Brendhan Lovegrove


Award-Winning Comedian, Entertainer, MC, Live Host

It’s no joke that Brendhan Lovegrove is extremely good at being funny.

He’s won almost every local comedy award going and holds a record eight New Zealand Comedy Guild awards for Best Male Comedian.

He’s also extremely experienced, having spent the last two decades honing his caustic wit and crowd-wrangling skills at clubs, pubs and corporate gigs in New Zealand and offshore.

Known for his risqué comedy, slightly manic persona and motormouth delivery, Brendhan laps up crowd interaction (note to shy retiring types, don’t sit in the front row at his shows) and heckler beware: you won’t go unchallenged. His bold humour is intelligent and layered, and, ever the professional, he willingly tailors it to any event.

Canon NZ Internal Awards 2019

Brendhan recently MC’d at our internal Awards and Celebration Evening, where he was very professional and did a great job to consider our audience and ensure the content was suitable for all. Brendhan provided fantastic entertainment across the evening, where our team were on the edge of their seats with laughter. We would definitely invite him to speak again and recommend Brendhan as a speaker for corporate events – Laura Barrett, Corporate Communications Manager at Canon New Zealand.
