Werzel

Perth's King of Comedy

Werzel headshot

Werzel Montague started doing open mike comedy spots at the Laugh Resort Comedy Club at Pockets on Lake St in 1994.

He was funny, then very funny, then hilarious, then sucked, then funny again, then really funny, then turned professional in 1995 and kept going.

He’s managed to eat pretty well since, so it’s obviously going ok.

He has played in comedy festivals, elegant theatres, country pubs, smokey New York basements, and more than a few tin sheds in the desert and rocked the roof off each.

He once died horribly in front of a very angry crowd of Rugby Union fans. Apparently they think it’s a real game.

 

The West Australian

“…The show brings laughter again and again, provokes some deep thoughts but then reminds us that hey, life goes on and with life comes more laughter. Montague is a self-professed bullshit artist, but when presented with such eloquence, such deep humour and keen observation of the world around us, this makes for a great performance… Montague has produced possibly the best offering from the quasi-autobiographical/confessional genre at this year’s festival.”Artshub
