Amelia Ryan is an award-winning cabaret artist, writer, presenter and coach, known for her quick-wit and quirk. A musical theatre actress by trade, she quickly swapped ‘Song and Dance’ for ‘Comedy and Cabaret’, when she realised her ability to do a time-step (or ANY step) paled in comparison to her knack for cracking quips.

In 2011, she penned and produced her autobiographical, one-woman show; A Storm in a D Cup. Selling out houses in Melbourne, Sydney and Wollongong, the show went on to win the 2012 Sydney Fringe Springboard Prize for most promising performer, and co-win the 2012 Australian Cabaret showcase. In 2013, she toured to Australia’s major cabaret festivals; Melbourne, Noosa, Ballarat and Adelaide, and was then invited to take the show to the 2013 New York Musical Theatre Festival. In 2014, she won the Adelaide Fringe Weekly award for Best Cabaret during her season in the Garden Of Unearthly Delights.

A sought-after presenter and MC, Amelia cemented her skills through NIDA’s one year presenter program. She co-hosted the 2013 Mardi Gras for Inside Out TV, is a regular presenter on Car Tell TV, and has MC’d for Better Homes and Gardens Live, The Australian Burlesque Festival, The International Cabaret Contest and The Adelaide Cabaret Festival.

Now based in Adelaide (and loving it!), she’s having a ball making her mark on this fabulous city. Described as having a ‘big heart behind her impressive front’ (Adelaide Now), she’s runs a coaching and mentoring business, inspiring women to celebrate their own story and shine.
