"Silly stuff played impressively straight" - Sydney Morning Herald
Known for his hilarious and empathetic characters, Dylan Hesp is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor, who brings the loveable losers of our world to life on both the screen and stage.
Launching onto the stand-up scene in 2012, Dylan was chosen to perform in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s prestigious Raw Comedy National Final, and since then has gone on to support acts like Sam Simmons, Dave O'Neill, Lehmo & Cal Wilson.
Online, Dylan's character comedy shorts have received over a million views and have been viewed and shared by a growing audience around the globe who keep returning to Dylan's unique brand of comedy.
In 2017, Dylan co-created and starred in the multi-platform comedy series Australia's Best Street Racer, as part of Screen Australia and Screen Tasmania's #ComedyConcentrate initiative. 'Street Racer' was met with overwhelming industry response, with the ABC's Head of Comedy claiming "He hadn't seen character acting like this since Chris Lilley!"
Street Racer has since been commissioned for a spin off series, currently in development for the ABC alongside One Stone Pictures. Whilst Dylan was handpicked by the team at Jungle Entertainment to star in his breakout role alongside Sacha Horler and Phil Lloyd as Eric in Sando on ABC TV.
