However, after performing at an open mic night in 2010, that all changed…

In a bittersweet turn of events, Dilruk was unceremoniously fired from his accounting job at the same time his comedy career was taking shape. Just as Dilruk had, it turns out his managers had noticed that his heart lay elsewhere.

 

 

Dilruk is now a regular on the comedy scene around Melbourne and with a reputation for consistently nailing his shows, Dil has been invited to perform all over the country as well as internationally and in 2017 he completely sold out his run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his brand new show The Art of the Dil.

Dilruk has recorded an hour long special for the ABC and is a regular on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention? He’s also appeared at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs festival.

Dilruk has also just scored his own TV show as team captain on brand new panel show CRAM for Network Ten alongside fellow team captain Virginia Gay and host, Peter Helliar, not to mention becoming a regular, acting in ABC TV’s award winning Utopia.
