The Brendhan Lovegrove Project

Brendhan Lovegrove in

The Brendhan Lovegrove Project

He’s flown the Kiwi comedy flag on the UK Pro Circut for the last four years as both a headliner and a host, now he has returned home, with his wit razor sharp, to challenge audiences to laugh at this years ODDFELLOWS NZ International Comedy Festival.
Arguably the most dangerously talented standup comedian in New Zealand. 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.
In 1998 he was a joint Winner of NZ’s prestigious Billy T Award for Comedy, since then his TV credits include "Live At Jongleurs" for UKGold/ITV and countless spots on New Zealand's' foremost stand up show "Pulp Comedy", including the last series which he hosted. Brendhan achieved another first, when he was the first Kiwi to ever get a paid spot at London's Comedy Store.
Catch him at the top of his game!
