(National Winner RAW Comedy 2001) as seen on McLeod’s Daughters and directed by Kath and Kim’s Ted Emery in the motion picture “ The Honorable Wally Norman”.
In 2001 Emily was the first ever woman to win the National Raw Comedy Competition. In 2002 she came 2nd nationally in the Greenfaces comedy competition. Then, she went on to work as a support act for Puppetry of the Penis 2001 & 2003. One should never work with children, animals OR genitals! Soon she was filling in for the breakfast crew on Adelaide’s MMM Radio. Then she took on the blousy role of Caprice Cerise in the Aussie feature movie The Honourable Wally Norman directed by Ted Emery of Kath and Kim fame. She showed up next in Macleod’s Daughters where she played Constance, a lovely rural woman with a penchant for a tipple and a bawdy eye.
Em performed in “Life After Dick” (as an ex-Puppetry of the Penis supporter)for the 2006 Melbourne Int. Comedy Festival, and then toured W.A. and regional Victoria. Emily launch her first solo show “LifeSpam” as part of the 2007 Melbourne Fringe. “Brilliant storytelling” was one critics take on this show. Next saw her in “The Middle Ages” as part of the 2009 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the following year she trotted out her sell out show “HOW I MADE MY ARSE LOOK SMALLER SIMPLY BY PULLING MY HEAD OUT OF IT”. After Melbourne Comedy Festival and Perth’s Wild West Comedy Festival 2011 Em spent a big chunk of the year on tour to the US with her new show “Em O’Loughlin was a BIG FATTY BOOMBAH” in both Hollywood and New York. And this is what they said:
