Performer Bio

Ashleigh McFarland

Ashleigh McFarland

Ashleigh developed her love of musicals and plays in secondary school.

It was further cemented at LaTrobe student theatre, with opportunities to travel interstate and spend 2 months in Indonesia developing collaborative theatre projects.

She performs regularly at The Improv Conspiracy as part of Harold Night’s, F@ck This I Quit and Hunks 4 U. Ashleigh has also performed in the 2022 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festival in the cabaret performance of She-Nanigans the Show, written by Chido Mwat.

When she’s not performing she’s rehearsing comedy material in front of the toughest crowd there is, her class of prep students!
