His manic physical presence combined with a sureness of delivery and material that can , at once, be described as verging on the psychotic side of human nature, has delighted and, indeed, frightened audiences throughout New Zealand. He is a favourite on the Campus circuit and one of the leading headliners and MC's at The Classic. BRENDHAN has now appeared on numerous local television programmes including all 8 series of PULP COMEDY TV, the last series of which he hosted.
