Elliot Goblet is a comedy character created by the Australian comedian Jack Levi. The character is known for the deadpan delivery of one-line jokes and the style compares with the American comic Steven Wright. At first Goblet appeared with round glasses and a goatee beard, but the beard was later removed.
Created with assistance from Australian comedy teacher Pete Crofts, the Goblet character was launched onto the comedy scene with numerous TV performances on Hey Hey It's Saturday, The Eleventh Hour, Statesmen of Comedy and other Australian TV variety and sketchy shows.
As Goblet, Levi recorded the ARIA award-nominated CD Internally Berserk, wrote the book Business According To Goblet and has appeared in short films as well as the feature film Fat Pizza. He has also hosted the Qantas comedy audio program on all of their flights worldwide.
Levi has performed as Goblet around Australia as well as in seven other countries, including the United States and England. Apart from doing occasional public performances or weddings, most of his work is at corporate events as a performer or master of ceremonies.
Together with Mitchell Faircloth (aka "Slim Whittle"), Levi created the Crimson Goat Cabaret Club.
In April 2015 a new comedy album, Goblet's Greatest Bits", was released and a portion of the proceeds from the album are going to two causes, the Father Bob Maguire Foundation and Les Twentyman's 20th Man Fund.
