Elliot Wengler

I am Elliot Wengler and I am a comedian. Hopefully. I am twenty-two years old, and despite my analytical and cynical view of the world, I use stand-up comedy to communicate an almost naïve and overly joyous view of the world. It’s a contradiction, but a fun one.

Background, Style, Influences:
Whether its improvising an entire set about a utopia due to a civil servant incapable of stealthily hiding in the back-row, or sticking to three years worth of honed anecdotes and observations about the aspects of the world I refuse to understand, I bring as much energy to fuel my comedy as possible. To use the third person, the 2013-14 UEA Headlights Comedy Society President has been performing and writing stand-up, sketch and topical comedy for three years and proven himself at over a hundred and fifty gigs since 2012 including Arts Centres, London Clubs and Theatres across the UK.

Citing key influences as Dara O Briain, Simon Amstell and Pierre Novellie, I aim to pinpoint the most amusing aspects of my own misunderstandings of the world to bring the comedy, and improvise and play with the audience’s own false perceptions as an MC.

Quotes:
“Elliot Wengler offered proficient compèring. He created a comfortable back-and-forth atmosphere with the audience and his ability to conjure up even the most obscure reference to 2008 popstars was pretty enviable.” – The Norwich Tab.

“Wengler’s compering and stand-up was a real treat on the night, varying from truly funny stories to exaggerated interaction with the audience that left other members howling in their seats (tip: don’t be a latecomer). His enthusiasm turned infectious and set the bar high for the night.” - Concrete-Online.co.uk (Review of ‘The Season Finale’).

“A solid act with a great range of material. Elliot has a greatly likeable stage presence. A sure booking for an opening, closing and MC spots.” - Joe Frost, the Birdcage Comedy Caberet Promoter

“Rapid fire material, and pinpoint.” – Gonzo’s Tea Rooms

“Who could fail to adore this comic?” – Redneck Comedy

“Funny, witty and extremely engaging.” - Phil Alexander
