Star of US version of The Office to tour Australia
The Office star Creed Bratton is bringing his variety show tour to Australia next year.

Set to hit Australian shores in February 2020, Creed’s variety show – which includes live music, stand-up comedic and untold stories from both his life and time on The Office – will land in capital cities around Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth.
While many will know Creed Bratton as the mysterious, eccentric and hilarious character from the hit TV series The Office (US) and for roles in comedic hits like The Mask, the US comedian is also an established musician, with a career in music that spans nearly five decades.
As lead guitarist for American rock group the Grass Roots, Creed played on the band’s first four albums, shaping their folk rock/psychedelic pop sounds, before breaking away in the 1970’s to pursue a solo career and comedic work.
