Chris is one of New Zealand’s top comedians, writers, and actors, as well as an active voice of the LGBTQ+ community here in Aotearoa. He’s featured as both a writer and actor on Kiwi comedy shows Funny Girls and Jono & Ben - the latter of which saw him have his own segment “Chris Out of Water'', which established him as a core cast member. He has performed stand up to sell-out crowds both at home and overseas, and in 2018 won the Fred Award for Best Show at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival for his show Camp Binch. A natural both on the stage and in front of the camera, Chris has worked as a cast member in the cult hit improvised stage show Snort, and is a regular on comedy panel shows such as 7 Days and Have You Been Caught. It’s no surprise, then, that Chris is a brilliant presenter, his ability to adapt and bring his unique sense of humour combined with his professionalism is remarkable.

Chris Parker was fantastic to work with for our production. Super professional with media; the perfect mix of prepared and adaptable. We got some great media coverage due to Chris’ humorous, warm style which conveyed what an enjoyable event it would be. Chris owned the role as the Host. He adapted the script to make it current and his humour with the broad audience was pitched at just the right level – providing laughs and pacing as well as covering all logistics. Chris was a real pleasure to work with for everyone involved in this production. I highly recommend Chris Parker for any event or show where you require energy, intelligent humour and professionalism.
