Host: Andrew O'Keefe

Andrew originally trained as a lawyer, following in the footsteps of his late father, the esteemed former Supreme Court judge Barry O’Keefe. But entertainment was also
in his blood – not surprising as his uncle was Australian rock and roll legend Johnny O’Keefe - and Andrew also trained as a classical singer.

Andrew’s television career started with the ARIA-nominated sketch comedy Big Bite. Since then, in addition to Sunrise and 11 seasons of Seven’s Deal or No Deal, he
has co-hosted the historic tri-network tsunami appeal Reach Out to Asia (in 2004), the Logie Awards (in 2005) and two seasons of The Rich List (2007-2008).

In 2013, Andrew took to the stage playing the role of King Herod in the Australian tour of the Jesus Christ Superstar arena show. However, he was forced to relinquish the role when he injured his neck during a performance. Andrew is also a passionate advocate of social justice. He is Chairman of the White Ribbon Campaign (to end violence against women) and was a member of the expert Committee which drafted Australia’s National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children. He is also a proud supporter of Amnesty International, the Garvan Gene Research Institute and the Bell Shakespeare Company. He and wife Eleanor have three children, Barnaby James, Rory Ignatius and Olive Mary.

Andrew is dressed by M.J. Bale.
