Portrait of Janet McLeod

Janet McLeod

Janet McLeod is a much-loved host/writer of trivia nights and live events across Melbourne and beyond. She hosts Storytime for State Library Victoria (both online and live), runs weekly standup show Local Laughs, and is cohost of cult-fave movie show Cinema Fiasco where she and her friend Geoff show B-grade movies in cinemas and provide a live commentary while they play.

An early adopter of Zoom during Melbourne lockdowns, Janet has hosted over 350 online trivia and comedy events and was tech director and driving force for Kirsty Webecks Zoom Comedy Hour and Ivan Aristeguietas interactive cooking show About This Much.

Janet is an incorrigible collector of toys, costumes, artefacts, ornaments and...well...stuff in general. She lists her greatest ambition as cleaning up and her greatest fear as moving house.
