Peter Egner burst onto the Sydney comedy scene in the mid 90’s and quickly became the hottest new comic on the scene. He made several television appearances and before long he moved into writing for TV.  Since then, Peter has written for nearly every Australian comedy show you could think of, except the news, I think Sandra Sully writes her own stuff.

Although Peter does most of his comedy work with a pen these, he has performed on every stage in Australia and his low key absurdism still makes him a favourite on the comedy circuit.

After a white-bred, middle class upbringing, Chris turned out an arty-trendy sort of try hard, and a magnet for dominant women. A product of his environment, Chris lives a life of weird repetitions with no time for rational thought.

His sharp-witted and daringly clever act has seen him steadily climb the comic ladder. In 1998 he won the title of The Comedian of the Year at the famous Harold Park Hotel in Sydney, past winners include the Umbilical Brothers, Flacco, Carl Barron and Kenny Graham. Chris was also successful in taking out the Grand Final for the 1999 Triple J Raw Comedy Competition, in Melbourne, which earned him a trip to Edinburgh Comedy Festival.

Chris’ clever, provocative and original style of comedy is guaranteed to crack them up where ever he goes.
