His longstanding host role in Playschool, as well as in other children's classic programs, such as the Sarge in Tim Winton's classic Lockie Leonard have led to his involvement in various children's events, activities and fundraisers.

Rhys has MC'd, hosted and performed at countless events, including key note speaker at the Sydney Swans 25th Anniversary Dinner, Sydney University's annual Blue and Gold debates, St Kilda Football Club President's Dinner, Premier of NSW Annual Concert, Conference of Local Councils Qld, The Law Society Qld, Nickelodean's Big Top, Carols by Candlelight (ACT), and many, many more.

Playing either himself, or someone else, Rhys' talents as a performer, entertainer and host in conjunction with his broad interests and experiences can add more than a little character to your event.


We were extremely pleased with the outcome of the event – over 150,000 dollars was raised – and have no doubt Rhys’s performance was integral to this result. Combining humour(lots of it) and also the sentiment required for an event of this nature Rhys was able to effectively keep the crowd organised and engaged for the whole night. I would thoroughly recommend Rhys Muldoon as an MC in any capacity.
- Craig Bolton, Sydney Swan - Streetswags

Rhys Muldoon is the consummate entertainer at corporate or charity functions and this will confirm that I have engaged his services on a regular basis over the past decade for our 'Blue & Gold' sporting luncheons. Rhys has an extremely well developed sense of humour and his presence at these functions always ensures plenty of spontaneous laughter, which creates the ideal atmosphere for the function's principal objectives (eg fundraising or public relations) to be achieved. Rhys is very adept in the role of MC or host. Rhys Muldoon is also a most likeable and reliable bloke. He prepares thoroughly, never lets you down and provides excellent value for money.
