Comedian Carey Marx is the writer and star of BBC Radio 4’s Intensive Carey, twice winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival, and Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show nominee.
His previous twelve solo Fringe shows have been described as, ‘Quite brutal, in a darkly comic Quentin Tarantino kind of way’ (Chortle), ‘Comedy of the most cerebral variety’ (Herald), ‘Essential Viewing’ (Fest), ‘Supremely-crafted comedy’ (List), ‘Awkward misﬁt Marx has a genius for the unexpected and hilarious left turns’ (Guardian), ‘Such a devilish grin, that you can only admire him for being such a magnificent bastard’ (The Scotsman).
A circuit veteran, Marx concocts his own blend of dark humour with mischief and glee. His wilful disregard for the controversial and taboo is tempered with his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. An international multi-award winner, Carey is no stranger to screen or radio with credits ranging from Channel 4’s Gas to BBC One’s The Stand Up Show as well as his own radio show, Intensive Carey (BBC Radio 4) adapted from his wildly successful 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show of the same title in 2015. With such a unique voice it is no surprise that Marx has written for the likes of Newzoids (ITV), The Now Show, (Radio 4), and Nick Doody’s Bigipedia (BBC Radio 4).
