Brisbane Comedy Festival 2023

The multi-award-winning comedian and self-proclaimed people’s princess of New Zealand, Chris Parker, is back with a new hour of his award-winning comedy.

First came love, then came marriage – now, as a 32-year-old, childless inner-city living homosexual, Chris is naturally wondering what next. A purebred dachshund is on the cards, but there are fears he could become one of those people who treats his dog like a child and force friends to come over to celebrate ‘doggos’ 1st birthday.

Chris Parker is most commonly known for his funny Instagram and TikTok videos which built him a huge social media audience. Also, his legendary win on the hit New Zealand TV show ‘Celebrity Treasure Island’ and, most strangely, a felted hat he made during the 2020 nationwide lockdown that was then acquired and is on display at The National Museum of New Zealand.

Chris was listed as The NZ Herald’s top 5 entertainment heroes of 2020 and, in 2021, was nominated for Television Personality of the Year. In 2022, he released the comedy/documentary special ‘Chris Parker: Back To School’ about all boy schools in Christchurch and starred in the New Zealand feature film ‘Nude Tuesday’. His debut novel ‘Here for a Good time’ is now available through Allen & Unwin.
