Justin Karcher

As a lad, Justin wasn’t sure whether to be a professional soccer player, test cricketer or AFL footballer. So he became an accountant.

After University, Justin travelled to the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan, before lobbing in beautiful New Guinea where he ran several businesses. He became the head of AFL-PNG, arranged rugby league tournaments and organized visits by prominent Australian sporting personalities. He was also held up at gunpoint three times.

Finally dragging himself away from the tropical paradise of Port Moresby, Justin settled in Queensland. In 2006 he was contracted to be the National Manager of the ‘World’s Greatest Shave’ for the Leukaemia Foundation, helping raise over $12.5m, a Guinness World Record. Meanwhile, his growing reputation as an organiser and presenter of entertaining, profitable sporting functions saw that business take off. Not only were his clients happy (Justin helped sporting clubs raise more than $10 million in the past six years alone) but past and present stars were clamouring to get on board.

So these days Justin isn’t sure whether to be a passionate Master of Ceremonies, a brilliant Auctioneer or an accomplished Comedian. So he’s become all of them! His high-energy performances have earned him rave notices. He’s relaxed, confident and very funny. Not bad for an accountant!

“Justin had a great sense of humor, was very engaging and worked the crowd perfectly. The auctions were just amazing, he was just unbelievable. He was extremely professional, very easy to work with and communicated very clearly with everyone. From the minute he got there he took charge which was just great – you could tell he had a genuine interest in our event, we would have him back anytime and are already planning our next event – we are so happy with how it all went”
