Australian broadcaster, author and writer Wendy Harmer is one of Australia’s most versatile and much-loved entertainers.
From being born with a severe facial deformity, Wendy’s gone on to perform as a stand-up comedian, a national television host and was the highest paid woman in Australian radio when she led 2Day FM’s Breakfast Show for 11 years. She’s hosted on ABC Sydney in the years since, and written multiple books, including the children’s series Pearlie in the Park.
As a trailblazer for women in media and comedy Wendy’s story is extraordinary, and it’s captured it in her memoir Lies My Mirror Told Me.
Wendy joined Laura on UNDISTRACTED to talk about the space she carved in entertainment, finding love later in life and how she feels about being called a feminist.
