Concetta-Caristo

Concetta Caristo is a charismatic powerhouse who shines brightly across stage, screen and radio/podcasting airwaves.

A comedian, improviser, actor and activist, Concetta’s poignant one-woman play ‘Loose’ played to sold-out crowds and critical acclaim in 2019. Woven around her escape from domestic violence, it was selected to be part of the 2020 Batch Festival at Griffin Theatre Company.

You’ve seen her as a regular on ABC’s At Home Alone Together, PedestrianTV, and Channel 10’s Celebrity Name Game. Her interview with The Kids Helpline about Toxic Relationships has been viewed over 1.7 million times.

An Improv Theatre Sydney trained improviser, she is a two-time Cranston Cup Grand Finalist and performs as one third of improv group Snake Pit. A radio regular, she’s been heard on 2RRR and The Thinker Girls, as well as hosting FBi Radio’s life-advice segment “Going Raw with Concetta Caristo.”

Bringing a magnetic personality with boundless energy and depth to each of her projects, Concetta is quickly becoming one of the most promising new voices in Australian comedy.
