Nicolette Minster is a Melbourne based comedian, actor, and writer, who despite wishing it otherwise is best known as the woman from the viral MYSTERY OF THE WASHING BASKET sketch video that has received over 3.9mil views on YouTube. She was a cast member and writer on four seasons of Kinne Tonight (Network 10) and for over five years on Sammy J (ABC). She holds a BA Acting from Federation University and a BA Actor Musicianship (1st Class Honours) from Rose Bruford College, London.


From child actor with credits on Neighbours, Evil Angles (with Meryl Streep and Sam Neill) and cult classic Lift Off it’s been an understandably steady decline from there. 


Nicolette writes for TV and film mainly. Her recent broadcast writing credits include Rhys & Joel's Family Christmas, Thank God You’re Here, The Cheap Seats, Have You Been Paying Attention?, Larry the Wonderpup, The Legend of Burnout Barry and Erinsborough High.  Nicolette co-wrote psychological thriller feature The Girl at the Window which stars Radha Mitchell and Vince Colosimo, directed by Mark Hartley released theatrically in 2022. 

She is an AACTA award nominated producer for "The Future of Everything" and was selected for the 2023 ABC Fresh Blood initiative alongside LateNite's Nicholas Colla and writer/performer Vidya Rajan.


Thanks to science, Nicolette has a beautiful kid who she shares with her husband Nick. They share a house with Dorothy Michaels who is a big cat in a tiny cat’s body named after Dustin Hoffman’s character in Tootsie. Nicolette has recently discovered lap swimming and has a new undercut that she seriously regrets. 

Nicolette will tour her new live show BOREDROOM, directed by Claire Hooper to Sydney Comedy Festival

& Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2024.

Nicolette is represented by Michelle and Chris at Buxstock Comedy Management.
