Angella DRAVID - comedian

Names A- Z



Chris MARTIN (England)

A sell-out success at the 2013 and 2014 NZ Comedy Festival, back in 2017 with a new show

Chris Martin's wholly original social commentary, observations and anecdotes are his trade mark.
He brings intelligent material as well as simple immature jokes to any room.

Chris made his NZ debut at the 2012 NZ International Comedy Festival proving popular with local audiences. Returned in 2013 and 2014 with sellout seasons at The Classic, San Fran in Wellington and Q Theatre in Auckland. Chris has also toured around Australia and is regular at the Edinburgh Fringe. 

You might have seen him do stand up comedy on telly having recently been on Live at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, or acting in ITV's Horrible Science

Chris and his good friend Carl Donnelly also have a really fun podcast, The Chris Martin and Carl Donnelly Comedy Podcast, which you can listen to anywhere in the world (probably excluding North Korea).
