AboutBJ Connolly, Author at The Creative Issue

BJ Connolly

BJ Connolly

I’m a Stand-Up Comedian with degree in Journalism from QUT. My proudest comedy moment to date was MCing a comedy show in Lismore, NSW which featured Aussie comedy legend Steady Eddy as the headliner. As a writer for The Creative Issue I aspire to give more exposure to some of Brisbane’s best local comedians by reviewing their gigs, interviewing them to discuss their biggest career achievements and to share their tips for aspiring young comedians. I love making jokes about my autism and using comedy as a platform to make light of all the awkward social encounters I experienced during my childhood and to inspire other people on the spectrum. I’m currently studying a Graduate Certificate in Digital Communication at QUT. Check out my website bjconnolly136.com
