In a world populated by tv friendly comics, Brain is a maverick

Most days Chris Brain is delightful, but like his mind, his comedy is peppered with the dark side of existence. A consummate comic, Brain delights in showing us the underside of the world in his own unique, hilarious way.

Chris Brain famously won the Billy T Award in 2009 for a show that dealt with his own demons, anxiety, addiction and depression. At the time he smugly joked that "life was good but he may not be this way next year". The following year was a long walk up a very steep hill. Wracked with anxiety each day victory was not just getting out of bed, it was also not having a drink and being able to perform comedy onstage. For this feat he won the Spirit of the Festival, and showed us all what a superbly strong man he is.

Rising out of the comedy ashes of the past decade, Brain is fighting fit and out to prove to you all why he is called one of the country's top standups, why he won the Billy T Award, and why Rhys Darby had him support him on stage during his Australian and NZ tours.

"He has a wonderful way of peppering his anecdotes with some ferociously intelligent and killer one liners... you do have to have your wits about you or you'll miss the amusing subtlety of some of what he's saying."

"One of NZ's Top Comedians"
