Whether you’re after a Comedic Entertainer, Singer/Guitarist, roaming minstrel, crazy street-performer, professional mc, DJ or any other character… Brett Hartley can and probably has done it!!! I have been a professional entertainer for nearly 20 years, and have also coordinated many small and large theatrical and musical productions. I have also produced and managed many other events: both private and corporate. For the past few years, I have been performing professionally for “Dirty Dick’s Theatre Restaurant”. This has also involved travelling to many regional towns around Australia, as well as coordinating and directing many touring shows in Queensland, NSW & Victoria. I have Stage managed and worked behind the scenes on many other events, such as World Youth day & The Sydney Olympics Opening/Closing Ceremony.
