Jeremy, like most comedians, gets asked the same questions over and over again.
The second most common+ is “Where do you get your ideas from?” The answer is simple. Comedians take notes.
Like students take notes when they study or detectives take notes when they investigate, comedians take notes of their observations of the funny side of life. These observations propagate ideas, ideas bloom into material and material blossoms into full-length shows. Jeremy Elwood’s Notes is one such show.
Jeremy has become a national favourite as a core cast member of TV3’s hit topical comedy show 7Days. His opinions and insights are sought after around the country with regular appearances on Radio New Zealand National’s The Panel and his blog Political Animal. He has appeared on a numerous TV shows, the Comedy Gala, AotearoHA, A Night at the Classic and his own episode of Funny Roots, which explored his comedy heritage in his country of birth, Canada.
Jeremy has a unique ability to create shows that are both hilarious and stimulating. His skill is in making the thought-provoking funny and the silliness engaging. Those who have seen Jeremy know his shows aren’t just his club set padded out to an hour. This is a well-constructed hour of comedy with fresh, original and thoughtful material that you won’t see anywhere else.
2012 saw critics rave about his show exploring the Mayan end of the world prophecy, "Jeremy Elwood’s Time Bomb";
“Jeremy really does knock it out of the park” – tvnz.co.nz
“He’s snarky, opinionated, and hilarious” – theatreview.org.nz
A must see for any Comedy Festival, 2013 sees Jeremy with some notes for you. They could be musical, philosophical or even post-it, but they will all be comical. Oh, and probably some dick jokes.
+The most common question is “Tell us a joke”. The answer is “No”
