Carey Marx

Carey MarxWINNER – BEST INTERNATIONAL SHOW – NEW ZEALAND COMEDY FESTIVAL 2009 and 2011

NOMINATED BEST SHOW – LEICESTER COMEDY FESTIVAL 2009

Carey Marx has been a circuit favourite for years mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischeivious and gleeful delivery.  His willful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.  This  hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gagsmithery can be seen at all the top clubs across the country with Marx regularly playing Jongleurs, Komedia and The Comedy Store and annually compering Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury Festivals.

LIVE WORK

Carey Marx regularly comperes the best clubs in the country and plays at the most prestigious festivals.  His first solo show to appear at the Leicester Comedy Festival won a nomination for Best Show.

Carey Marx has performed all over the world including a run in the Middle East and he performed at the New Zealand Comedy Festival for the first time in 2010 scooping the award for Best International Show.

In 2011 Carey Marx returned to the New Zealand Comedy Festival to perform, where he was awarded the prize of Best International Show for the second time- making him the only act in the history of the festival to achieve such a feat.

“… a darkly comic Quentin Tarantino… guarantees a solid cascade of laughs.” – Chortle

“…mischievous but smart” – Edfestmag

“…thoughtful, shocking and hilarious. Laziness and Stuff is a cleverly conceived, far from lazy hour of comedy.” – The Skinny

Opium for the people… a clever man… the audience are in stitches” – Broadway Baby
