Comedian Jodie J Hill has worn many hats in her life, including touring with Armed Forces Entertainment as a host and MC to entertain troops in Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.
“It was a huge honor to entertain the troops, to spend time with them in the dining halls and to remind them of home,” Ms Hill said.
Now the comedian is a manager and auctioneer at SheSells Fairfield – a career move inspired by her father who had a real estate agency in South Australia.

Nath Valvo: Why the Melbourne comedian will rent forever
My first home was a four bedroom shared house in a beautifully renovated storefront in Fitzroy when I was in my twenties.
I lived with three other creatives from Adelaide and we hosted many jazz concerts, storytelling and poetry readings at home.
In 1996 we turned it into an official Fringe venue, where I performed my show Moving to Melbourne and Surviving – which ended up winning the festival’s Comedy Award and propelling my career.
We held it in the living room and got a liquor license to sell martinis under the stairs. Even our owner was present and loved it!
The house was amazing, it had a nice bathroom and a yard and it was right across from Fitzroy oval. We were thrilled to be able to rent something of this caliber…we loved this home and took good care of it.
I live in Thornbury now with my two beautiful boys. We moved here in 2021 from Fairfield, straight out of lockdown. It is a large and beautiful Californian bungalow with three bedrooms.
My eldest, who is 16, has the biggest room. I love sitting on the porch with my banjo and I’m a little crazy about hedges – I got into topiary during lockdown so there’s a bit of that going on.
Thornbury has some fantastic cafes and shops and it’s a really nice community here.
I love a brutalist design, so something big, bad and modern like the Marsala House in Perth.
But I wish it was in Carlton near the Royal Exhibition Building – it’s Melbourne’s most romantic suburb. Something nice with a view and a spare bedroom for my kids when they are older would be the dream. There is nothing more chic than having a guest bedroom!
