What are your thoughts on school education?

I would say school is the best place to get an education.

What value do you see in a University Degree?

There are two main benefits of a University Degree. Firstly, to achieve in whatever academic training that will benefit your future.

Secondly, spending time with like minded people pursuing the same goals.

Many of my best friends and workmates are still people I met in and around Uni.

What are your thoughts on the media hype surrounding child obesity?

It makes me hungry. Look stop picking on the fat kiddies, I was a fat kid back before it was an epidemic.

You could say I was ahead of my time. You could also say I really didn't like the gym.

Where did you go to school?

Newcastle High and Newcastle University.

Please tell us about your family.

I have been married for over ten years now to my wonderful and long suffering wife Laura.

What are your hobbies?

Is lunch a hobby? Actually these days I spend a couple of hours a week in the gym, which I've actually learnt to enjoy. Also cooking and I keep threatening to take up fishing.

What was your first job?

I worked as a dish washer at a really posh restaurant.

What are your career highlights?

Seven years on Triple J doing breakfast as well as Good News Week also bits of writing for magazines like GQ and Men's Style which although not lucrative are really enjoyable.

What do you value most in life?


What is your most unforgettable personal experience?

Probably losing over fifty kilos.

What is your favourite Australian destination and why?

Port Douglas - it's relaxed, the diving is fantastic as is the fishing.

What is your best overseas experience?

Gosh we love to travel but last year a trip back to Hong Kong was our best holiday ever.
The place has such an energising vibe to it much like New York but the food is much better.

What advice would you give to young aspiring comedians?

Whatever you do, don't listen to me.

Mikey Robins is one of Australia's best loved, intelligent, hilarious and most in demand entertainers. His career in both radio and TV has led him to become one of the most recognisable faces and voices in the Australian entertainment history.
