Bio

Guy Montgomery is an award-winning comedian, improviser and screenwriter, who is tragically best known as co-host of the international smash podcast ‘The Worst Idea of All Time’. (LA Podfest 2015, Now Hear This Fest 2016, over 6 million downloads, features on; AV Club, VICE, BBC4, the Guardian (UK) and sold out shows in LA, New York, Portland and San Francisco.)

A stand-up comedian in the style of everyone you like, his surreal style of bemoaning the everyday has fast won him praise and awards in his native New Zealand and as far west of New Zealand as Australia.

Guy is a core cast member of SNORT, the smash hit weekly improvised show that has regularly sold out shows at the Basement Theatre for the last three years and won Best Ensemble Cast at the Auckland Theatre Awards 2014.

Guy has featured in Just For Laughs Sydney (2016), the New Zealand Comedy Gala (2015, 2016), the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and was chosen to tour on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow 2016.

Guy has written and hosted 60 episodes of Fail Army for TV3 and was the former host and writer of U late on TVNZU. He also writes a weekly newsletter which you can subscribe to once you finish reading this gripping biography.

Guy also co-wrote and starred in the short film Return which was selected to Clermont-Ferrand and won best script at Show Me Shorts 2015.

He has been on TV, the radio and the internet, a genuine triple threat.
