then Tracy Bartram is the CEO of chemists.
As if in a mirror held up to our own travails, dreams and perceptions, our experience of day-to-day life, friends, family, relationships; awkward, unfamiliar and otherwise, her foundations in humour are rock solid… reliable.
She gets people. She makes it obvious laughter is a life force, a fuel for empowerment, a therapy to overcome, an axis of survival. Laughter is a must.
Tracy is a Laughaholic. It comes naturally. She is tickle-fit. She has been lifting weight from people’s lives for more than 30 years. And she accepts no barriers in her conveyance of the well-being that laughter brings.
She is multifarious… on stage before a live stand-up audience, or in her band, in laughter workshops for business teams, working as a media trainer and, defying traditional formats on screen and on the airwaves, as a festival or function MC or commanding podiums as a keynote speaker in the corporate community.
Riding a razor’s edge, challenging typecasts and saying ‘no’ to the cowardly perpetuation of social stigmas, she re-sets the model on how we communicate, on how we observe, on how to laugh in the face of adversity – and then skip onward, thoughts still pinging from her hilarious revelations.
Her brand of fun becomes apparent as a kind of primal commodity.
“Everywhere I go, I meet people who want more laughter” says Bartram.
Steve Kyte Media
“We first worked together at ABC Radio in Melbourne. I asked Tracy to present our flagship Breakfast program over the summer of 2005. I loved her energy, passion for radio and her authenticity. Oh and her fabulous laugh!
The audience reaction was terrific. After that first successful run of programs, Tracy became a regular on the station, presenting Breakfast, Afternoon, Evening and Weekend programs.”
Chief Executive Officer
“We deliberately went after Tracy to join our network (Australian Radio Network) because Tracy knows how to engage an audience.
I have worked with some amazing talent but Tracy epitimises the kind of work ethic in combo with talent that is required to make it big in Radio especially Breakfast Radio.”
Andrew ‘Bag’ Sidwell
Head of Content & Experience

“I’ve known Tracy through a creative work lens since her Fox days.
What I saw was a creative spirit that knows how to create unexpected work that people are eager to watch, listen to, buy and be a part of.”
Today, still, she is reaffirming that you have to live a little to get a true handle on yourself. And with the grip of experience comes trust.
You can trust her to draw a crowd, to nail the rigours of a hot-live stage, to snap to cue in a sound studio or broadcast setting and to be on point with the requisite KPIs that frame outcomes in important work. She delivers perfect escapism.
Tracy has a back-catalogue of life lessons but she also has her own ideas…
concepts that form her hard-earned insights.
She knows that…
animals need love
males strive for equality, too
She is town and country. And she is an an everyday but extraordinary interloper, regularly passing through – and often stopping to stay, just for the experience.
Her instantly recognisable face, her naughty, infectious, rasping laugh and her desire to engage – and always follow-up to learn more from her audiences – have solidified her as an enduring entity on the international scene.
The Scotsman’ voted her Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show Best Show. But more than that; she’s instantly familiar … magnetic in her field.
Tracy Bartram is an icon on the comedic stock market, the ever-rising unflappable commodity you’ll love jangling around in your psyche.
