As a comedian, writer, singer, television and radio presenter: Em Rusciano is one of the most well rounded and talented performers in Australia. After cracking a few good notes in the shower in her early twenties, Em auditioned for “Australian Idol”, finally making the top ten during the show’s fabulously popular second season. Then, after showcasing some decent quips in her post-Idol interviews, Em was snapped up by the Austereo radio network. Going on to host Perth’s 92.9 breakfast radio show for four years, Em interviewed Prime Ministers, traded baby-stories with suburban mums and jammed with the Black Eyed Peas. She riffed on everything from US politics, to post-natal depression to Lady Gaga’s man-bits, and drove the network to ratings supremacy, year after year. Network Ten’s “The Project” noticed Em’s special something and hired her as a presenter in 2010. Em has been with “The Project” since its first week on air and has presented many stories including “Behind the Scenes of Master Chef in New York”. Em regularly presents the "Metro Whip" segment as Melbourne's correspondent. Em also appeared on the “The Circle” a number of times as a guest host. In 2011 Em thought she would try her hand at cabaret and so she wrote, produced, directed and starred in "The Sainly bitch sings". It was received so well she decided to put a show into the 2012 Melbourne Cabaret Festival. "Em Rusciano - The Musical!" sold out before the run started and she received a prestigious Green room award nomination for her efforts. The 2013 Melbourne international Comedy festival was calling so Em wrote another one woman show called "Puberty Rhythm and Blues". The show was a smash, she sold out her season, added extra shows and recived rave reviews including four and a half starts from The Herald Sun and five stars from Theatre people. Em's most recent show "Divorce the Musical" received 5 stars at the Adelaide Fringe festival and 4.5 stars at the 2014 Melbourne International Comedy festival. She enjoyed another sold out season and is now touring the show around the country. Em has been the face and voice for various advertising campaigns for Nissan, Recoverlyte, Kan Tong, Australian Scholarships Group, Tontine and Terry White Chemists. Em also writes a lot of the campaigns that she is involved with. As a popular, funny and commanding MC Em has hosted various high profile events including Fashion Aid at Crown Casino, the Khloe Kardasian appearance at Highpoint, various corporate events for Adidas and Footlocker, the Chill Out and Midsumma Festivals. Em is a regular panellist on Studio ten and Mornings on Nine. As a writer Em contributes to TV week, The Herald Sun, Show and Tell and Mamamia. Em is represented by Andrew Taylor Management.
