WINNER 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.
Alongside his stand up, Carey records a popular weekly topical podcast with comedian Barry Castagnola, called "The Proper Gander". The hilarious show has received 5 star reviews from listeners and is available through iTunes.
“Marx's slick delivery lends itself to clever verbal comedy, while his flexible features can switch in an instant from cheeky schoolboy grin to menacing stare.” The Scotsman
“Anecdotally debauched … But if his lines are frequently sick, they're elegantly written, too, and there's a childlike glee to his naughtiness … Underrated and for the most part criminally overlooked.” The Herald
"Hilariously demented” Edinburgh Evening News
“This may seem like a dangerous selection of topics for a midday slot at a middle-class festival but Marx is smart, with writing that is well structured, clever and slickly delivered. So rather than cause offensive, he is actually charming and very, very funny.” Chortle (Latitude Festival)
"Excellent.” The Guardian.
“Unbelievably Funny.” Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
“The man has a wicked sense of humour … a star in waiting” One 4 Review
"highly engaging, devilish, menacing and totally mesmerizing show” Edinburgh Guide
“He is a masterful styalist, gracefully switching from surrealism to sardonic irony.” Skinny Fest
“a truly winning hour of entertainment” Metro
