Carey Marx's wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. Formerly in double-act 'Kez and Jodi', a comedy illusion act. Live wire, Canadian comedy magician. Winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival 2009, he blends dark humour with a mischievous, gleeful delivery, '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) 'Hilariously demented' (Edinburgh Evening News) 'Excellent' (The Guardian) 'He is a masterful stylist, gracefully switching from surrealism to sardonic irony' (Skinny Fest) 'Anecdotally debauched... But if his lines are frequently sick, they're elegantly written, too, and there's a childlike glee to his naughtiness' (The Herald) 'A darkly comic Quentin Tarantino' (Chortle) 'Opium for the people' (Broadway Baby) 'supremely crafted comedy' (The List).
