Believe it or not, Lehmo started off his professional life as a Chartered Accountant. For many years - he says too many - Lehmo lived his life crunching numbers until he found the world of entertainment.
Lehmo’s radio career started as co-host of SAFM breakfast show in Adelaide. In 2007 and 2008 Lehmo co-hosted the weekday drive shift Wil & Lehmo on Triple M, having too much fun with his great mate Wil Anderson and an amazing variety of local and international guests. 2009 saw Lehmo team up with Brigitte Duclos to form Mix Mornings with Brig and Lehmo on Mix 101.1 for 3 years. In 2012 they took over the Gold FM breakfast shift and continue to entertain Melbourne with their unique brand of humour 6-9am weekdays.
Aside from being a regular co-host of The Project, filling in for Dave Hughes every Friday and Sunday, Lehmo is currently a panelist on the popular network 10 AFL show Before The Game. Every week during the AFL season the panel take a look at the lighter side of the game and interviews its biggest names. The show has been running since 2003 and has been Logie nominated for best sports show on seven occasions. Lehmo has also had regular guest spots on The Fat, The Glasshouse and has appeared on Good News Week, Hey Hey It's Saturday, Headliners, ROVE Live and even Neighbours.
Aside from radio and TV commitments and regularly headlining the top venues in Australia, Lehmo’s extraordinary knack of making people laugh has seen him jet around the world to excite audiences in New York, London, Edinburgh, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong.
He has also performed to sell out shows in the Adelaide Fringe Festival (2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012), the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (1999, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 , 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012) and the Edinburgh Fringe (1996 and 1997) with shows including ‘My Goodness, My Guinness’, Taxing Lyrical and White Line Comedy.
Lehmo's live credits across the U.K include the 1996 and 1997 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, the Comedy Store and Jongleurs - the largest chain of comedy clubs in Britain, and The Boston Comedy Club and The Gotham Comedy Club both in New York City.
Overseas television demand for Lehmo has seen him appear on England's BBC TV Comedy Showcase and as a regular compere on Britain's longest running television stand up show, Stand up Live.
