Lean Into It

Presented by Token Events

Vital stats: I’m 187 centimetres and usually weigh 84 kilograms (depending if it’s just been $10 parmi and chocolate fondue night at my local).

I just had three fillings put in and I think the hair on my toe knuckles are growing longer. You might have seen me on The Project (Network Ten) or hosting The Beep Test (Fox Footy) every week.

So far this reads like a bad Tinder profile – but really, you just wanna know if you’ll find my show funny. Look me up on YouTube and see if you like the jokes.

My show will be just like that but with new jokes (and with no ad you need to skip at the start, BONUS).
