Channel Seven has announced that Aussie comedian Joel Creasey has been chosen as the host of its new dating series Take Me Out.
One of the hottest comedians in the world, the 27-year-old has hosted big TV events including the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala and Just For Laughs.
In the world of stand-up, Creasey has sold out tours across Australia, the UK, Asia and the US.
Now as host of Take Me Out, he is desperate to find spontaneous, vivacious and outgoing dateless girls and guys over the age of 18 who are ready for a whole lot of love and laughs, and prepared to do whatever it takes for an exotic weekend escape with their dream date.

“Across the world, Take Me Out is just so much ridiculous fun; a hilarious and wild ride. Take Me Out is like a front row seat to the awkward moment when a guy walks up to a woman at a bar. Pass me the popcorn and something alcoholic, waiter!” Creasey said.
“I’ve had my fair share of bad dates and I know how important it is to kick it off right on national TV in front of a live crowd. I can’t wait to help Australians strike that match and let the love in on Take Me Out.
I also can’t wait to make my debut on Channel Seven. Joel Creasey on Channel Seven? Watch out Kochie, I’m coming in hot!”
Jonathon Summerhayes, director of programming at FremantleMedia Australia, said: “There is no one like Joel Creasey hosting on Australian television. He is outrageous, lightning-fast and whip-smart, just like the show itself.
“Take Me Out with Joel at the helm will have a totally fresh, edgy energy and his ability to relate to the singles will shine. He’s the perfect modern matchmaker.”
