Mel Buttle

Comedian and columnist
Mel Buttle is a hilarious bundle of contradictions, and she’s a package that is rapidly making herself felt in all mediums, right across the country. Originally from Brisbane, she has been performing on the live comedy circuit across the country for years. As well as live performance, she is a seasoned writer with a weekly column in The Courier-Mail, writing on ABC2 and Pivot TV’s award winning Please Like Me, and Network Ten’s This Week Live. You may have seen Mel appearing on Network Ten’s The Project and This Week Live or on ABC TV’s Tractor Monkeys, Back Seat Drivers or It’s A Date. In 2015, Mel found out she could have her cake and eat it too scoring the job of co-host on The Great Australian Bake Off for Foxtel’s LifeStyle Channel alongside her friend Claire Hooper and judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran. Bake Off will be returning in 2017 with its third season.
