Some of you may know him as a mother of teenagers, a new young couple in love or even someone who gets super excited about folding T-shirts but you will definitely know him as Christian Hull and sometimes his wildly popular alter-ego Trish!
The comedian, writer, podcaster and content creator spent more than nine years working for Australia’s largest radio network SCA as National Digital Video Producer, creating hours of hilarious content for the national Carrie & Tommy Show with The Project‘s Carrie Bickmore and comedian Tommy Little. In his downtime, Christian would shoot off-the-cuff videos at home in his inner-city Melbourne apartment.
These solo home videos earned Christian a huge audience of his own from documenting his mess of a life all over socials. His hilarious characters and parenting parodies have earned Christian an ever-expanding army of followers: in just a year on TikTok he has grown his audience to 1.4m+ followers and almost 50 million likes on the platform. This is in addition to his existing 1.2m+ Facebook, 265K+ Instagram followers and 123,000 subscribers and 20m views on YouTube.
A simple clip of Christian using a T-shirt folding device sparked more joy than Marie Kondo, with the video he posted on Twitter and TikTok collecting 15 million views in just a couple of days and being picked up by world-renowned outlets including TIME Magazine and Good Morning America.
In 2016 Christian expanded his online short clips into longer-form episodes and the Complete Drivel podcast was born. Despite Christian’s assertion that Complete Drivel is ‘a complete waste of time’, the frank, honest and customarily kooky podcast continues to be a mainstay in the iTunes Top 50 thanks to Christian’s open discussion of everything from his sexual experiences to general chit-chat and updates on his life.
Christian began performing live in 2018 – taking Complete Drivel to the stages of big theatres and comedy clubs to 100% sold out houses – with 7889 of a possible 7890 tickets sold across 8 cities. He backed this up in 2019, selling out houses across the nation alongside Tanya Hennessy with their Low Expectations Tour, and again hit the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2021 with his acclaimed stand-up comedy solo debut.
Christian has built up a fiercely loyal, highly engaged fan base, resulting in Christian launching his ‘Fuck Off Empire‘ – when his “fuck off flower pendant” merchandise sold over 12,000 units globally, Christian swiftly expanded to a roll-on scent which ‘radiates fuck off energy’ called Farqovski.
