Nikki Osborne, a born and bred Queenslander, grew up game fishing, go karting and downing dominos while watching the Broncos.  Growing up in her model sister’s shadow, Nikki, the less attractive one, learned to grab the spotlight with Michael Jackson impersonations and fart jokes.

Bravely Nikki at 17 with a Face full of braces auditioned for QUT’s prestigious acting academy. After auditioning against 2000 other hopefuls, Nikki’s Dad was in shock when one of the 15 spots on offer was awarded to Osborne for a comedic rendition of Romeo and Juliet   Nikki’s Dad was quoted “I thought it was funny that Juliet is arguing with herself on a balcony about a dude she’s crushing on hard”.

Being one of only 6 who graduated from the grueling degree of acting, Nikki continues working alongside Australia’s biggest comedic talents such as Mick Molloy, Steve Vizard, Ronny Chieng, Nick Cody and Troy Kinne.

Nikki’s comedic talents were made obvious when hosting the late night quiz show on Channel 9, Quizmania, where Nikki was often required to ad lib when the phones were down.  Happening quite a lot allowed Osborne to practice comedic material on LIVE television and was often quoted in the papers the following day.

Not much has changed since Osborne’s first stand up show “On The Spectrum” became the most controversial and talked about show of the 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, attracting national and international press. Despite the subversive nature of the topic, Nikki was praised by audiences and peers for her hilarious yet heart felt content.

Despite having worked with Oscar winning directors on award winning series, Nikki Osborne is happiest delivering original material and is currently writing a comedy TV series.
