Critics Review

Simon Howard - Theatreview.org.nz'From a police officer to a teacher, all the way through to a telemarketer, Ego approaches his show in a relaxed and calm manner, never really leaving the centre of the stage, and using the slide-show as his guide...'open/close
A slide-show analysis of the title Amazingballs begins the set with fairly mixed results, which leads into the main narrative thread of the hour, as Ego begins to look into other professions he could work in if he decides not to be a comedian anymore. This comes about, we are told, as a result of his seven year old son asking him to tell a joke and his subsequent failure to make him laugh.

From a police officer to a teacher, all the way through to a telemarketer, Ego approaches his show in a relaxed and calm manner, never really leaving the centre of the stage, and using the slide-show as his guide. Other than a couple of minor heckles from the back row, he sticks to his material without masses of audience interaction.

His final recollection of how his son manages to make his joke sound funny to his friend is undoubtedly the highlight of the night and an extremely funny story to send the near-capacity crowd into the night with.

TV3.co.nz'... so hilarious it had the audience in tears.'open/close
Paul Ego was at his best at his first show for the NZ Comedy Festival 2014.

The small basement type room of Rangatira at Q Theatre offered an intimate atmosphere.

Paul Ego had an instant rapport with his audience kick starting the show with audience interaction.

Paul’s anecdotes of parenthood, marriage, supermarket shopping and thoughts on midlife career changes were so hilarious it had the audience in tears.

If you get the chance, make sure you catch Paul Ego live. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss.
