Stephen Abbott is an enduring part of the Australian comedy landscape. While performing regularly over the past ten years as the Sandman or 'Sandy', Stephen has also found time to become an accomplished live performer, radio presenter, writer, actor and even recently turning his hand to bingo calling and hosting his own tonight show on SBS TV, In Siberia Tonight.

As the Sandman, Stephen has performed on a number of different radio programs, including: ABC radio serial The 21st in 2003; Triple M's Breakfast Show with Amanda Keller, Mikey Robins and Peter Berner in 2002; a radio serial called Sunstruck Guest House broadcast nationally on ABC radio in 2001/2/3; Triple J's Breakfast with Adam and Wil and Triple J's Drive show with Merrick and Rosso, in 1999-2000; Sandy also cohosted Triple J's Breakfast program with Mikey Robins and Jen Oldershaw in 1998 and in 1997 with Mikey Robins and Paul McDermott, before which he wrote and performed daily comedy segments for the Triple J Breakfast show 1992-until 2000.

Stephen regularly performed as Sandy on TV programs, such as The FaT on ABC TV, Good News Week, Good News Week Lite, Good News Weekend and in two TV specials with fellow comedian Flacco for Network Ten, and his own special on Network Ten in 2002, Speed Of Doubt. Stephen and Paul Livingston (aka Flacco) have developed a strong rapport and commonly perform together as Flacco and the Sandman, both on TV and live on tour.

Stephen's TV work has also included David Caesar's documentary Fences and a documentary for SBS called Sandman In Siberia where Stephen and his mother return to the place where his grandmother was born.
