JOEL Creasey is a busy bee these days and he would not change it for the world.

In the last several months, Creasey has gone on tour, released a book, hosted the 40th Sydney Mardi Gras and Eurovision for SBS, met Cher and bought a house.

He still managed to find time to squeeze in a whirlwind 10-hour trip back to his hometown of Perth for one show only last night at the Winter Fest Dome in Yagan Square.

Speaking to Community News about 40 minutes before his 6pm show, Creasey revealed he was not able to hang around for long.

“I will do the show, have dinner with my parents then I am on the red-eye back home; so this is a really chill day,” he said.

“But it is a fun job so I can’t complain.”

As if his spare time was not limited enough with his flourishing career, Creasey has begun renovating.

“I just bought a house so I had that first home buyer panic ‘why did I do this?’, meanwhile everyone on my Instagram is on holiday in Mykonos,” he said.

“I said to my boyfriend ‘so many invoices are coming in, I might need to do another celebrity reality show to pay it all off’.”

There is no sign of slowing down just yet for Creasey, with his first Netflix special to be filmed later this year.

It comes hot on the heels of Hannah Gadsby’s highly acclaimed stand-up show Nanette.

“I have seen Nanette, I saw it live and there is some pressure now because the bar has been set so high,” he said.

“But my act could not be any different to Hannah’s; you are not going to learn anything from my show.

“You might even be dumber after it.”
