Jonathan Brough

Comedy with substance.


Brough’s career kicked off in style, when his second short film “The Mode” won a slot at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, as part of a special season of New Zealand shorts.

Brough began making his mark in Australia in 2011, with award-winning ghost series “Spirited”. In 2013, Brough directed “It’s a Date”, a comedy series which pulled its fictional daters from a cast of over 130, and many of those being some of Australia’s finest comedy actors. He has amassed an impressive list of nominations for his work in Australian TV comedy. More than once he has ended up competing against himself in the same category.

With over 20 years of professional experience, his work has screened at the Cannes, Edinburgh, Hof, Slamdance, Berlin (Interfilm) and Sydney Film Festivals, and screened internationally on Comedy Central, SundanceTV, BBC and Netflix.
