Andrew Barnett – a familiar face to Fox Sports viewers – will front the entertainment for the 39th National Print Awards Presentation Dinner to be held on Thursday 30 June at the Goldfields Theatre, Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
Best known as’ Barney’, he is the resident funny man on Sunday Night with Matty Johns and The Back Page. He also co-hosted several Fox network hit shows with James ‘The Professor’ Rochford, including The Night Watchman on Fox Cricket, Narrow World of Sports on Fox League and Fox Footy, and wrote and performed on The Professor’s Farewell Tour and The Professor’s Second Year Syndrome.
A performer of stand-up since 2010 when he was a NSW Finalist in Raw Comedy, he has since presented solo shows including Whys Man, The Funny One and Confessions of a Hide and Seek Player. He has performed sold-out shows at Comedy Clubs and Festivals across Australia and New Zealand, including the Sydney Fringe, Spectrum Now and Sydney Comedy festivals.
Peter Clark, president of host organisation Print & Visual Communication Association (PVCA), describes him as “warm, personable and hilarious, and widely acclaimed for his relaxed style which belies a quick mind and razor-sharp wit. He will be a terrific addition to the program for the industry’s night of nights.”
The program will also include a sumptuous dinner with the highlight being the presentation of the highly-sought print excellence and special recognition awards.
