Elliot Goblet is a character created by the Australian comedian Jack Levi.

Elliot Goblet is one of Australia's most original[peacock term] comedy characters and he is renowned[by whom?] for his deadpan delivery of one-liners and unique intellectual humour. His style can draw comparisons with that of the American comic Steven Wright.[citation needed] He started out with round glasses and a goatee beard, but he later removed the beard.

Created with assistance from Australian comedy guru[peacock term] Pete Crofts, the Goblet character launched into the comedy scene with numerous TV performances on Hey Hey It's Saturday, The Eleventh Hour, Statesmen of Comedy, and many other Australian TV variety and sketch shows. He recorded the ARIA award-nominated CD Internally Berserk,[1] wrote the best-selling book Business According To Goblet, and appeared in short films and also the feature film Fat Pizza. A highlight[citation needed] of Goblet's career was the hosting of the Qantas comedy audio program on all Qantas flights world-wide.

Levi as Elliot Goblet has done live appearances all over Australia, as well as in seven other countries, including the United States and England. Currently, apart from doing occasional public performances or weddings, most of his work is at corporate events as a performer or MC.[2]

Together with Mitchell Faircloth (aka Slim Whittle), he created The Crimson Goat Cabaret Club.
