about me

Since the day in 2001 when he delivered a fridge to Sydney’s Nova969 resulting in him landing his first job in the entertainment industry, Paul has established himself as a professional radio presenter, TV host, voice artist, stand-up comedian, MC, auctioneer and musician.

After climbing the ranks of radio station promotions, Paul became an on-?air presenter under the nickname “Fridgy”. Five years later and he had presented every radio shift across the day (including being the regular breakfast fill-in) on three different Nova Network stations in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.

While hosting “drive” in Perth, Paul made his first TV appearance on the Perth Telethon panel live on Channel 7. Paul produced and presented a national radio show for the Nova network “The P-Plate Debate”.

He got his second taste of national radio after spending fifteen months at Australia’s other primary broadcaster, Austereo (where he hosted shows on 2DayFM and Triple M), during which time he also hosted the famous “National Hot 30 Countdown”.

The opportunity to branch out in to stand-up comedy came when Paul entered Triple J’s RAW comedy competition, making the final after only three comedy appearances. After also becoming a finalist a few weeks later in the Green Faces national comedy competition, Paul instantly became a regular at comedy clubs all over Perth.

“Paul’s professional, yet casual approach as Master of Ceremonies ensures that every crowd takes an instant liking to him. He has an exceptional talent in being able to read an audience and react to any situation instantly giving him total control of the audience”.
Steve Loe – Managing Director, Precedent Productions

The opportunity to branch out in to stand-up comedy came when Paul entered Triple J’s RAW comedy competition, making the final after only three comedy appearances. After also becoming a finalist a few weeks later in the Green Faces national comedy competition, Paul instantly became a regular at comedy clubs all over Perth.

Paul moved back to Sydney a few months later as a full-time stand-up comedian where he supported some of Australia’s biggest comedy acts, including Tom Gleeson, Greg Fleet, Julia Morris and Ahn Do.

During this time he performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Sydney Cracker Comedy Festival. In 2010 he performed his first live TV comedy spot on Network Ten’s ‘Thursday Night Live’.

Whilst slogging it out in the comedy clubs by night, he began to pursue his career as a voice-artist. Seven years later and Paul is a regular promo voice for two major TV networks (Nine Network and ABC) and has voiced TV and radio campaigns, corporate videos and animated productions for some of the biggest brands and advertisers in the country (including Subway, Coca-Cola, Sony, Optus, Volkswagen and many more).

As an accomplished musician, he played in an original rock band for four years on the Sydney and east coast circuit, appearing with the likes of Grinspoon and Lo-tel.

In addition to presenting in corporate videos and television commercials, Paul is also regularly booked as an MC for corporate events and functions including the Sydney Local Business Awards, Fairfax Media and Virgin Mobile.

Paul joined the Nine Network as a presenter on the then ‘Mornings with Kerri-Anne’ show, (now ‘Today Extra’) and has hosted live studio and location advertorials for the past 5 years.

In 2016, Paul became a fully accredited real-estate auctioneer and conducts property auctions for well know real-estate agencies around Sydney.

Kind words

It is my absolute pleasure to work with Paul Hancock. Over the last 8 years I’ve seen Paul develop from one of Sydney most enthusiastic radio street team members into a confident, reliable, trust worthy, humorous and exceptional radio talent. Paul excels in everything he turns his attention to – from on air announcing, presenting, voice over, event MC and comedy performer. Paul is, without doubt, one of the industry’s best young talents. Tim Dwyer

Head Of Tactics, Triple M Sydney

Paul has been the regular male voice of our kids’ channels for a year or so. He’s reliable and professional and he always puts in a big effort to deliver what we’re after. He understands promos and is skilled at adjusting to varying pace requirements, doing cold reads or fitting in to existing cuts. He also shows a good sense of comedy and comic timing. He takes direction well, he’s easygoing and a pleasure to work with. Mike Watson

and a few kind words…

I’ve watched Paul grow from a kid starting out into one of the best in the business. He listens, he learns (fast) and he gets it. He’s not someone we hire in, he’s part of our team. Committed to giving us exactly what we want and making sure we’re 100% happy.

There are a million voices out there but there’s only one Paul. If you’re tossing up between him and someone else – go with Paul, he’ll give you more. Simple as that. Rob Rosenberg

Creative Director , One HD

Paul’s professional, yet casual approach as Master of Ceremonies ensures that every crowd takes an instant liking to him. His positive fun and high energy stage presence occurs from start to finish of the events. He has an exceptional talent in being able to read an audience and react to any situation instantly giving him total control of the audience.

Paul is very accommodating with our management and technical team. His contribution makes each of our twenty Business Awards a huge success. Steve Loe

Managing Director , Precedent Productions

I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with Paul for many years and can honestly say he is one of the most down to earth, hardworking and multi-talented people I have come across. His positive attitude and openness to feedback and collaboration makes him quite unique in what is usually a very competitive and often ‘precious’ industry.

I cannot speak highly enough of him and would be very happy to talk to anyone who is considering working with him and wants to know what they’re in for! Shandra Moran

Program Director/Assistant Program Director, Nova 93.7 Perth / Nova 96.9 Sydney

Since Paul joined the Kerri-Anne Team, in 2010, his strengths and abilities as a presenter have continued to improve to the benefit of our many happy clients.

Paul’s sense of humour has always made working with him enjoyable, both in the studio and outside, and the fact that he can nail a four minute advertorial to the second has the clients asking for Paul again, and makes my life a lot easier. Stewart Ritchie

Advertorial Producer , Mornings With Kerri-Anne Channel 9

As a comedy booker and producer I book Paul regularly as both a stand up comedian and for hosting shows. He’s always proven to be very reliable, punctual and professional. Paul is very likable and has a warm and lovely energy about him which has resulted in a great appeal among audiences.

“I’ve always found him entertaining and a delight to work with and will continue to work with him at any given opportunity. Ollie Simon

“For the past 18 months I have had the pleasure of co-presenting advertorials with Paul Hancock at Channel 9 Studios in Sydney on the set of ‘Mornings with Kerri Anne’.

Paul is a professional, confident and natural entertainer as well as a great presenter and host. In terms of on-camera presenting, Paul creates an easy presenting partnership and allows his co-presenter to bounce off his repertoire. Paul has a great ability to adapt to situations and still communicate the message making him the preferred talent for many advertorial presentations.

I know that when I am working on-screen with Paul, we are guaranteed a great response and a good laugh! With his warmth, Paul is the ideal candidate to host a variety of shows that require “live” on-your-feet, quick-witted entertainment. James Cheney

TV Presenter and MC, Take Two Marketing and Events

When we book Paul on a “various”, every writer wants in on his session, because he can voice and voice act. Paul’s a great choice to launch a burger, a band, a new SUV. He’s the hapless boyfriend, the larrikin mate, the apprentice sparky. He’s the guy in the street with muesli bar samples and a mic.

Oh, yeah, and he’s also a fabulous choice when you want a nice, flexible and funny guy (who knows way too much about tennis). Emily Rice
