Amos Gill is one of the hottest young comedians in the country, dividing his time between stand up, radio, TV hosting and acting. A beloved Adelaide figure thanks to his hosting position on the Amos, Cat & Angus show on Hit107, until recently his voice could be heard every morning. After four years as full-time breaky host on the flagship station for Australia’s biggest broadcaster Southern Cross Austereo, in 2018 Amos announced that he was giving up breakfast radio’s notorious 4am rises for good and heading to the USA to crack a comedy scene in which he has already carved out a name for himself.
After an impressive appearance as finalist in triple j’s national RAW Comedy competition, Amos went on to earn a nomination for the ‘Best Emerging Comedian’ and ‘People’s Choice’ awards at the 2013 Adelaide Fringe for his solo show You’ve Changed. MICF 2013 saw Amos hand-selected by one of the festival directors to host the prestigious Comedy Zone; showcasing four of Australia’s best new comedians. In 2014 he was once again honoured by MICF with a ‘Best Newcomer’ nomination.
In 2013 Amos hosted Wacky World Beaters for ABC3, before being recruited as a recurring guest on Jimeoin‘s FIFA World Cup-focused series The Full Brazilian (SBS) and in a starring role for Fox Footy sitcom Four Quarters. In Feb 2018 Amos hosted Adelaide Football Club’s second TV series, Footy Plus – which concentrated on the South Australian sporting landscape. The series aired on Friday night TV (Channel 7) as well as on the AFC’s digital platform to an audience that ranks among the biggest in Australian club sport.
He has appeared on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) ABC Allstars Comedy Gala in 2017 and has been featured on ABC2’s Comedy Up Late, and the Comedy Channel’s Just For Laughs series’.
A staple headliner at all the top comedy venues and festivals in Australia and the USA, Amos was recently invited by Jim Jefferies to join him on his Australian arena tour, as well as at New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden to a sell-out crowd.
