If Amy Schumer and Rebel Wilson had a love child, you’d get Tanya Hennessy – comedian, radio announcer and social media sensation. Tanya’s not just multi-platform force, she’s a content creator whose comedic chops have earnt her a Facebook following in excess of 1.1 million. Her total views on Facebook are staggering – over 750 million.
Tanya began 2020 with a bang by appearing on the sixth season of “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here “for Network 10. She also appeared as a panellist on “Hughesy! We Have a Problem” , Celebrity Name Game, The Living Room, The Loop and Drunk History.
In 2018 Tanya wrote her first book – “AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?” with Allen & Unwin was released, which, after 3 months became an Australian Best Seller. Her second book, Help Self, released in November 2020 was also a great success.
Tanya has been an ambassador for Priceline Pharmacy for two years running – she teamed up with their cosmetic brand MODELS PREFER, in 2019 and released her own cosmetics line, which sold out online in 24 hours and in stores in three days. Her second makeup line is due in 2021.
IN 2019, Tanya embarked on her first live comedy tour “Low Expectations” and sold out 27 venues around the country with Frontier Touring.
Originally from Newcastle, Tanya began her radio career in 2012 and continued to 2019. She has two ACRA awards to her name, best entertainment presenter and best documentary. In 2020, Tanya began a new phase with her podcast ‘I Can’t Stop’, an exclusive Spotify original on the platform.
Tanya’s a prolific creator; her funny and brutally honest online videos of everyday topics (things people say to hairdressers, things people say to personal trainers) mean she has built a worldwide following which in turn has attracted big brands such as Disney, Kellogs, ANZ Netflix, FORD and Finish. She also performed in an original Facebook Watch series “The Unboxing” for Channel Seven.
A multi-media star in the true sense, Tanya’s engaging and comedic take on life across all platforms, is growing her audience exponentially in Australia and internationally.
