Jeremy Elwood is a 25 year veteran of the New Zealand comedy scene. From solo shows to international festivals, private events to business awards evenings, Jeremy has done it all with his trademark combination of topical comedy, social commentary and political satire.

Formerly head writer on Three’s The Project, and a regular contributor to RNZ’s The Panel and Three’s 7Days, Jeremy has also appeared on numerous TV and stage productions both in New Zealand and internationally. He has headlined comedy clubs and festivals across New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Singapore and the UK, and performed in places as far-flung as Papua New Guinea, East Timor, Indonesia and the Chatham Islands.

He is a multiple NZ Comedy Guild award winner, including “Best Male Comedian” twice, and a former nominee for the Billy T Award. He has also worked in theatre as an actor, writer and director including lead roles at The Court Theatre (Christchurch), Fortune Theatre (Dunedin), Bats (Wellington) and The Basement (Auckland).

His speaking and MC career has covered awards nights, after dinner speaking, conferences and trade shows for a vastly wide range of companies and organisations. From barristers to baristas, mechanics to medics, politicians to panelbeaters, Jeremy Elwood will add entertainment and professionalism to any event.

Intelligent, professional and vastly experienced, Jeremy can fit his own style into any event, project or production, bringing with him all of the skills he has honed over his entire career.
